Stump comes to this view by first dissecting the relational, volitional and responsiveness accounts of love. Stump uses the example of Dante Alighieri and Beatrice as proof that the relational account for love is flawed. According to the relational account, Dante Alighieri did not love Beatrice because he had no real relationship with her and only admired her from afar. This unbelievable for Stump, as she believes Dante clearly had strong feelings for Beatrice that are not being measured or acknowledged by the relational account (Stump, 2006). Stump then shifts her focus on the main problem with the volitional account, which is that there is no reason assigned to loving someone.

Conversely, through his ability to listen and express emotions, Robert forms a deeper connection – one nonexistent in the narrator’s marriage – with both his and the narrator’s wife. Robert and Beulah have a relationship that the narrator cannot at all understand. In fact, the narrator pities both of them, feeling “sorry for the blind man” for not knowing how Beulah looks and “thinking what a pitiful life [Beulah] must have led” (Carver 213). The narrator perceives love as literal, fed by physical beauty and not emotion, whereas Robert and Beulah prove the opposite, that love is fed by something deeper. The narrator’s primary thought involves whether Beulah could “wear makeup or not,” highlighting his materialistic concept of love (Carver 213).
(Shakespeare 30) Juliet is obligated to regard Romeo as her “only hate.” He is a “Montague” and that categorizes him as her “greatest enemy.” Nevertheless, Juliet still identifies him as her “only love.” This represents true love because she is willing to go against her obligations to love someone her family despises.
John “had recently married a wife whom he loved more than his life” (Chaucer, “The Miller’s Tale” 35-36). Since this carpenter is the most sentimentally involved with Alisoun, he ends up the most betrayed and embarrassed by her disloyalty. Conversely, Alisoun doesn’t give Absolom any reassurance that his infatuation is requited, so he does not fall into the trap of falling for her. Consequently, Absolom leaves the situation feeling rejected, but not truly dejected because his connection with Alisoun was only in his dreams. Meanwhile, Nicholas begs her for sex by yelling “sweetheart, love me right away or I’ll die, so help me God!”

“Beteem” implicits that Hermia is allowing her tears to flow, because she wants to show how inconsolable she is not going to be marrying Lysander. Furthermore, it shows that how Hermia and Lysander’s love is extremely vehement and they love each other, because Hermia is allowing her tears to drip and not wipe them to show how much Hermia loves Lysander and that Hermia is forced to marry Demetrius.

Because of this, she’s expected to love him no matter what. The reasons stated within the passage would make no sense to any ordinary person, and would not be recognized as reasons to love someone. “She loved him for the way he sat loosely in a chair, for the way he came in a door, or moved slowly across the room with long strides. She loved the intent, far look in his eyes when they rested on her, the funny shape of the mouth”(pg 2). In order to justify her servitude to him, she unconsciously attempted to look for valid reasons to love him, which didn’t exist, which resulted in these inadequate
Fake Love There is a difference between love and infatuation. In the Play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo claims Juliet is the woman he is helplessly in love with and is destined to be with. Although he may think that he loves her, his desire is captivated by her looks. Throughout the play, it becomes more obvious through Romeo's words, history, and knowledge that he does not know the loyalty of love. “Young men’s love then lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (Act 2, Scene 3, Lines 67-68)
