One of the themes in The Great Gatsby is jealousy. Ever since the world started, money has caused problems increasing people envy towards each other. Money causes people to be jealous, envious, and greedy. People will try so hard to achieve a goal that they've seen someone else achieve, and then in the end be left in misery. Daisy and Tom don't have a good marriage; leaving Daisy in misery. She is jealous of Myrtle, who Tom is seeing as his mistress. Jealousy is never something to be proud of, and causes many self problems and just problems in general.
