Chopin?s ?The Storm? leads us to believe that a sexually unfulfilled housewife or husband will eventually find sexual gratification somewhere else. That if people are not honest with their true feelings then somehow, somewhere their hidden intentions will become inevitable. Chopin reinforces this by Calixta and Alcee sudden and unintended passionate affair. Unfortunately, affairs are like things done in the dark of night, eventually the light of the day will shine. In Chopin?s story she portrayed the affair of Calixta and Alcee as being beneficial to their respective marriages, but no matter how understanding a person can be, the confession or the knowledge of an affair, the betrayal of such sacred trust, is usually devastating to a marriage.

Take for instance, that an unattached man can have sex with different women and it is socially acceptable, yet if an unattached woman has sex with several different men, she is considered a slut.
