Symbol #2

In the book Daisy gets married to Tom later saying that she married him because she didn't know if Gatspy would return. While explaining to Gatspy the reason why she didn't wait, she says that "rich girls don't marry poor boys" which is saying that even if she did love him it wouldn't matter because she wanted riches, and thats really all she cared about other than herself. Daisy wants the life of no hassle, no work, and lots of money which is only possible for a very wealthy person. Daisy doesn't care weather Tom is a lier, a fake, or even a cheater because all she cares about is his riches. She doesn't want to like a normal life with a job and have to work for anything, and this is what this picture is portraying.
