Treadwell, Machinal (Scenes 1-5) -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

MOTHER. Love!-what does that amount to! Will it clothe you? Will it feed you? Will it play the bills?
YOUNG WOMAN. No! But it's real just the same!
MOTHER. I'll tell you what you can count on! You can count that you've got to eat and sleep and get up and put clothes on your back and take 'em off again-that you got to get old-and that you got to die. That's what you can count on! All the rest is in your head!

How often do you guys think that this happens? How often do people marry for convienence? I can think of three people that I personally know who married for money, stability, or some reason other than love. Alot of people think this way, that it is more important to be taken care of for the rest of your life than to be in love or to wait for love and be hungry, cold, lonely, etc.
