Hermia, you should obey your father because he is the one who gave you your beauty.
Lysander is much better than Demetrius!
I will give you three options, you can either die, marry Demetrius, or become a nun.
I would rather die then marry Demetrius, someone I do not love.
Since this is a big decision, I will give you until my wedding day to decide.
Egeus comes to Theseus to to force Hermia to marry Demetrius. Theseus tells Hermia that she should do what her father says because she should think of her father as a god because he is the one who gave her beauty.
I like him so much I am giving him to my daughter.
If Egeus loves Demetrius so much then why doesn't Egeus marry him.
Theseus says that Demetrius is a good man. Hermia disagrees and says that Lysander is better than Demetrius. Theseus says that since Hermia won't marry Lysander Hermia has a choice to either die, become a nun, or marry Lysander.
This is awful having my love determined by someone else.
If only the lovers were a good match!
If lovers are alway apart then it must be fate. We should just stay patient.
We can sneak out tomorrow night. Meet me in the forest a few miles outside of town.
I have an aunt that is rich and thinks of me as a son. She lives 20 miles from Athens and the laws don't apply to us so we can get married there.
