Janie tried to find love in Chapters 3 and 4 of Their Eyes Are Watching God
I’m still getting used to reading Their Eyes are Watching God, by Zora Neale Hurston. I find it kind of difficult because the language is a bit hard to understand. Janie made the right decision in Chapter 4 by running away, because she did not love that man. In my opinion I would never want to be forced to marry someone I have absolutely no interest in. I think I would have done the same thing Janie did, but then again I would stand up for myself and let my family and friends know that I don’t want to marry someone I have no interest in. That wouldn’t be fair. No one wants to marry someone they have no interest in.
What is a relationship if there isn't any spark in it? I’m sure Janie found nothing in common with the man they wanted her to marry. "His belly is to big too, now, and his toe-nails look lak mule foots." And: "Ah'm just as stiff as you is stout." Janie has nothing in common with the man they chose for her to marry. The man obviously disgusts her with his appearance.
Another quote is, “Cause you told me Ah mus gointer love him, and, and Ah don’t. Maybe if somebody was to tell me how, Ah could do it”. After reading this you can tell that Janie has made an attempt to love the man is felt so unattractive too.
I think that maybe Janie will return home, and she will get married to the man, as much as she may not want to. I don’t think she would be satisfied with him though.
