The Natural Course of Love

AMSND-UH0EWE

Which lines from the play seem to support the idea that the natural course of love is marriage?

A

If then true lovers have been ever cross'd,
It stands as an edict in destiny:
Then let us teach our trial patience,
Because it is a customary cross,
(1.1.150)

B

The course of true love never did run smooth
(1.1.134)

C

So I, admiring of his qualities.
Things base and vile, holding no quantity,
Love can transpose to form and dignity.
(1.1.231)

D

To say the truth, reason and love keep little company together now-a-days; the more the pity that some honest neighbours will not make them friends.
(3.1.132)

E

Fair lovers, you are fortunately met;
Of this discourse we more will hear anon.
Egeus, I will overbear your will;
For in the temple, by and by, with us
These couples shall eternally be knit.
(4.1.174)
