  • My Husband

    When I imagined getting married I thought everything would be great. My husband would have a regular low-key job like me, we would stay in one area, and we would be with family. The marriage would not be perfect (because no marriage is) but we would have each other. In the end know I would know that my significant other is relatively safe in his boring job, and knowing he would be there every night was all I wanted. However, a spouse that came home every night is not what I got. I got married to a military man, and although I am not too shocked at how our life is, it is very different from what I wanted. I remember seeing television shows about military wives, and all those commercials about veterans. I also remember watching the news, and barley paying any attention to the status of what was going on in Iraq. There was always heartbreaking stories of those who had soldiers oversea, how some would appear on talk shows crying and carrying on about how much they missed their loved one. I was unaffected; it was not as though I did not care about how much these families felt. It was only that situation was not happening to me. I did not have a son or brother or sister or wife in Iraq so it was meaningless commiseration. I would tear up from time to time, think of these sad…

Writers like Theodore Roethke,…

  • John's Oppressive Husband

    Another instance where John proves to be insensitive to his wife would be when she builds up the courage to speak to him about her fears and leaving their “vacation home”. John answers her by saying “What is it, little girl?”(Gilman 93) this is not how the modern husband would respond to his wife considering they would be about the same age. In continuation, the narrator says “John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that in marriage” (Gilman 85). In the average marriage a husband would not…
