Some would argue that love conquers all and that the lack of trust should not dissolve a marriage. However, that is not the case in Othello’s marriage and in most marriages worldwide. When their trust was broken, Othello turned against Desdemona and was unable to see her as the person he once married. In the beginning of the play Othello tells Iago Desdemona had became” [his] soul’s joy,” since they met and believes their marriage will last (II.I.200). Even though Othello believe Desdemona would be loyal to him because,” she had eyes and chose [him]” they still hadn’t been married for a long time when their trust was tested (III.III.194).However, when
Friar Lawrence irresponsibly married Romeo and Juliet after the naïve couple only knew each other for 24 hours. Friar Lawrence’s irresponsible nature involved: hiding the marriage from the feuding families, advising Juliet to fake her death, along with abandoning suicidal Juliet when she needed guidance and adult supervision. All of these poor decisions resulted to the suicide of Romeo and Juliet. When one thinks of the title Friar, the title itself is a title of higher expectations. As a Friar, Friar Lawrence does not use his ability and skills wisely to marry the madly in love couple.
It is crude, contains much swearing, a lot of scenes are nonsense or absurd. Taking another perspective, it perfectly reflects Polish culture in many aspects, and once it is recognized, it might not be so easy to laugh anymore, as it is thoughtful but tragic at the same time. The movie both originates in our culture, but also to a degree creates it. It is common among educated people to sometimes talk using quotes from the movie, be it a joke or a serious talk. Adas Miauczynski, the main character, cannot deal with his everyday life.
A very important fact is that Biff felt betrayed and did not finish college because he found his father having an affair with another woman, so he did not retake math to spite his father. He could not believe that his father would betray Linda in such a way. Willy attempts to excuse his behavior by telling Biff, “She’s nothing to me, Biff. I was lonely, I was terribly lonely,” (Miller
Transitioning to Act Three we see a side of Elizabeth that wouldn’t expect which would be dishonesty to save John from his death. Elizabeth being known through Salem for never telling a lie, is asked to tell the truth about John committing adultery so they can both be free. “I came to think he fancied her. And so one night I lost my wits I think, and put out on the highroad,” (1148). From that quote she broke her streak of honesty because she couldn’t tell if John wanted her to tell the truth, so she lied to court about John not being a lecher.
However, Iago is not the only one that is to take all the blame. Othello’s naive nature hindered him from seeking the truth of Desdemona and Cassio and finding out Iago had been lying the whole time. Iago may have been the cause of rumors, however Othello’s own doing ultimately caused him to suffer the consequences due to the fact that he did not communicate with his wife. He let a envious person control every aspect of his perception of his wife. He let a piece of fabric be the defining factor of whether or not his wife was faithful to him.
In this moment, Hester is experiencing a lot of guilt. Not only she is being shamed for getting pregnant with a man who is not her husband, but she just finds out that her husband who has not been seen in years is alive.

By taking the blame, Chillingworth assumes no consequence because no one
Although the typical representation of PTSD in movies can often alienate viewers, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is an exception, because Charlie’s flashbacks allow us to be empathetic to his situation, normalizing the stigma around suicidal-depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder develops in some people who have gone through distressing, dangerous, or startling events. According to Psychology Today, the symptoms of the disorder can range from mild to severe, but often include flashbacks to the event, nightmares, and or stressful thoughts. Furthermore, sexual assault accounts for the highest PTSD rates in both men and women, yet on screen, it is normally depicted as a war-driven disorder. In the film, Charlie suffers from PTSD due
According to Shakespeare (ii.i 292-295) “Here, Claudio, I have wooed in thy name, and fair Hero is won. I have broke with her father and his goodwill obtained. Name the day of marriage, and God give thee joy.” This quote shows that Don Pedro is the one who helped Claudio to apparently win Hero’s heart. Claudio couldn’t do it himself because he is immature like a kid. Last but not least, they didn’t communicate with each other.
With this quote, the teenage brain makes choices with consequences, look for new sensations, and seek out social and emotional information. During the second scene of Act II, Romeo and Juliet make the decision to marry each other hours after meeting at the Capulet party. Romeo seeks out Friar Lawrence to ask, “but this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today” (Shakespeare 410). Here Romeo is asking Friar Lawrence to marry them that same day, even though he and Juliet met the night before. Both the audience and Friar Lawrence are surprised by this, as only twenty four hours earlier Romeo was in love with Rosaline and depressed that she did not love him back.
