Apparently, past research that relates to issues mentioned in “No Name Woman” concurs with some ideas and perceptions of Kingston in many apparent ways. From the aforementioned essay, it is clearly established that women who indulge in destructive sex practices particularly in their marriages are alienated from the community (Cohen 235). By doing research, I was able to establish reasons as to why women particularly those that are alienated from their husbands end up sleeping with other men irrespective of the fact that they live in their husband’s house. Fundamentally, the basic reason as to why these women end up engaging in such practices as established in many articles is that; these women often have the urge to fulfil their sexual desires and cast loneliness. By engaging in sexual activities with other men. In Kingston’s essay for instance, Kingston’s aunt was alienated from her husband for a long time the fact that forced her to indulge in practices contrary to the culture of the people (**). Though no clear motivation of her pregnancy was established, the perception incorporated in the articles used in my research established the aforesaid.
Apparently, if Kingston’s story had happened in a different place; events would have dramatically twisted owing the fact that different people embrace different cultural traits. If such a case could have happened in the contemporary times in a place where abortion is legal for instance, this could have been rather a small issue of concern. Considering that the culture of people differs, it had to happen the way it happened. The story could have twisted owing the fact that people have differing views in matters regarding abortion and out-of-wedlock births. In some cultures, Kingston’s aunt could have been divorced, or even killed in some other cultures.
