Make a prediction: in five years, what type of marriage do you think Petruchio and Kate will have, and compare that to what you predict for the marriage of Lucentio and Bianca. Give reasons for your predictions.

Based upon Kate's maturation from girl to woman, I think their marriage will become stronger over the year. Petruchio will learn to respect her as a woman because he doesn't have to consistently deal her as a little girl. On a similar note, Kate will be able get to know her husband because she isn't always fighting against him.

Lucentio and Bianca are going to have a problem. He believed he was marrying the "perfect woman," and got a huge surprise. I don't think they will fare as well as the other couple.
