The Great Gatsby

what is the significance of this quote "...his presumptuous flirtation is over."

ch 7. Some answered this, but it was just an immature answer trying to be funny. Can anyone else help?

The significance of this line is the fact that Tom is seemingly forgiving Daisy for anything she's done. Is he presumptuous in believing that the relationship between Gatsby and his wife is over? Or should we simply come to understand that he really doesn't care.
