Meet The Simpsons - Marge Simpson

Source: 20th Century Fox

Behind every great man stands a woman. MARGE SIMPSON just got caught standing in the wrong line. Marge is the emotional center of the family, the sweet, sweet jelly in the Simpson donut. As such, she is unaccountably understanding, relentlessly upbeat, and alarminglysupportive. Her extraordinary homemaking skills work miracles. She can turn old chicken bones into necklaces, leftovers into casseroles, and an invasion of fire ants into an educational and entertaining insect circus.

Though Homer is self-centered, forgets birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays (both religious and secular), chews with his mouth open, gambles, and hangs out at Moe’s Tavern with a bunch of seedy lowlifes, Marge sticks with him. It must be love. And besides that, Homer desperatelyneeds her, deeply loves her, and does his utmost to give her everything she needs, on those few occasions when he’s not thinking of himself. In the face of Homer’s countless screw-ups, Marge never gives up hope, drawing sustenance from her endless collection of words to live by (i.e. “Most women will tell you that you’re a fool to think you can change a man—but those women are quitters.”)

Marge may fear the unfamiliar, but her firm moral convictions have allowed her to overcome her need to conform. This has led to her singlehandedly championing crusades against the Springfield Monorail, foiling Mr. Burns’ run for governor, and briefly ending cartoon violence on “The Itchy & Scratchy Show” by founding S.N.U.H., Springfieldians for Nonviolence, Understanding, and Helping. But the bulk of her energy is given to caring for her family. An overwhelming task, for despite the love she feels for them, it wears her ragged. But as Marge would tell you, the Simpsons can’t be choosers.
