Comparison: The Storm And Are These Actual Miles

1650 words - 7 pages

It is a late afternoon; the beagles are chirping, as they fade into the sunset, the waves are crashing along the seashore. The diamond ring reflects the rays of the sun on the woman’s finger, from a distance. The man beside her gives her his full attention. As he reaches for her hands, he comes closer to her, staring into her lovely eyes, while his fingers run through her silky hair, down onto her lips. He picks her up into the cold breeze, holding her tightly, not wanting to let go. The creases of his smile express the happiness and the love he feels whenever he is around her. The man leans towards her to give her a kiss, which symbolizes his love for her. Is this the typical husband we know of everyday? No. In society, a husband is defined “as a married man” (“Husband”). In other words, a husband is a person who is in a legal relationship with another person. Kate Chopin portrays two different types of husbands through two main characters, Bobinot and Alcee, during the 1960’s in the story “The Storm.” Bobinot illustrate the meaning of a husband because he demonstrates the attributions of a night shining armor to his wife, Calixta. In contrast, Alcee represents the opposite of a faithful husband because he is dishonest and Raymond Carver in the 1980’s validates how the role of the husband has changed throughout time, similar to how Alcee does not take his marriage or his wife seriously. A husband is not only a married man, but also someone who is respectful, faithfully, and understanding.
There are two kinds of husbands in society; one who lacks respect, loyalty, faithfulness, and responsibility toward their spouse, and the other one who contains all the attributions of a prince charming. Based on the husband’s culture, it will influence how they treat their wives. For instance, many Chinese, Arabic, and Hindus are dominant toward their partners because their culture believes that a wife has no say or value. These types of men have control over everything a woman does as if they were puppets. Women are treated as an object instead of a human being. Women cannot do anything without their husband’s approval; if they do they pay the consequences. In addition, this type of behavior occurs in many Latin countries and even in the U.S.A, where husbands are abusive toward their wife emotionally and physically. These husbands know that women are very sensitive and vulnerable because they avoid seeking help when they are afraid. It gets to the point that some wives go through depression, which leads them to commit suicide. Nevertheless, not all husbands are affected by society or their culture; there are decent husbands in the world. Moreover, in the T.V. show I Love Lucy, Ricky Ricardo would be a great exemplar of a husband. He always helps Lucy whenever she is in trouble; which proves his loyalty to her. For instance, when Lucy is outside of her window pretending to be superman for her child’s birthday; however, she ends up in a sticky situation. ...
