“We are living in a material world." This famous line in one of Madonna's songs entitled " Material Girl " will never outgrow itself. Ever since the beginnings of monetary means, the main focus of living is getting more money and to be as successful as possible. This became a huge issue during the 1920's and two social classes are emerged, the "new and old money", and the poverty-stricken classes. The possession of material wealth however, can't bring true happiness. Love is an important factor in this equation; when you don't have love, it is hard to say that you are happy. In F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby, Daisy Buchanan's case proves this to its entirety. First of all, when Daisy having to decide between an empty marriage with her husband Tom and Jay Gatsby, she chooses Tom even though he doesn't make her truly happy. But in 1917, Daisy became acquainted with Jay Gatsby from Louisiana. Though they seemed very close with each other, marriage wasn't in the picture.
