  • THEME

  • Marriages in this time period were mostly arranged to either gain wealth and escape poverty or to join companies. This did not always ensure the happiness between spouses. The Story of an Hour proves that most marriages in the time period were toxic. Neither of the spouses would be able to escape the marriage because it was considered taboo.
