概要 This paper is based on a presentation delivered at the 25th Conference of LCA. It compares and contrasts the aspects of two betrothals and their consequences in the short stories, "The First Seven Years" by Barnard Malamud and "The Romantic Young Lady" by William Somerset Maugham. The followings are the result of the analysis of these two stories: Miriam in "The First Seven years" is determined to choose Some as her husband without pretension of social status whereas Jose chooses practical means over his fiance Piral who as a higher status than Jose and he does not marry her in "The Romantic Young Lady." Maugham may reflect an irony of passion in youth and show one can be happy in the old age as the result of being compelled to marry a man with a social status.
