People usually cohabitate because they either believe they are not ready for marriage or couples simply don’t believe in it. In the essay “I Wish They’d Do It Right” by Jane Doe, we are presented with Doe’s real life experience about her son cohabitating. Doe’s son and his girlfriend have been living together for seven years and finally have a kid, but they are not yet married. Doe assumes that the child will give them a reason to actually get married, however they tell her that they don’t believe in marriage. Doe essentially objects to their decision of not getting married because she doesn’t want her grandchild to go through any inconveniences or embarrassments by his peers.
“We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.” This quote is by Jesse Owens. It very precisely associates with the book “The Flip Side” by Shawn Johnson, because of the way a young girl who desires to be an Olympic gymnast dedicates herself and makes unbending sacrifices to succeed. If you ever imagined working hard for something, Charlotte(Charlie) Ryland multiplied your efforts by a million. She had a mental picture of what she wanted to accomplish and because of the determination she had, she followed it through during the book, and did everything she could even when she had to conquer some weighty hurdles.
The answers to her prayers came in the form of Tea Cake, a young man twelve years her junior who was a little infamous amongst the townspeople for his mischievous antics. Tea Cake loves Janie genuinely, and doesn’t try to keep her from being who she wants to be. Although he dies before he and Janie are able to spend many years together, marrying him has an effect on Janie that causes her to forget her past grievances, and consider herself as an independent person like she always hoped to be. After Tea Cake, Janie is a free woman in that she is no longer under the oppressive restraints that she once allowed to hold her back from a life she considers worth living. The exploration of gender roles and the plight of women in Hurston’s novel continues to be relevant in today’s world, despite the fact that Their Eyes Were Watching God is now 79 years old.
Not with no handcuffs on”. Charlie manifestly wishes for another chance to see his mother. Regardless, when sibling argue and blame they usually realize that it won't get them anywhere and they won't make them any happier.

Alejandra was defined by her actions, such as when she refused to elope with John Grady in favor of remaining dedicated to her family. She shouldn't be defined by her words because she often bragged about her rebellious spirit, but didn't back it up with action. Though Alejandra was constantly manipulated by her grand aunt, who kept her wayward actions in check, she remained dedicated to her and to her father. This allegiance to her family eventually became her weakness, as she abandoned John Grady to follow her aunt's wishes, leaving behind a man she wanted to be with in order to maintain good relations with her kin. She was also made weak by her curious spirit; her relationship with the American, John Grady, threatened her relationship with her family.
So she convinces Atticus to tell Jem and scout to live up to their names of the Finches. Scout does not believe her father would say this and cries. She does not want to remember it and she does not want to act the way her aunt wants her to. Atticus then realizes that this is not who he is and says, “Forget it”(179). This shows that no matter what anyone says, Atticus will let Scout be who she wants to be.
She thinks this because Creon makes Antigone marry Haemon, Creon’s brother but she refuses. She always thought of being a mother and a wife but she refuses to marry Haemon because it is something that Creon wants her to do. “One husband gone, i might have found another, or a child from a new man in the first child’s place; but with my parents covered up in death, no brother for me, ever, could be born” (lines 905-915). Like I said before she doesn’t care is she buried her brother or if there is such laws that tell her not too. But she gave up to be a mother or to have children for her
Despite placing the blame for this situation on Lysander, saying that it was with cunning that he "flinch'd my daughter's heart, turn'd her obedience...to stubborn harshness"(line 37,38) and that he "bewitched the bosom of my child" (line 28), Egeus does not suggest that any punishment should be put forth for Lysander for interfering with the planned marriage. This could be that because Lysander is not part of Egeus' family, Egeus does not have control over Lysander; it could also be that Egeus believes that a truly obedient daughter would follow her father's command regardless of any other person's
Lomia says this to her son Cape after he begs her to come back and live with he and his father, following it up with a comment on her nightmares of being a widow. Disregarding the state of her husband’s health, she cares only about how she will be regarded when she becomes a widow, and so, the only way to save herself is simply to not come back. This showcases the way Lomia consistently puts herself before others, caring only for her own feelings. Perhaps, she is more afraid of the feelings that will come with losing her husband than she is of her status as widow, therefore avoiding the situation in its entirety seems to be the only viable option. Later, in the same conversation, Lomia admits to Cape that she does not feel things; “I want to, I try to feel things -- I hate it in here, in this -- thick -- pitch -- everything I do, I do to get OUT (Thompson, pg.
The Nurse believes that Juliet is not fully grown to be married as she said “She’s not fourteen” (18). Her age has proven that she’s not mature enough to become a wife and indeed that she won’t be able to act or talk like an adult. And because at such young age, 13, it’s obvious to the maid of house Capulet to act innocent, especially in her response during the conversation about her marriage. Juliet replied to her mom obediently “I’ll look to like, if looking liking move” (Shakespeare 21) about the man that she’s going to marry without hesitation. She don’t even considered whether that man would be a good selection or not.
“Children will not abide any, the slightest, change in the accustomed aspect of things that are daily before their eyes.” (Hawthorne 189) When Hester is ready to drop the A, something that up until then she didn’t believe she could do, Pearl stops her. She has Hester put it back on when she wanted to get rid of it and finally be happy. Pearl stops Hester from attaining a freedom she hasn’t had in years. Pearl doesn’t do it because she really can’t recognize Hester she does it because she wants to leave Hester trapped.
