Wuthering Heights Formal Essay By Hussein Gillani To be married to a certain individual shows a commitment to that individual and moreover complete devotion to the individual It also signifies that all feelings toward that person have to be solely for them and not for anyone else A strong emotional attachment must be present between the two individuals These are the two main features among many other smaller trivial ones in maintaining a successful marriage It is clear that the marriages in Emily Brontes Wuthering Heights lack these qualities The story portrays true love and compares it to the couples which do not belong together Two examples from the story of characters which do not belong together are the marriages between Catherine Earnshaw and Edgar Linton and between Isabelle Linton and Heathcliff People who marry in haste or for the wrong reason often encounter unhappiness and discontent within the marriage Isabelle Linton is a very lonesome lady Living at the Grange she doesnt get to go out much and is pretty much isolated in the house She doesnt have many friends or people to talk to It seems as though Isabelle is not necessarily in love with Heathcliff but further attracted to him Isabelle lives a very unexciting and predictable childhood Heathcliff is the exact opposite a mysterious man This is what attracts Isabelle to Heathcliff Heathcliff on the other hand does not have any feelings for Isabelle even though he does encourage her to love him In fact earlier in the novel Heathcliff shows that he despises her Heathcliff only marries Isabelle to get revenge on Edgar and gain the fortunes of Wuthering Heights We know this because he keeps her away from her brother as much as possible He also may have done this to cause Catherine to feel a bit of jealousy Through the novel Isabelle starts to understand that Heathcliff does not really love her Heathcliff even admits
