Marriage in Fairy Tales

When we were children we believed in fairy tales and happy ever after endings just like Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and many other fairy tales. However, as we grow older, we soon realize that situations in real life do not always turn out as we would of expected our fairy tale to. When we were children we believed in fairy tales and happy ever after endings just like Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and many other fairy tales. However, as we grow older, we soon realize that situations in real life do not always turn out as we would of expected our fairy tale to. When we are young and fall in love we can sometimes have too high expectations for ourselves. We would like everything to be perfect. We think of our future together forever and hope that one day we will in fact have a fairy tale wedding and therefore live happily ever after.

The concept of marriage in fairytales is far from the reality that we experience. They think life is a magical place where everything revolves around them. We also have the knight in shining armour syndrome, where the girls believe everything that prince charming is telling them and get tossed over for the next beauty. Then we also have the truism of good and evil which I dont think classical fairy tales began but they sure do make people believe that once the evil witch/wizard is dead, we all live happily ever after. Our destiny is of our own making and cannot be written in a book.

Life of Female before Marriage

Life of Female after Marriage

  • Single Females always go out with friends to hang-out  and have some fun.
  • Their attention is only focus on their personal needs .
  • They are very conscious on how they look.
  • They don’t  have limits on the things that they will do.
  • They have their own identity.
  • They don’t depend to others.
  • Girls become more matured and more responsible especially when it comes to her family.
  • There is also a change in her lifestyle . In the way she dress and show herself.
  • They become more protective especially to their children.
  • They cannot easily go out with friends because they already have responsibilities.
  • They become more loving and caring.
  • They must learn to adapt to the environment of his partner.
  • They must learn to love the family of his partner especially her in-laws.

Compare and Contrast your structure in the story of an hour. :

In the story of an hour , Chopin suggests that all marriages, even the kindest ones, are inherently oppressive. Louise, who readily admits that her husband was kind and loving, nonetheless feels joy when she believes that he has died. Her reaction doesn’t suggest any malice, and Louise knows that she’ll cry at Brently’s funeral. However, despite the love between husband and wife, Louise views Brently’s death as a release from oppression. She never names a specific way in which Brently oppressed her, hinting instead that marriage in general stifles both women and men. She even seems to suggest that she oppressed Brently just as much as he oppressed her. Louise’s epiphany in which these thoughts parade through her mind reveals the inherent oppressiveness of all marriages, which by their nature rob people of their independence. Just like in the structure that I made , Single females are free to do the things that they want because they don’t have responsibilities to do unlike to married women who has limitations in doing things.  Married women also needs to change their life style for the man that she marry and adapt to the environment of his partner since in our culture we consider men as superiors.
