Love and Marriage in Much ado about nothing
Even though love and marriage was a major ideal in Shakespearean England, we can get views from Much Ado about nothing, which oppose this idea. From the two main 'couples' in this play we can understand their different views on commitment throughout and because of this we as readers and viewers can learn about each relationship separately and watch the thoughts and ideas change throughout the play.
From the scene given we can make many assumptions on the Beatrice and Benedick relationship and how it may have grown throughout the previous acts and scenes. We can tell from this small passage that Beatrice and Benedick have a love/hate relationship which may have come from past relationship let downs...
Beatrice: indeed my lord, he lent it me awhile, and I gave him use for it, a double heart for his single one. Marry, once before he won it off me with false dice, therefore your grace may well say I have lost it.
The two seem to have the same ideas on marriage even though we learn through the play that this is not true, they both know it
