How does Flaubert criticize the institution of family and marriage in Madame Bovary? I need to write an essay and was also wondering if these were good points to talk about.

1. Emma's childhood and the education of girls sets them up for disappointment in marriage because their prince charming is not real

2. The restrictions society places on women forces them to turn to corrupt things to gain power and it forces them to neglect their children or try to live through them

3.It is not Emma's fault that she turned out this way as she could only get power through adultery. She was controlled by her vision of fantasy and it led to her disappointment along with what society expected from her.
