We are not each other’s, anymore. Instead, I am his.” (pg 191) This doubt is overtaken by her love for him, as it should in all sturdy relationships.

The most glaring examples of this are his pet names for her. He likes to think of her as a small, delicate creature that needs saving and protecting. Although this may seem like normal fare for a loving marriage, he takes it too far. Nora is not the type of woman that appreciates this sort of treatment, so it turns from affectionate to demeaning. He thinks that demeaning his wife is not only acceptable, but normal for a relationship saying “I wouldn’t be a man if your feminine vulnerability didn’t make you doubly attractive to me”(82).

Therefore, talking is not always the best way to hold each other, but thinking about how to be comfortable with a partner is always preferable.

The slightly astonished Elizabeth immediately recognizes how much the tone and motive in his second proposal have changed from his first and also reveals her love for him. Mr. Darcy’s two proposals do not simply act as means to communicating his feeling to Elizabeth, but as a documentation of his significant change in
She fell in love with him because of his stories, and the hardships that he went through. Saw him as this mature older man that has experienced what life has to offer, and thought that he’s handled it well. “She loved me for the dangers I had past/ And I loved her that she did pity them” (1.3.166-167). Othello sees her as this innocent, inexperienced woman that shows compassion towards him, when he believes that he doesn’t deserve it. Desdemona’s perception of herself is that she’s a loving and faithful wife, and she even wonders how any wife could cheat on her husband, reaffirming her naiveté.
Being married caused her independence to be put on hold because, Janie was forced to wait hand and foot on men she did not love.
