"He borrowed somebody's best suit to get married in , and never told me about it , and the man came after it one day wen he was out. [...] I it to him and then I lay down and …cried [...] all afternoon."
Myrtle Wilson is Gatsby's secret mistress and George Wilson is Myrtle's actual wife. George and Myrtle live in the valley of ashes. George Wilson shoots Gatsby because he thin…ks that Myrtle cheated on him with Gatsby.
(They have an affair with each other. this book was so boring but I'm pretty sure that's what it was.) NO. George and Myrtle Wilson are married. Myrtle is cheating on George… with Tom, who merely uses her as an object. Myrtle is run over at the end of the novel, George goes crazy, then kills both Gatsby and himself.
Myrtle is tom's lover and George Wilson is Myrtle's husband.
Wilson assumed that who ever was driving the yellow car was Myrtle's affair and the one who killed her. He believed Gatsby was the one who did it because Tom told him that Gat…sby was the owner of the yellow car.
"Daisy!Daisy!Daisy!" Shouted Mrs. Wilson. "I'll say it whenever I want to! Daisy! Dai-" ...And then Tom punches her. (That's not a quote, it's what happens)
From the book The Great Gatsby, it is not evident how George and Myrtle met. The only mention of the incident was that Myrtle thought George was well dressed and a gentlem…an.
Myrtyle was the lover of Tom Buchanan. George Wilson was her lifeless husband. Myrtle is killed by the car that Daisy was driving. George shoots Jay Gatsby at the end of the …novel and commits suicide.

Tom Buchanan wants Nick to meet his mistress, Myrtle Wilson. Nick first meets Myrtle in her husband's auto shop. Tom tells Myrtle to take the next train so they can meet up in… the city. Tom, Nick, and Myrtle all meet up and they then proceed to walk around the city and later on go to Myrtle's sister's house.
Myrtle Wilson is Tom Buchanon's mistress.
She gets into a car accident, Daisy hits her but she leaves the blame on Gatsby then leaves town with her husband, Tom. At the end Wilson, myrtle's husband kills Gatsby thinki…ng he killed his wife.
After finding the expensive dog collar which Tom bought Myrtle, Wilson becomes aware that Myrtle is having an affair. He knows it must be a wealthy man, but does not know who.… After Myrtles death he searches for the man, and stops by at Toms house. Tom then tells Wilson that it was Gatsby who killed her, and Wilson naturally combines these pieces of information and concludes that Gatsby had the affair with Myrtle and then killed her deliberately when he was finished with her. Of course Daisy was driving the car, not Gatsby, but neither Tom nor Wilson was aware of this. So in short, Tom allowed Wilson to believe that Gatsby had an affair with Myrtle.
