The first is that he kills himself on purpose. Before they ever get started he pops a Viagra which is not good for someone whom has a heart condition. As Beezy Marsh stated in her article Viagra 'a danger to heart risk victims' “The impotence drug Viagra could lead to blood clots and may be dangerous in those already at risk of a heart attack and stroke, it has emerged.” At first you might think that he didn’t have a heart condition but after he dies and Jessie is speaking with Gerald there is mention of the Viagra. Gerald had been taking Viagra for a little while but had hid it from her until she finally noticed it. In this talk there was some mention about how he shouldn’t have been taking it which hints at a heart condition. Therefore Gerald knew that with his heart condition worsening and his age a little extra Viagra would get the job done and kill him just after he gets her tied …show more content…
This is definitely the nasty thoughts of a Satanist. First of all him wanting to do this to his wife and abuse her in this way is bad enough on its own. It makes it worse once you learn of her past and the sexual abuse she received from her father when she was younger. His actions towards her made her flash back to the abuse and give up a little more inside. How did he know this you might ask? Well for starters she never told him of this time but with him being married to her and knowing what hurt her and a little bit of his satanic rituals he discovered everything he needed to degrade her. Also when he is trying to play out his little rape fantasy and she asks him to stop he seems to feed on it. Every time she says stop or get off of me he enjoys himself even more. Who else enjoys something like that as much as a satanic worshipper like

    Isra is meant to blindly and submissively serve her husband Adam, without thinking about herself. This theme of abuse is developed as the novel depicts a disturbing sexual scene from Isra and Adam’s wedding night. “Blood rushed down my thighs, and I took a deep breath. I tried to ignore the burning sensation between my legs, tried to forget that I was in a strange room, in a strange bed, with a strange man. I wished my mother warned me about this night, about the powerlessness a woman feels when another man strikes through her skin, about the shame that fills her when she is forced to give herself up, forced to be still.” This type of patriarchal philosophy and belief about male-domination of sexual relationships is appallingly common in cultures that are misogynistic.…
