As to companionate marriages -- what about Beatrice and Benedick? Rosalind and
Orlando?

Ronald Dwelle wonders about companionate marriages in Shakespeare.  My feeling
is that he is generally right about those marriages dramatized by the plays,
but that many plays end with companionate marriages that we are expected to see
as "happily ever after."  Of course not all comic marriages are of this type (I
have trouble with the Duke and Isabella in MFM and Bertram and Helena in AWTEW
to name two obvious ones), but there are quite a few.  I'll name the one I'll
be teaching this week: Perdita and Florizel in WT.
