From Meeting to Marriage
in a Matter of Minutes
Sunday, February 22, 2009
ABSTRACT: Modern romantic relationships have key milestones that indicate its development: meeting, flirting, dating, engagement, marriage. For many couples, progressing from one stage to the next often takes place over the course of months or even years. In Disney movies (as well as many other films) characters willÂ meetÂ each other and decide toÂ marryÂ within a matter of days. Such an accelerated timeline of love could cause alarm to friends in real life, but is accepted as normal in the Disney world. I will explore possible reasons for these differences as well as question the influence these movies have on our perception of romance.
