She did not want to hear anybody’s opinions or advice, and she felt as if no one would ever want to marry her. Her relationship with her father, Baptista, was not strong either and she believed that he did not have any concern for her. Baptista sends Petruchio to Kate so that he could get to know her better, and when Petruchio came back, Baptista asked how Katherine reacted. He showed genuine care for her asking why she was so unhappy even though she was finally getting married, referring to her as his daughter. She overreacted and immediately screamed, “Call me your daughter?
When Shakespeare wrote Othello, women had few rights and little power in society. They had virtually no say in arranging their own marriages, and were expected to marry a suitor chosen by their father. Desdemona, however, despite proposals from various suitors and public discouragement, continues her pursuit of Othello, and marries him. Although she is "…bound [to her father] for life and education…" , she affirms her belief that she belongs with Othello, and has such great love for him, so much that "a heave interim shall support his absence" . Soon after their elopement, envious Iago convinces Othello that Desdemona has been unfaithful to him.
(I.i.75-76) and later treats her father in the most reprehensible manner, Cordelia denies Lear's unnatural request saying, "Sure, I shall never marry like my sisters/ To love my father all" (I.i.103-104). Her truthful refusal to proclaim total love for her father proves her to be the actual loving daughter but results in her banishment. From this first scene, the characters' alliances and allegiances are forged and all that follows is directly resultant. In Macbeth, Lady Macbeth must be evil in order to advance the plot. The strong love and bond between herself and Macbeth enables her to influence him and spur him to action.
As Janie had said, “’Tain’t dat Ah worries over Joe’s death, Phoeby. Ah jus’ loves dis freedom” (Hurston 93). Logan and Joe did not compliment Janie through marriage, because they did not truly love her (The Concept of Love and Marriage in Zora Neale Hurston 's Their Eyes Were Watching God). Due to Janie’s transformation in voice and independence over her first two marriages, she desired to have a loving marriage where she would be free to be
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.

Further more without Katherina getting married, Bianca would also never marry. Within a family the eldest daughter must be married off first and in this play turned out to be a bonus. “Her father keeps from all access of suitors and will not promise her to any man until her elder sister first be wed.” This is the main an... ... middle of paper ... .... She now obeys what is asked of her by Petruchio like such as when she is told to lecture the other wives about how to be a good wife, “Katherina, I charge thee, tell these headstrong women, what duty they do owe their lords and husbands.” Without arguing and saying a word against what is asked of her she gives her advice, “Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper, thy head, thy sovereign, one that cares for thee.” Women in the Elizabethan era were presented as very obedient to their husbands and respectful to them also. They had no power and no say, they were treated badly and nothing would be done to stop the behaviour. In modern society most women have as much say as the men, they are not expected to stay at home and clean etc, and instead they go to work as well.
Breaking Kate's Spirit in Taming of the Shrew In the play Taming of the Shrew, a man named Petruchio attempts to tame a mean spirited woman named Kate. Much to Kate's chagrin Petruchio convinces her father that Kate loves him so they will now be married. Through several maneuvers to try and squash Kate's pride, Petruchio is met with strong resistance at first when he finds she can equal him in verbal back and forth. The fact that Petruchio could match Kate surprises her as well. Eventually, Kate sarcastically gives in with her speech about the sun and moon on the way to her sister's wedding.
After all the fussing and yelling Katharina does to make Petruchio mad he goes to Baptista (Katharina's father) and asks for his daughter's hand in marriage. Baptista is shocked, but says yes. Katharina and Petruchio still become married although Katharina still does not like him. In the beginning their relationship was odd and it seemed that it was going to come to an end because Katharina was still a devilish person hitting, kicking, and telling Petruchio she hated him. Since Petruchio loved Katharina he decides he will stick and become a grouch so he can tame Katharina.
Lady Capulet responds, “Talk not to me, for I’ll not say a word… Do as thou wilt, for i have done with thee,” (3.5.214-215). It seems very likely that Lady Capulet herself had an arranged marriage with Juliet’s father, and it seems she went along with it obediently. Juliet did not have her mother’s support. Additionally, Juliet had fallen in love with Romeo and the two decided to get married. Lady Capulet, Juliet’s mother, was unaware of the secret marriage and also encouraged the feud between the Capulet’s and Montague’s, creating more tension in Romeo and Juliet’s secret marriage.
