Enough, enough, my lord; you have enough:
I beg the law, the law, upon his head.
They would have stolen away; they would, Demetrius,
Thereby to have defeated you and me,
You of your wife and me of my consent,
Of my consent that she should be your wife.

– William Shakespeare

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 4, Scene 1. Egeus is a controlling father and wishes to the sole decider of who his daughter Hermia marries. After Lysander explains that he and Hermia ran away to be married, Egeus wants him to be punished. He demands that Duke Theseus bring the law down on his head. Even though Hermia loves Lysander, the unrelenting Egeus still demands that his daughter marry Demetrius.
