I'm not sure if this is as much of a big deal as some people make it out to be. for some people, if they would have lived together with their spouse, before getting married, I'm sure would have changed their mind in actually marrying that person and would would have changed the outcome of their entire life just by finding out that living with their significant other wouldn't work. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage or a perfect relationship. Everyone knows that there is a lot of give and take to make things work. But what if someone isn't willing to compramise?
Whereas, the couples must love each other unconditionally and decide on choosing each other without the input of anyone else but themselves, it is assumed that “married couples should be best friends, sharing their most intimate feelings and secrets. They should express affection openly but also talk candidly about problems. And of course they should be sexually faithful to each other.” (Coontz 381) In my opinion, I do not agree with Stephanie Coontz saying George Shaw theory of marriage has unrealistic expectations even though each culture has their own interpretation of marriage. No matter what each culture is different, if they believe that having more than one wife or having cospouses it is their choice and some will stay true to the values they were raised on. Finally, Coontz brought forth if someone is not marrying for love but just for the status then what is the point of getting married.
This is really sad to me simply because it’s a give or take relationship. You give away your time with your family and friend and the environment your used just to take your soul mate’s hand in marriage. The couple is then forced to stay in that state because they may not receive the same benefits in any other state. I believe that a same sex married couple should receive the same benefits as a man and woman married couple would. This means being able to move to different states and still being considered as a married couple.
Lord Capulet’s attitude just suddenly changed because he would rather have a great family reputation instead of his only daughter marrying her love. “Not proud you have, but thankful that you have. Proud can I never be of what I hate, but thankful even for hate that is meant love.” 3. What is the Nurse’s advice to Juliet? Why is this hurtful to her?
The next choice was closed adoption. I would not be able to be a part of my son’s life. The adoption agency would choose the family and after birth I would not know anything more. I would always wonder what my son was doing, what does he look like, and is he okay? I did not want my son to think that I just gave him away because I did not love him or want him.
Introduction Capulet is protective to his daughter because he wants the best for her; he respects her as long as she respects him. He cares for her, he shows discipline to her. This quote suggests “my child is yet a stranger in the world, she hath not seen change of fourteen years; Let two more summers wither in their pride, ere we may think her ripe to be bride.’’ This quote proves he cares for Juliet he doesn’t want Juliet to marry early because he thinks that she is still young to marry Paris and he thinks that she isn’t out of childhood yet to be a bride. He is also sometimes interfering, commanding, controlling, very violent person with a short temper. This quote conveys “Hang thee,
They would not have learned the value of working in order to gain. They will put greater emphasis on appearance rather than substance simply because their needs were met with little to no effort of their own. This type of attitude will spill over into their workplace, into their relationship and eventually in their own children. However, there is hope. Recognizing the codependency and accepting it as a role in the dysfunctional family is the first step in breaking the cycle.
Before the abuse, Mother would’ve done anything for her family. When the abuse started, mother thought of Dave as nothing. She treated Dave like an “It”. Dave’s relationship with his father was also weird. I don’t understand how father didn’t try to protect his son no matter what could’ve happened.
She said, “We are no spawn from the devil, we were born just like you.” “The only difference we have is the color of our skin.” “We work hard to support our families and we are just trying to live our only life as good as we can get.” “So please just take the time to realize that, and we will not cause harm to you in any such way as long as no harm is caused on us.” “ Maybe one day we can sit down, have a cup of tea, talk, and become friends.” At first the white people were very taken back by this. But a few weeks down the line the Younger’s noticed changes. There were no longer death threats on their door, and their garden was in one piece. The neighbors started to acknowledge them and greet them like they did to their fellow white neighbors. Walter Lee was so taken back by this that he was so happy Mama did what she did with the money because he believes that what he was going to use the money for would not of gotten him accepted within a white community.
Therefore, people just take the marriage like a set of duties and obligations. Both the bride and groom have certain responsibilities, the biggest duty is to have children and raise them according to society’s customs and religious teachings. For this reason, both parties are very careful about what they say or do and no one wants to be blamed for the failure of the marriage. In fact, to end a marriage would result in disgrace and excommunication from your family. In “Romeo and Juliet”, Juliet’s father, “Lord Capulet”, threatens Juliet by saying “An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend; a you be not, hang, beg, die, starve in the streets, for by my soul, I’ll never acknowledge thee, nor what is mine shall never do thee good.
