The end results for Esperanza are incredibly positive and she is able to marry her love, while unfortunately the results of the relationship for Renata Remedios ends in pain and agony. Tita and Pedro help Esperanza by succeeding in defying the fate that Fernanda and tradition had in mind for Esperanza, by assisting her in getting married. Fernanda rejects Renata Remedios' love, and though a series of unfortunate events, her one chance at true love and happiness are destroyed by Fernanda's harsh and irrational actions."
