This way of thinking is wrong, since people cannot be forced to fall in love, and it is one of the many problems with these required marriages. The lines between reality, falling in love naturally, and fiction, falling in love because of a romantic setting, are blurred until nearly everyone is deceived. This is exemplified as Carol contemplates the steps of falling in love and decides that “love required only the right conditions” to grow “like a geranium.” The young people in the 1950s that share Carol’s mindset forget that love cannot be forced to grow. It is not a plant that is dependent on the
That is the main reason why Edward and Sandra got married. He thought she was a stunning girl and had to get to know her through all the challenges. As said in the book, “Sandra didn't intend to be as beautiful as she was. It wasn't her desire to be loved by so many men-one would do fine” (page 77). Even thought she could have been snobby about her looks, and no one would have blamed her if she was.

By speaking for Christian, he isn’t helping him woo Roxanne at all. She isn’t falling in love with either of them. She is in love with a collaboration, a pure fantasy.

An understanding of the importance given to class and social structures during the Georgian era is essential when analysing the socio-historical context in the works of esteemed female author, Jane Austen. Her inherent distinction of class is said to be the main source of much of the comedy and irony that is present throughout her works. Society in England during Austen’s era was highly centred around the social lives of the landed gentry and this is thematised in many of her novels. The role of the author is to give existence to a certain social or political position within the narrative of any given text. Austen as an author focused solely on depicting the social lives of the upper middle class in Britain at the time.

Just spending one day with someone is not long enough for anyone to know if they want to marry someone. Thompson says “I was very sure that I was going to take whoever they thought was right for me” (Source B). In some parts of the world it is tradition for a child parents to arrange a marriage, and it is seen as bad if they go against their parents because parents are seen as wiser and know best.

For example, The Party takes control of marriage. Marriage is supposed to be a life decision that is between two significant others instead of having a higher power arrange a marriage. The Party chooses who you will marry “All marriages between Party members had to be approved by the committee” ( Orwell 37 ).

How would you have freedom if you can’t even choose your life partner that you spend the rest of your life with?
