"The Story of an Hour" by Kate Chopin shows a different point of view about marriage. In the time of the story, married women were not masters of their fate. They relied on their husbands for financial support and were expected to do a great deal in return. As in the case of Louise Mallard, money was not the issue. Since Louise was ill, she had been told what to do and never left to make choices for herself.
