    We share a common trait and that is we are both protective older siblings. I am the oldest of three. I have a younger sister and a brother. I would not want either of them to marry someone like Jason. I would have to agree with you on the fact that Medea was into Jason more than Jason was into her, she should not have devoted as much time as she did on him, then again she didn't think he would break there promise and be as deceitful as he was.

    4. Well Euripides does not state why Jason starts to actually care for him but I have an idea why. He was not too worried because he believed that they would be taken care of by their mother and later by him when he states on lines 668-672, “ I want to raise them in the proper way, one worthy of my house, to have brothers for the children born from you, and make them 670 all the same.
