Tom was cheating on Daisy with his mistress in New York. Jordan tells Nick this because he didn't know about the affair. "Toms got a women in New York" (Fitzgerald 15). Nick already doesn't like Tom, he hasn't from the beginning. He basically just met Tom and he already finds out he's cheating in his cousin. This wasn't the only women he was cheating on Daisy with.
Myrtle is married to George. Tom goes to New York to see myrtle while George is there. Both Myrtle and Tom have horrible, cheating relationships because of them. George wasn't suspicious about how much time myrtle and Tom spent together. Tom calls George dumb, "he's so dumb he doesn't know he's alive." (Fitzgerald 26). This shows Tom has a a horrible personality.
Tom isn't the the nicest or he doesn't hold the relationship together but he is looked upon is the society because he has Lots of money and he lives in East Egg. "Nowadays people begin by sneering at family life and family institutions, and next they'll throw everything overboard and have intermarriage between black and white" (Fitzgerald 103). This was most people's dreams in the 1920s.
