Tom Buchanan cheating with Myrtle
When Gatsby's car hit Myrtle
Catherine states “if I was them I’d get a divorce and get married to each other right away" (Fitzgerald 33). This is ironic because Tom has the perfect wife so why would he be having an affair with someone who is her complete opposite? Myrtle is really the one who wants to get married but all Tom wants is to just have a fling with Myrtle.
Nick states, "They conducted themselves according to the rules of behavior associated with the rules of an amusement park" (Fitzgerald 41). Gatsbys parties are so wild that the theme of reckless disregard for others is all that is happening. His parties are a chance to let loose so that people have a time of fun and not worry about their everyday real life.
Nick states "a moment later she rushed out into the dusk, waving her hands and shouting - before he could move from his door the business was over" (Fitzgerald 137). This would also contribute to the theme of reckless disregard for others because Daisy, who was driving the car, was driving fast, she did not think that she may be putting other people in danger.
