- In this post of mine you are most likely not going to know what I'm referring to but I will try to explain as best as possible.
- Living in Turkey I never watched TV series because they are long (1 episode=1hr 45mins without commercials. They make it this long because they have to put a lot of commercials to be able to make them profitable) but since I live in the US now I feel the need of watching some. I am currently watching this particular one named "Ezel" in which there is a couple similar to Spike and Drusilla. The female character, which is on the right isn't exactly like Drusilla but the male character is the hopelessly romantic character Spike is. Similar to Spike he is a character who is not afraid of harming others to make, in this case, his wife happy and to spoil her with whatever gift he can get her, whether it be a $300,000 necklase or a nice car. As long as she is happy and stays with him he feels he can do anything and everything without being afraid; however he would be lost without her, doing something that could harm both himself and a lot people around him including the girl he claims to love.
This situation isn't something that is only on books. It also happens quite often in real life. Just a couple of weeks ago in our Business Computing class we read about a man killing his wife because she changed her facebook status to single.
I for some reason find this a little different than love. It is more of an addiction. Some men, such as Spike or Cengiz in my Turkish TV series want to unreasonably care for and spoil a certain woman without caring at all for others and when they notice they are not successful they lose it.
I put Micheal Corleone's picture with his Italian wife Apollonia because he also is a male who feels the same needs; however he is a bit more serious and smarter a guy compared to the other two to make the same mistakes they would potentially make. He does have the same tendency to spoil her though and she, because of this, dies by a bomb planted in the car.
This is more of a male character analysis but I just find this interesting that some men want to irrationally and unreasonably love and spoil someone to the point where it is unhealthy for all.
