Marriage does not mean happiness and it has not for hundreds of years. From Larry King to Barbara Walters, beauty is not the foundation for marriage and this false idolization of love can be seen in the real world and in the world of fiction. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is a prime example of literary relationships developing around the misconceptions of marriage. The majority of these relationships stem from false love and money, but other marriages rise above the standard and show true love and compassion. To begin, fake love has many characteristics which includes: self concern, infatuation, adultery and an absence of trust.
Unrealistic reactions in Marie de France’s “Eliduc” In her lais “Eliduc” Marie seems to have several un-realistic views on the psychological complexity of love assuming that there are no hidden factors that could explain these behaviours.

It looks as though he had feelings for his wife, Guildeluec whether it was romantic feelings or friendship feelings is not speculated on by Marie. We know that during their marriage the married couple are faithful to one another “They lived happily for several years, since it was a marriage of trust and love” (page 1) but Marie de France does not speak about the depth of their love or if their love is “true

In Carver 's story, What We Talk About When We Talked About Love, he gave a scenario in which the two couples were drinking gin and talking on what is the definition of love.

As for Terri, Mel 's second wife, she was telling a story about her previous husband who is abusive and hurts her, but she still thinks that he was able to do those things because of his love for her.

Hermia and her father Egues is another example of control in this story.

Love triangles are common theme in many books, one very well-known one is in the Twilight Saga. The Vincent Boys by Abbi tells the tale about Ash, Beau and Sawyer who all grew up together; Beau and Ash being the crazy ones and Sawyer was the one who also ‘bailed’ (not from jail just sticky situations) them out of trouble. Sawyer knew that Ash liked Beau and vice versa, but he was a ‘selfish bastard’ and asked her out so he could have her for himself. This split up them and Beau derailed completely becoming the town’s bad boy. While Sawyer is away, Beau and Ash begin a relationship in secret.
Look you, Cassio and my husband” (3.4.92-95).Emilia’s statement clearly suggests what it is like to be a woman during her time and how men would treat them. In other words, men only see woman as a toy for sex; men used them whenever they wanted and threw them away like trash after they’re done. In fact Iago, Emilia’s husband thinks this way too, as he once states what he thinks of women, he says, “Nay, it is true, or else I am a Turk: You rise to play and go to bed to work” (2.1.114-115).He believes that women act and play as a lady and a housewife during the day and they work hard to please men during the nights and that’s their only job and responsibility. To be specific woman was considered dumb and why not? They never got education as it was a taboo in the English society.

There are two major types of marriages in the world, arranged and love marriages. An arranged marriage is when a partner for one of the individuals is chosen by their family, and no love is usually involved. A love marriage on the other hand is when two individuals choose to marry each other because of the love they share for each other. A successful marriage is when both individuals can love, care, trust, and are happy with each other even through the ups and downs. Even though arranged marriages have their pros such as lower suicide and teen pregnancy rates, love marriages are more successful than arranged marriages because the individuals actually love each other from the start, there is the freedom of choosing their own spouse, and there
“What I have to say is going to be a relief to most of you, because deep down you’ve known something was... different” (43). This phrase was said by a camp advisor, Holiday, from the fiction novel Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter. This book has three strong women, romantic tensions, and suspense that create multiple themes such as female empowerment, love, and acceptance. This isn’t a typical fiction book where men save women.
Even Gosalyn could not and would not argue against that, even if she would be bumped back to the grunt regimen -again-. Her best friend was precious to her and she would not forgive herself if he was injured, or worse, because of her impatience; Honker, for all his smarts was the sort of boy who could hurt himself walking down the
The marriage between Daisy and Tom started off with Tom cheating on their honeymoon. This endless act pattern never ceases. While Tom does claim that “[o]nce in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time,” Daisy snapily replies “you 're revolting.” Even at the beginning of the book, Daisy refers to Tom as “a brute of a man, a great, big, hulking physical specimen.” She married him because of his status and the “pomp and circumstance” he brought. Tom also has a significant relationship with another woman, Myrtle. This illicit relationship is quickly shown to be shallow as after Myrtle brought up Daisy, “making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand.” He also only thinks of himself after Myrtle is fatally killed, trying to figure out the best way to protect himself, and particularly distraught about her death.
Women were considered to be weak, also were ordered to stay home and become a housewife. Yet, it is interesting how the author made the only daughter in the family become an easy target for men to have sex with. Dewey Dell said, “And we picked on toward the secret shade and our eyes would drown together touching his hands and my hands and I didn’t say anything. I said ‘What are you doing?’ and he said ‘I am picking into your sack.’ And so it was full when we came to the end of the row and I could not help it.’” (27). In this scene of the book where Dewey Dell was with Lafe and he made a move on her and her “sack” that led both of them having sex, at first Dewey Dell knew what Lafe was hinting at her, whether she agreed or did not agree with his action, she did not have the voice to speak up.
