Daisy praying because Tom told Myrtle she was catholic.
Don't Drink and Drive
How come Tom and Myrtle didn't get divorces and marry each other? Tom said," it was really his wife that was keeping them apart" (Fitzgerald 33). She was catholic and didn't believe in divorce. Daisy was not a catholic. Tom had lied because he doesn't want to marry myrtle and give up his social status. This connects to Reckless Disregard for Others because he doesn't care about the affect his lying and cheating has on others
Nick saw an example of someone who has a reckless disregard for others when Nick saw, " in the ditch beside the road, right side up, but violently shorn of one wheel..."(Fitzgerald 53). This shows Reckless Disregard for Others because this person decided to drive after drinking and didn't think about theconsequence
Gatsby himself is characterized as having a reckless disregard for others when he is speeding and gets pulled over by the cops "...I heard a familiar jug-jug-spat! of a motorcycle, and a frantic policeman rode alongside" (Fitzgerald 68). This goes to show that along with many other citizens from West or East Egg , Gatsby thinks that because he has money he can do whatever he wants and nothing bad will happen to him. What he doesn't realize is that usually the poor people have to pay for the rich peoples mistakes.
