What is an ideal couple? Many would say it 's two people who love each other trust each other and care for one another. Others might even say that an ideal couple are just two people who love each other. In the book “Much Ado About Nothing” written by William Shakespeare has love, comedy, and trickery. The characters Beatrice and Benedick have the same point of view on love, Beatrice says that she will never get married and live a bachelorette forever and Signior Benedick says he will die a bachelor. Beatrice shows her disdain for men when she explains, “A dear happiness to women. They would have else been troubled with a pernicious suitor. I thank god and my cold blood I am your humor for that.

Beatrice thanks god for how cold and witty her personality is. Beatrice knows that her and Signior Benedick have the exact same personality and points of view on love. Beatrice doesn 't find it exciting when a man confesses his love for a women, she would much rather hear her dog bark at a crow. Benedick also thinks the same way as Beatrice.

He tells this to Signior Benedick when he tells Claudio that he doesn’t see what Claudio sees in her.
