What does Tom Buy for Myrtle on the way to the apartment?

Myrtle herself buys the other things. The only Tom has given her is the puppy and pays for the apartment in the city, where the two of them meet for their affair. This apartment is where they have the party and Tom ends up breaking Myrtle's nose. Nick is introduced to all of this in chapter two.

Why does Tom not leave Daisy to marry Myrtle?

While gossiping with Nick about Gatsby, Catherine tells Nick about Tom's relationship with Myrtle. She tells Nick that Tom actually wants to leave his wife, but that he cannot because of her religion. According to Catherine she is Catholic. “She's a Catholic, and they don't believe in divorce.”
