Katherine Chopin has a different opinion of love marriage than most writers of her day In her writing she indicates to her readers that marriage though built on a foundation of love can not contain passion Love is considered a feeling that inspires passion and romance It continues on throughout the marriage but the passion and romance are lost somewhere in the struggles of married life This loss can also occur in the task of raising children causing a sort of neglect for the love of ones life Passion is what inspires an individual to do anything Chopin it seems is saying that this is an impossibility in marriage in the since of love or sexual relationship Passion however can be found outside the marriage with other sexual partners It can also be found in other areas such as in The Story of an Hour The main character in this story exemplifies this truth by the statement made after she got over the shock of her husbands death Free free free Her passion came from the realization that she was once again free to do as she wished Marriage it seems is considered somewhat sacred even though it was almost as if it was acceptable for extramarital relations to take place in Chopins stories She seems to think this act of breaking the holy vows of marriage was a justifiable act
