The quote “There would be no one to live for during those coming years; she would live for herself.” Helped convinced that Mr. Mallard felt that marriage was a trap. It seems as if there were promises and false hopes when entering the marriage and it all begin to look like a lie. In the evidence, in the story it also seems as if she had a choice to be single, she would in a heartbeat. The part where she says “And yet she had loved him – sometimes. Often, she had not. What did it matter! What could love, the unsolved mystery, count for in face of this possession of self-assertion which she suddenly recognized as the strongest impulse of her being!” She didn’t care anymore about him and really wanted to throw cation to the wind. This is because she would feel young again and as her old self. She also thought a marriage was awful because of all the duties she still had to do with out accomplishing her real goals. Mrs. Mallard would finally get a degree and finally for full her careers and possibly get to meet new people. All these positive outcomes surely outweigh any marriage for her.The story ended in an ironic way because even though the husband was alive, she was already dead in the inside. This showed that he wasn’t at work and were most likely with another woman. The irony was she thought she was free but wasn’t as the end and for what? A heart breaks. What a waste she’d probably though. She is basically showing a representation of how woman give their whole life for a man that doesn’t even do the same. Men are and continue to break a woman’s heart and has been happening for years to come. It has become problematic. Chopin wants the readers to know the pain of the female aspect of life. The point she is trying to represent the change that needs to happen. This will make peace for the minds of woman and the generations to come. In conclusion, Mrs. Mallards story helped showed a glimpse of how the woman in general, herself and the author felt about woman’s Rights. That women are to be treated equally to men and be able to make up their own minds on what they want to do. The point she is trying to make is that no matter how heard you try to live for others and put your self aside they would always let you down. Even with woman’s rights and the feminine action she was probably also saying you must live life to the fullest. Do you no matter what the law was because life is not promise to no one. Another point Chopin was probably trying to make was if you work hard you should be respected as so. This must deal with getting a job and getting paid what the worker deserves. It shouldn’t depend on gender but with brains. She wanted things to change for the future generations and to have equality all around. Everyone is equal, and it should stay that way!
