After talking to each other they instantly kiss and fall in love. When Romeo and Juliet fall in love, you should get to know the person, but Romeo and Juliet only had a conversation during a party. In truth, both Romeo and Juliet don’t even know each other 's identity. Juliet had asked her nurse to “Go ask his name-if he is married, my grave is like to be my wedding bed. (1.5,134-135)” Juliet had already fallen for him but didn’t even know that he was a Montague, her enemy.

We live in a society that has increasingly demoralizes love, depicting it as cruel, superficial and full of complications. Nowadays it is easy for people to claim that they are in love, even when their actions say otherwise, and it is just as easy to claim that they are not when they indeed are. Real love is difficult to find and keeping it alive is even harder, especially when one must overcome their own anxieties and uncertainties to embrace its presence. This is the main theme depicted in Russell Banks’ short story “Sarah Cole: A Type of Love Story,” as well as in Richard Bausch’s “The Fireman’s Wife.” These narratives, although similar in some ways, are completely different types of love stories. “Sarah Cole: A Type of Love Story” is the tale of a young, handsome man who has an affair with, and ends up falling for, “the homeliest woman he has ever seen” but refuses to admit to others and himself that he loves her.
Sally was beaten by her father earlier in the book and left Esperanza alone at the fair when a big boy came and took Sally.

She says “She is happy, except sometimes her husband gets angry… though most days he is okay.
The relationship most obviously based on a fear of intimacy is that of Tom and Daisy. Men and women who fear intimacy find ways to do so by engaging in infidelity as a means of hurting their partner, but less obviously, as a means to hurt themselves. This idea is well elaborated by Kristeva: “People who are threatened by intimacy and sexuality … are unable to consummate an intimate relationship and flee into promiscuity. They, also, retreat into being little boys or little girls in the face of an adult sexual relationship, because they are too guilty to consummate the relationship… Intimacy is avoided by choosing unavailable people or by pushing people away when they become too close” (Kriteva). When the readers are first introduced to Tom,
That was when she found her two hundred dollars was gone” (Hurston 118). Janie had so quickly fallen for Tea Cake and because of her past with Joe, being abused, trusting that Tea Cake would return and have her money was difficult for her to wrap her brain around. In Janie’s past relationships, the men would not let her do any of the normal labor built for a man. She is to stay in the house and do what women were expected to do, clean and cook. Janie is eager to help outside and Tea Cake is the first guy to let her do so.
While Tom and Daisy at least try to appear happy and loving, Myrtle and George are hardly identifiable as married. Myrtle has lost complete interest in George and any life that she has with him, and runs off with Tom to live the extravagant life that she’s always wanted. Even before George and Myrtle were married, Myrtle’s understanding was that George was wealthy and powerful. Upon finding out that he didn’t have everything that she dreamed of, she stopped being in love with the idea of being with George, leading to an affair with Tom years later. “She smiled slowly and walking through her husband as if he were a ghost and shook hands with Tom, looking him flush in the eye.” We can see the disinterest she has for George by comparing her attraction towards Tom.
David feels relieved that Hella is coming back and that when she marries him he won’t have to deal with his true self or Giovanni much longer. David doesn’t even love Hella. She’s a part of the mask he’s hiding behind; their relationship is a lie. Immediately after reading this letter David sleeps with a woman named Sue almost to convince himself that he is society’s “normal” straight individual. He compares having sex with Sue as “a job which it was necessary to do in an unforgettable manner” (Baldwin 100).
In the Miller’s Tale, an old carpenter named Robin marries an 18 year-old woman named Alison. Rightfully, he is fearful that she is cheating on him with a young scholar named Nicholas.

Juliet’s relationship with her dad is slim to none and has Mr. Capulet guessing what she is like and he makes all decisions for her without even knowing what's going on in her life. Mr. Capulet is the most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death because he didn't respect Juliet’s thoughts , he was selfish, and he kept the feud going between the families. Social status. That's all Mr. Capulet was thinking about when he arranged the marriage between Juliet and Paris. When the two families were on good terms with the Prince Mr. Capulet thought “She hath not seen the change of fourteen years, Let two more summers wither in their pride, pass by Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride.” When the Prince is
Then in the play the girl in yellow in the play, “it was graduation nite &I was the only virgin in crowd bobby mills martin jerome & sammy yates eddie jones & randi all cousins all the prettiest niggers in the factory town carried me out wit em.”(7) She reminders me of Mary 1 because she say she’s a virgin and is taking on that role but she acts like a hoe. -It has the lady red being in love with a man that is not in love with her. This reminded me of when Maggie was in love with Brick but he didn’t love her back. -I lady in yellow was dealing with DJ who was trying to discover what his true sexuality was like Maggie dealing with Brick the only difference was she didn’t get an
During the day, the wallpaper makes very little “movement”; it is almost as if the shadowy figure is being still and silent. The figures movements represent the protagonists movements, during the day she is prim and proper, trying to make her husband believe she is doing exactly what he wants by “sleeping”; at night the woman is alive, trying to discover herself and the things that she likes, realizing how trapped she is against her husband’s wishes, trying to break free from the bars that are holding her back. One can see the negative effects of John’s (and society’s) treatment of the narrator in her response to the rest cure. At first, she tries to fight against the growing lethargy that controls her. She even challenges John’s treatment
An example from the play of when the father figure was a significant role in his daughters’ relationship, is when upon arrival after fighting in the war, the locals host a masked party that night. Count Claudio had already set his eyes upon a pretty woman named Hero, but to make sure he could marry Hero, he had to ask for permission from Hero’s dad (Leonato). Also there was another example of this in the play was when Benedick and Beatrice finally fall in love (after a fair bit of being misled), and seeing as Beatrice’s parents weren’t talked about or even shown in the play, Benedick could only ask Leonato for permission to marry her, who is Beatrice’s
