Overcoming Marital Conflict Marriages are made, not in heaven, but by wonderfully fallible human beings who hope for the best, but who often do precious little to make this most challenging and complicated relationship work. From the very first couple and their differing view point over the apple to modern times, men and women have always disagreed. Both sexes are born with inherently different personality traits. Although mankind knows they will never see eye to eye with the opposite; they still are attracted to them, perhaps for that very reason. Unfortunately it also means there will be unavoidable conflict in the union of a woman and man.
Shakespeare has used a verbose style to match Beatrice's character. As a conclusion, Beatrice and Benedick have changed both in their attitudes towards the idea of marriage and towards each other since the beginning of the play. However, one must note that they will never get bored of each other while they are having their 'war' so they are definitely a good match. Personally I think that Shakespeare is a feminist is much ado about nothing.
Through their hands they have proclaimed their love by the action of writing a poem, this is proof that they mean what they say. Beatrice and Benedick are echoing each other's sentiments 'they swore that you were almost sick for me', ' they swore you were wellnigh dead for me.' This reflect the harmony that they now share, she is no longer the 'infernal Ate in good apparel.' When Benedick stops her mouth with kiss some critics may argue that now she has submitted her will and will no longer talk out of turn in my opinion it symbolises the end of their 'merry war' and the start of their marriage because of the harmony that has been revealed in their last sentiments.

He points out two very important negative factors that men and women often use, "Men mistakenly offer solutions and invalidate feelings while women offer unsolicited advice and direction" (Gray 17, 21).

As Dr. John Gray explains, "These differences can come between the sexes and prohibit mutually fulfilling loving relationships" (Gray 263). After reading the book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, the relationships with my girlfriend have improved dramatically.
The difference between Beatrice,Benedick,and the other two Claudio and Hero though is that, these two are very headstrong characters with a different outlook on love, but have very much love for one another. Benedick believes in just being a bachelor and spending the rest of his life messing with as many women as he pleases, well as for Beatrice she believes there is no man good enough and willing to show her the love she wants so she much rather be left alone. But the fact that they honestly want to believe what they say is what makes this get way more interesting. What they don’t know is that they are going to soon become curious trying to figure out what they truly feel for one
Throughout the play Beatrice and Benadick are constantly insulting eachother. However, they eventually both confess their love for eachother. Beatrice says “I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest” (4.1.279-280). The fact that they took s long to confess their love shows us that their love is more genuine. It also shows that they are slightly scared of love especially since earlier in the play Benadick talked about how he never wanted to marry (1.1) The other main couple in the play is Claudio and Hero.
In William Shakespeare 's comedy "Much Ado About Nothing", the characters Beatrice and Benedick are involved in what could only be called a "love/hate" relationship. The play is a classic example of this type of relationship, and allows us to view one from the outside looking in. Both Beatrice and Benedick are strong-willed, intelligent characters, who fear that falling in love will lead to a loss of freedom and eventually heartbreak. This causes them to deny their love for each other and it is only through the machinations of other characters in the play that their true feelings emerge. When these feelings are finally acknowledged, both characters are changed, but the changes are subtle.
Claudio could be faking his love and want for Hero but he see the qualities in her to make decent wife. Claudio told Leonato that he is ready to marry her only after their first meeting and then proceeds to ask Leonato for her hand in marriage. One of the negatives of love at first sight is you don't know anything about the other person, you might jump into situat... ... middle of paper ... ...atrice tells him ‘I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest’. This is a wonderful contrast to all the deception it has taken to bring them together with a relationship that will not fail. Looking at the play, Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare makes the point that true love is achieved with understanding, trust, and commitment by examining the relationships of the contrasting sets of lovers: the love at first sight kind of relationship of Hero and Claudio, and the deeper relationship of Beatrice and Benedick.Claudio and Hero’s relationship has at this point in the play disintegrated due to deception and an innate lack of trust.
Their love seems to start pure enough, for as pure as a love built on a deception can be, for in the beginning it does seem that Desdemona and Othello truly love each other. 'She loved me for the dangers I had passed and I loved her that she did pity them. '2 However, as in the nature of tragedies, this period of happy love cannot last. Not long after the start of their marriage, between Iago 's meddling and ulterior motives and Othello 's own deeply ingrained jealousy and fear starts to cause problems. While solely not to blame for the eventual culmination of the play, Othello 's issues regarding his wife and her virtue and his willingness to believe Iago and his poison over his wife and her clear devotion to Othello, his actions towards the end do call into question the depth and trueness of Othello 's love for his wife.
He starts out as a man who would do anything for the woman he desperately loves. It is obvious that the couple is infatuated with each other and that neither partner would ever commit such a crime as being unfaithful. But, once spiteful Iago plants the lie and rumor, Othello changes. Love has changed him for the worse because in the end, Othello trusted his “honest, best friend,” over his wife. It would seem that there might have been trust issues in the beginning of the lovers’ relationship because Othello changed his mind about Desdemona quite quickly.
