Though, they stayed the course saying, “Just don’t let every complaint turn to anger. Tolerance and respect.” This couple shows that love can last forever, and through caring for one another they have found that they wouldn’t want to spend their life with anyone else.

It is common knowledge that all stereotypes, both positive and negative, are detrimental to everyone’s self-esteem and confidence, but biases that are ingrained in society are hard to resolve. Often times, people gravitate toward those similar to them because of their bias, which only allows the cycle of ignorance to continue. This cycle of ignorance introduces negativity into the world and people are more likely to judge others and themselves too harshly. In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, he discusses how people’s feelings of superiority over others only allow stereotypes to remain. Steinbeck’s story follows two migrant workers, George and Lennie, as they try to make a living during the Great Depression.

Due to this, women were often seen as ‘threatening’ to men.

The conditions of Petruchio and Katherine’s marriage was more “traditional” in the sense that it was primarily patriarchal, and that Kate was expected to be subservient and obedient. While this is sexist, on the surface, this was not the intended meaning behind the works. Rather, this was meant to convey how outlandish such common ideologies were in an increasingly sophisticated society.
