In the movie Tangled, we see how a princess locked in a castle falls in love with a man from the world outside of her; one in which she has never seen before. This shows the human original solitude, which means that we are social beings made for relationships (Miss Collucci). Rapunzel is alone her whole life, Eugene is alone his whole life as well, but by the grace of God they will find each other and fall in love.
All her life, Rapunzel is locked away in a castle by a woman who she believes is her mother. Her “mother” is keeping her from the outside world, preventing Rapunzel from having any type of human relationship with anyone except for her. But, the relationship between two family members (or so Rapunzel thinks anyways), is very different than the relationship between a man and woman. Since she is locked in a tower with just this woman who has convinced her that she is her mother, Rapunzel is completely prevented from, not only seeing the outside world, but also is prevented from finding the true love between man and woman that God has set out for all of us to find.

It also does not appear that he wants any type of real relationship with a woman, considering the way he acted when he first met Rapunzel. Although he does not say it, nor does he act like it, but it seems that Eugene has always wanted to find someone for himself, but everyone already knows his reputation where he is from. God says: “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him" (Gn 2:18). Once the two meet, neither had the intentions of falling in love. Eugene had just wanted the crown at first and Rapunzel was basically using him to see the floating lights that appear on her birthday. But, spending all the time that they did together, they learn that they truly do...
