&nbsp.In the following parts of this paper, first Chaucer’s contribution and work have been evaluated. it is followed by George Eliot’s Middlemarch and before the conclusion part Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House has been provided.

This work has critically highlighted the role and work of women for the institution of marriage. In this novel, the author portrays the unfaithful picture and role of women even after the marriage where Alison enjoys and prefers to retain physical and emotional relations with more than one person. For example, after marrying John, she starts to get attracted by other characters in the tale. and this attraction goes beyond the traditional boundary of chat and ends with the physical relationship with more than one character.
A woman is an emotional being.3 When this aspect of ‘woman’ is analyzed with today’s world, many cases confirm that wife is either compelled to develop and retain physical relationship or she prefers to violate the traditional way of life in which wife is strictly disallowed and it is unethical to develop a physical relationship with strangers and others. In this regard, it is important to highlight that this type of immature behavior even in today’s world clearly hallmarks that women have not been emotionally and mentally sound enough to understand the repercussions of developing or having such a relationship. For example, it is common and understood man’s nature that he does not want her wife even his fiancée to have a relationship with others as it is an inbuilt man’s psyche that wife cannot be allowed to have an extra-marital relationship under any circumstances. In this regard, it is important to mention that if a wife builds such a relationship, it&nbsp.would not be possible for the husband to tolerate such a relationship. and in some cases, similar behavior is also demonstrated by the woman when a man develops an extra-marital relationship.
