Much Ado About Nothing

The main conflict in the story has to do with marriage itself, and the fact that the play's primary male characters are suspicious of marriage and afraid the marital state will leave them less than men (controlled by their wives).

External or Internal?

Attempted Solution: How did characters attempt to solve the problem/conflict?

This is an internal conflict. Claudio is so suspicious about love that even after winning the woman of his dreams, he still believes Hero to be unchaste after she is accused. Resolution comes after he believes she is dead, and he agrees to marry someone he has never seen or met. This decision signifies that he is no longer afraid of being controlled by a woman or suspicious of marriage. The bonus...... he gets the girl of his dreams.

Bonus; girl of his long hard dreams.
