This leaves Montresor with the decision to either dishonor his family and not get revenge or honor his motto by getting revenge. Dishonoring his family is not an option, so the only option is to get revenge on Fortunato.
  • In conclusion, Montresor had legitimate reasons for getting revenge on Fortunato.
