They do not like each other at the beginning, they argue a lot and are really sassy towards each other.
Even after they profess their love to each other, Beatrice and Benedick remain in competition to protect their egos. At the wedding, they claim not to love each other until Hero and Claudio expose the love letters they had written but never sent. They then give in and decide to be married, yet they are not rid of the prideful patterns that may later threaten their relationship. If they are still unable to healthily express their love for each other, is that love strong enough to endure the hardships of a lifetime together? Another effect of her emotional suppression is the outburst Beatrice has in Act 4.
Evidence of Emma’s lack of objectivity appeared at the beginning of the movie when she marries Dr. Bovary even though she know nothing about him, and marries him because it seems romantic. This does not satisfy her because she soon realizes that her marriage is anything but a romance novel, but is a practical. Although Emma’s husband is pleases with their marriage and to the outside world Emma should be happy, she is disappointed and board. Emma feels dissatisfied by her new life, because, due to her inability to get past childhood expectations, she always expected marriage to lead her to romantic bliss; instead, she feels that her life has fallen short of the high expectations she received from books. Her marriage does not match her naively romantic expectations, and she lapses into a state of boredom and restlessness.

Aylmer and Georgiana’s relationship has the ingredients to be great because they did love each other, but when he’s concentrating on fixing her and she’s worrying about pleasing him, it destroys their love and eventually leads to her demise. Which sadly makes the common saying that “Love conquers all” an untrue statement, because it couldn’t conquer a man’s obsession with an imperfection. Works Cited: Hawthorne, Nathaniel.

What this says is that reality is basically in the eye of the beholder meaning what is seen and what is heard is very personal and varies greatly from person to person. One example of this is during the breakup of the couple, the "Would be Lover", may disagree about whether an explicit message of rejection was delivered and therefore persist in their advances towards the rejector who views these actions as inappropriate, irrational and/or obnoxious(p. 380). In this case the "Would be Lover" doesn't interpret the message given as rejection, possibly because from her point of view the relationship is strong and heading in a positive direction with the affections being mutual, therefore when the advances continue the "Rejector" sees them as inappropriate and irrational because he does not take into account the broad contrast in views. Another instance in the relationship involving the construction of reality is the issue of attraction.
