John, an older carpenter, with a young wife, is at the center of “The Miller’s Tale.” Chaucer mocks John for marrying a younger woman and the fact that their relationship does not follow the rules of courtly love.

Othello and Desdemona claimed that fell in love at the very first sight of each other. They had mistaken that breathtaking moment that left butterflies in their stomach with love but truthfully it was infatuation.
