Beatrice and Benedick are involved in what could only be called a 'love/hate'
relationship. The play is a classic example of this type of relationship, and allows us

Beatrice and Benedick's fears
concerning love and marriage were unfounded. Even after admitting that they love each
other, they are still fundamentally the same people that they were before. They are
happier, even though they still 'spar' verbally (even at the alter), and their freedom
does not seem to be suffering in any way. What started out as what seemed to be hatred
has turned to love. Too bad that is not always the case.
