Jordan's story reveals more than we could ever guess happened with Daisy's marriage. The starts when jordan sees Dasy with an officer. the officer was Gatsby. Gatsby leaves for the war and Daisy ends up marrying Tom. It is not sure why she marries him. The day before the wedding Daisy is found crying over a note that we can assume is from Gatsby. This and the fact that Daisy was disturbed by the mention of this man shows that she loved him and has always loved him. She married just to feel something but she knows it was a mistake and she wanted to wait for Gatsby.

Jordan’s story reveals a lot about Daisy marriage that we did not know. We can conclude from Jordan’s story that Daisy quickly married Tom, and really wanted to be with Gatsby, since she loved him so much. I think that Daisy would not have married Tom if Gatsby had not ended things between them. Even thought Jordan did say in her story that Daisy was and still is in love with Tom, her love for Gatsby was stronger. Also, the fact that Daisy remains faithful proves her to really want her marriage to wok. She also remains faithful because she hasn’t seen Gatsby for a long time. I think that if she had the chance to see Gatsby again, she would not remain faithful to Tom and would think twice about her decision of marrying him.

Jordan tells us basically that Daisy was former lovers with Gatsby. She says they were together but Gatsby went into the army and she got married. When she gets btohered when they mention Gatsby to her its obvious that she still loves him.

A few interesting things are revealed about Daisy from the story that Jordan told Nick. The most interesting fact was that Daisy and Gatsby had actually had a relationship back in the war. That was a suprise to me and to most other readers. Jordan's story also reveals that Daisy is not happy with her marriage. The most obvious instance is that she almost did not marry Tom when she recieved a letter that literally made her crazy. It was msot likely from Gatsby. It is pretty obvious that Daisy still has feelings for Gatsby.

Jordan's story reveals a lot to us. Some things that are revealed are some ideas that never could have crossed the mind. Jordan first says she sees Daisy with a rich man who was an officer. Then she is going to marry Tom. She is seen on the day before the wedding crying because she read a note she got from Gatsby. She ends up marrying Tom but I still believe her true love is Gatsby.

When Jordan was telling her story about Daisy's marriage, she revealed information that never would have been thought about. She reveals that when Gatsby went to war, Daisy ended up marrying Tom. She married Tom because she didnt want to be alone. She likes knowing that she has someone. But Daisy discovers a note that is from Gatsby and knew that she had made a huge mistake and wants him back.

Jordan's Story reveals many details about Daisy and her marriage. It shows that she really looks up to Jordan which explains why they are such good friends. also it shows why Tom and Daisy since tom was more a back up then her first choice. It also shows why Daisy avoided talking about Gatsby in chapter 1.

The story that Jordan reveals to the reader is epic. Insted of marriying tom out of love it seems as if she married him out of fear of being alone. She loves Gatsby.
