The passage above reveals part of Jane and Mr. Rochester’s argument, where Rochester attempts to convince Jane to stay in Thornfield and become his wife; however, Jane feels it is necessary to leave since Rochester is still married and does not want to be treated as an inferior to Rochester. Brontë expresses that women and men are inherently equal through Jane’s statement with a critical tone and rhetorical questions; this theme further echoed throughout the novel. At this point in the novel, Jane was reluctant to leave Rochester, but was upset and felt it was inappropriate to marry a married man, no matter what state Rochester’s wife was in. Thus, throughout the excerpt Jane is critical and condemning how Rochester views her. She is not an emotionless being who wants to leave him, instead she feels obliged to do so because she does not want to become a mistress.

Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
The second example of irony in the short story Winter Dreams is when Judy tells Dexter before he leaves for the war that she wanted to marry him. But when Dexter left, she ended up marrying another guy. This is an example of dramatic irony because it is understood because it is understood by audience reading, but the character still does not understand. The third and last example of irony in the short story Winter Dreams is at the end of the story when Dexter leaves Irene to be with Judy again, but in the end Judy backs stabs him again. This would be an example of situational irony because they situation turned out the opposite than what it should
Even if he would have not kept his and Juliet's relationship a secret the outcome would have been better. His own personal desire worked heavily against him.

The Friar realized how foolish it was, but the only reason he married them was because he thought there was a possibility of this helping to end the feud between their families.
As well as this, Romeo and Juliet conclude that they crave to receive marriage even though they only know each other for less than twenty four hours. When Romeo requests to marry Juliet, she realizes “It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden” (2.2.125). Regarding this, most people obtain marriage after years of knowing each other, but the insane lovers agree to get married after a day of experiencing each other with some convincing to Juliet. Even though they perceive their love as true, they have not acquired enough information to claim that they love each other. While planning for their wedding, the lovers plan to not notify their families of their new love and marriage because their families are sworn enemies.

He expects Daisy to stop her affair on the merit of his “love” for her. This expectation is hypocritical as he himself has taken part in multiple affairs during his marriage, yet expects Daisy to adhere to traditional family values. For instance in chapter 7 he says, “Nowadays people begin by sneering at family life and family institutions, and next they'll throw everything overboard and have intermarriage between black and white." though this statement is outdated in today’s

Bathsheba and David soon conceived a second son, Solomon. The story doesn’t say if Bathsheba seduced David, then that would be a case of femme fatale, but for what I have read David is the one who fell in love with her at first sight and send for her.

But Bathsheba still gets blamed for David’s misery although she was just a women that did not intentionally try to get with David.
