A romantic comedy can be multifarious,with the main theme being love. In the play 'As You Like It'  Shakespeare has introduced not only romance between four different couples but also different ways in which these couples deal with their love love for each other. The most romantic pair is Rosalind and Orlando who fall in love with each other at the first sight. Their love for each other remains consistent. On the other hand Audrey and Touchstone are not in love with each other yet they plan to marry.Audrey wants to marry touchstone to become a courtly lady while Touchstone wants to marry her just for some female companionship. Selvious and Phebe go through a one sided love as Selvious is madly in love with her and Phebe has fallen in love with Ganymede.
