The artwork by Paolo Veronese were known for being created on large platforms and were centered on religious topics. One notable works of his was The Wedding at Cana. This piece is a depiction of Jesus' first miracle as he turned water into wine for a wedding celebration. Based in Venice, Veronese's life was heavily influenced by the Christian culture and was esteemed by the community and church officials for his artistic abilities. As Veronese painted in the Mannerist style, The Wedding at Cana was an asymmetrical painting with elegant principles. Also, Veronese heavily used vibrant colors to show the richness of the subjects and to create light. This painting has lived through several interesting eras and owners. Wars and political overlords dominated the geography of this painting and even damaged the canvas. Since Veronese's style and talents were sought after, his work, religious and secular, was mostly commissioned by patrons of the Venetian community.

In the brief years of the Regency Era from 1811 to 1820, the social scheme was revolutionized by elegant balls, intermingling prominent families, and inevitable drama that spread quickly throughout the towns. Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice presents a rare fusing of two socially indecent girls and two wealthily distinguished
Dowries are extremely important to consider when it comes to arranged marriages. A dowry is a gift that could be goods, money, or land that a bride’s family will give to the groom to marry the bride. Dowries could be used to bring two powerful families together by having their children marry, for example, royal arranged marriages. In the Biblical sense, a girl who is still a virgin is more of prize than one who is not. In a way dowries make the daughter or son feel as property as told by Sara Smolinsky, “to [my father] I was nothing but his last unmarried daughter to be bought and sold” (205). Mr. Smolinsky stated, “It’s not enough to take my Bessie without a dowry. You must pay me yet” (47). Mr. Smolinsky, being the stubborn man he is, decided when Berel Bernstein asked for Bessie’s hand in marriage without the need of a dowry, that Mr. Smolinsky should get a bride price as well. A bride price
Marriage In Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen introduces the major thematic concept of marriage and financial wealth. Throughout the novel, Austen depicts various relationships that exhibit the two recurring themes. Set during the regency period, the perception of marriage revolves around a universal truth. Austen claims that a single man “must be in want of a wife.” Hence, the social stature and wealth of men were of principal importance for women. Austen, however, hints that the opposite may prove more exact: a single woman, under the social limitations, is in want of a husband. Through this speculation, Austen acknowledges that the economic pressure of social acceptance serves as a foundation for a proper marriage.
Julie Rowland Mrs. Toppin English IV 10/6/14 Marriage in “The Merchant’s Tale” Early British writing like The Canterbury’s Tale section of “The Merchant’s Tale” written by Geoffrey Chaucer, the father of English poetry, reflect on social values. Much of the tale speaks about a marriage that over flows of vices. Societies vision of how marriages should work, display the vices of holy matrimony. The corruptness of societies views on marriage lead to a loveless marriage. Chaucer reflects on how much societies views influenced marriages in the 1300’s; he shows this by using conflicts in marriage of man verses himself, women versus herself, and man versus women.
According to Aristotle “Man is a social animal", however when an individual is forced to decide to either become accustomed with the set norms or take the risk of continuing to believe in their inner voice that subsequently makes them a target of public scrutiny. The external conflict between man and society takes place when a person believes in something about a matter while their community disagrees with those beliefs. The conflicts between an individual and the society are reflected in these three short stories, “The Bridegroom,” “Saboteur” by Ha Jin, and “Before the law” by Kafka. The protagonists are directly or indirectly affected by the powerful and authoritative nature of laws made by their societies. Inequality of an individual in their society can evoke a passive or predatory behavior which can cause great harm to the society and to an individual’s mentality, and the intimidating behavior of the society leaves a person with no control over their life.

For my entire life, I have been raised to be very accepting of others. A group of people in particular that I have been raised to support is the LGBTQ community. This is especially because of my uncle and his partner. Sadly, they passed away a few years before I was born. However, that does not stop me from feeling a connection to them or continuing to support them and others like them. Furthermore, I have other family members and friends that are part of the LGBTQ community as well. Thus, adding more dogs to the fight.
I wish to participate in the summer bride program because of the many opportunities it will provide that I could not have gained otherwise. Being a first generation student I have been taught since I was a young child that a higher education is crucial to making a difference in the world around me. My father was raised in Ethiopia and while he did experience it himself, he was well aware of rampant poverty and the lack of access to education for children and adults alike. Many individuals my father saw were not able to complete high school or college because of socioeconomic problems and were left with little choices for sources of income. Women and children would run up to car windows and beg for money for food in order to feed themselves

Queen Matilda of England brought to the marriage table a dowry of estates. While, she did not grant William great wealth, she did possess great wealth of her own. Roughly one fourth of the wealth of Matilda and William belonged to Matilda. She presented her husband with the ship the Mora as a symbol of her approval of his conquest of England. Matilda, being well educated and capable, served as regent of Normandy while her husband was away in England. Matilda made the journey to England in 1068 where she was crowned Queen of England. Matilda, like many queens of her time, actively participated in government. Roughly one hundred charters bear Matilda’s name, suggesting that she occasionally maintained full responsibility of Normandy in her husband’s absence. Matilda became a wealthy landowner in England, where she held lands in the counties of Surrey, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall, Buckinghamshire, and Gloucestershire. She maintained contact with her family in Flanders and even provided William with Flemish men for his army. She was also a key player in King William’s rule of England, hearing land pleas and negotiating with nobles. Matilda

After her father died, Mary Astell was left without a dowry, resulting in her being considered incompatible for marriage. In her book, Some Reflections Upon Marriage, Astell pointed out that there were only few lively marriages in England because of the way the English institution worked. Marriages in England were determined by income, and no thought went into the emotional harmony and compatibility of husband and wife. This was so rendering to Astell’s life because she didn’t have the money to marry someone with the same viewpoints as her or even respectable enough to take her hand in marriage. Mary Astell proclaimed that “[marriage] for Love, an Heroick Action, which makes a mighty noise in the World, partly because of its rarity, and partly in regard of its extravagancy” (Astell 41). In this quote, Mary Astell is saying that men and women rarely marry for love because it was more common for them to be bounded together for financial benefits and an increase of social status. But, when a couple married for love, they made a larger mark on the world this is because it showed that there was a step closer in the direction of women marrying a man that will love her and had no need to support her financially. Astell believed that women should not be viewed as a slave or property, and that they should have the ability to chose their own destiny. She showed that men rarely married for love because if a man admired a woman for her wit, than an unsuccessful marriage would
