The third love that never ends is of Edgar's love for both his wife Catherine and his daughter Cathy. Edgar lives simply to protect his daughter Cathy, while Heathcliff lives to destroy Edgar and all that he hates. They reconcile however and apparently fall in love with each other. After her death neither is quite the same. Catherine dies and with her Edgar and Heathcliff on all accounts die too. His love for his daughter is the same as his love for his wife's although perhaps not as passionate. As previously stated his love is a primitive and passionate one. At first with Cathy being forced into marrying Linton after several foolish mistakes on her part, it seems as though the vicious cycle has started all over again. He cares very deeply for her because he sees his wife in her. The first half is filled with hate, passionate love, and mass amounts of confusion. His love for his wife is the most natural form of love in the book.
