As he went through the process of attaining her love and goal to marry her, he was put through events that destructed him emotionally.

(130) Despite her affection for Gatsby, Daisy still chooses to stay with Tom because of Gatsby’s shameful past and his connection to bootlegging and crimes, even though she’s also aware of Tom’s affair, which implies her lack of intellectualism.

Estella also gets married to a man that loves her, Bently Drummle, but does not return his love, and chooses to marry for profits only.
