Love Always Wins in the End

"You do amaze her. Hear the truth of it.  You would have married her most shamefully, where there was no proportion held in love.  The truth is, she and I, have since contracted, are now so sure that nothing can dissolve us.  Th' offense is holy that she hath committed, and this deceit loses the name of craft, of disobedience, or unduteous title, Since therein she doth evitate and shun a thousand irreligious cursed hours which forced marriage would have brought upon her" (MWW, V.v.217-227).

I loved how the play ended, with Anne marrying for love instead of being given away for money.  Awhile she may have gone against her parents' wishes, they should rest assured that she is much happier now with Fenton than she ever would have been with Caius or Slender.  I believe that marriage should be for love, not for money.  And I was pleased to be proved wrong (see: first MWW blog) to find that Fenton really does care about Anne for who she is and not for her money.
