She is married to Johnny Foote, Hilly’s ex, who Hilly is obviously still not over with.

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.
Though the story of Romeo and Juliet is considered one of love, it is evident that the opposite is true based on the fact that they are strangers, they are dramatic, and rash. It is clear that throughout the play Romeo and Juliet have little to no knowledge about each other, therefore not only were they, strangers when they first met they remain strangers after. On the first day, that Romeo and Juliet meet they know nothing about each other or their situations as evidenced by this quote, “ ‘What is her mother?’ ‘Marry bachelor, her mother is the lady of the house...’ ‘Is she a Capulet? ...”
Indigo is rightfully upset about him coming to see her since she hasn’t heard from him in almost a year, but Bleek tries to reconcile with her.

This final act didn’t sit well with me at all. After all the hurt that Bleek had put Indigo through, not contacting her for so long after his injury and two-timing on her with Clarke, Indigo is relegated to being a wife to a negligent husband.
In the novel Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton, the main character, Ethan, is trapped in an unsatisfying life. He falls in love with his wife’s cousin and that leads to a depressing ending for everyone. But I understand that Edith Wharton had a tough time with marriage and love, and that reflects in her writing. There are countless situations that can keep two people from being together, every romance movie ever made has proven that fact and it is impossible to recount all the obstacles fictional people must face. However, the most popular are: a class difference, financial struggle, a third party (ie: love triangle), or what I like to call the Spider-Man/Mary Jane conflict, where the hero walks away from the girl because he believes their relationship would make her a target for supervillains.

Curley’s wife would not be a pleasant character in many ways. As a wife of manager’s son, she was described as a charming and flirty woman and treated others with scorn. However, her appearances later had shown actually she was just an immature, innocent and lonely woman who missed her chance to be a successful movie star in Hollywood and compelled to marry Curley. “If I’d went, I wouldn’t be livin’ like this, you bet” (Steinbeck 84) Accordingly, she felt unfair for her life and doesn’t want to get stuck on the ranch

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is the tragic tale of young love tainted by foolishness and shallow lust. At the same time, the underlying theme of the exploitation of religion exists for the duration of the play through unreliable characters. These characters, mainly Friar Lawrence, Romeo, and Juliet, are not held accountable for their negligence because they find excuses in their religion. As a reader, I diverged from my presumption of religion as an undeniable good because the characters’ irresponsibility, stemming from religion, impacted the course of events in the play.
