The Macbeths' Marriage
The marriage between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth is seemingly an unhealthy one. Macbeth seems to be a little bit of a push-over at the beginning of the play because he does what his wife wants, with a little bit of persuading on her part, and trusts that she knows what she’s doing and what’s right. Lady Macbeth only cares about what she wants and is willing to use her masochistic ways to achieve her goals, regardless of what her husband wants. She believes that the only way Macbeth will become king anytime soon, is if he murders King Duncan. She appears to have no faith in him and doesn't think that he could do it on his own. Their relationship is manipulative, insulting, and immature.
