The play has significance because of its ties to the "real-life" couples that have been married. Pyramus and Thisbe's love story ends tragically, however, unlike the newly married couples, who are very happy. The play's tragic ending serves to show the couples that they must always respect each other and their love and cherish it and their time together. It also shows the couples that true love cannot be denied and should not be hindered. Also the parallels are evident between another Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet, and the story of Pyramus and Thisbe, which is interesting!
