Éowyn and Éomer's relationship
She has a lot of very good reasons to feel trapped and bitter. She sees a leader, someone with strength and resolve. Someone worth following into battle, which she longs to do, and maybe most notably: Now, once Gandalf fixes Theoden everyone goes off to do Important Things and sort of forgets about her. Now that the king is better no one seems to consider what she wants out of life, what her hopes or dreams are, what she can contribute beyond helping the men be more manly.
Unfortunately, once she meets Aragorn, things start to get wonky. Not because I have any problem with romantic storylines! My issue is with the way they had Eowyn moon over Aragorn in the films.

And it hinges on a key scene from the book that they left out completely. And she calls him on it. But when the men have died in battle and honour, you have leave to be burned in the house, for the men will need it no more. But I am of the House of Eorl and not a serving-woman.
I can ride and wield blade, and I do not fear either pain or death. Full of sexist shit, in fact.
This matters because A. The closest we get is the line about women in that country knowing that those without swords can still die upon them and fearing neither death nor pain…but it lacks the context and direct confrontation of sexism that the book provides. Grown men cower at the sound of his voice. He stabbed Frodo at Weathertop. He even freaks out Gandalf. So, this terrifying monster thing has just mortally wounded her uncle and she tells it where it can stick it in one of my favorite passages in the whole series.
Leave the dead in peace! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shriveled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye.
No living man may hinder me! It seemed that Dernhelm laughed, and the clear voice was like the ring of steel. You look upon a woman. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him. He threatened her with horrifying, endless torture and mind rape, basically. And she laughs at him.
And then she stabs him in the face. In the end, she settles for what she can get, because she cannot wed her brother, and she cannot have Aragorn for he is promised to another, so she weds Faramir, a noble man much of the same stuff as both of the others.
Nukapei 's view Here's my opinion: Rohan tradition doesn't allow her to do this, so she feels "caged," locked in by tradition telling her what she can do and can't do due to her gender. She hates this, so when she finds Aragorn, she thinks wedding him would get her out of this situation. Plus, he's an honorable man; and, yes, reminds her of her brother!
They say a girl will marry someone who reminds her of her father; in the absence of a father-figure, perhaps a brother will do just as well! However, she doesn't really love Aragorn. He knows this and loves Arwen, anywayand so rejects her advances. Even though the movie makes it look like he encourages it at first, ugh! Afterward, she meets Faramir in the midst of her grief. When this didn't work, it only frustrates her further, until she meets Faramir.
At first he's just a fellow patient in the House of Healing, but then he falls in love with her. I honestly think she in turn falls in love with him. Without realizing it, she has stumbled upon another "meal ticket" -- and this one is so much better because she loves him!
They would have had a happier life, anyway -- both she and Aragorn have a very aggressive personality, so probably would have ended up hating each other.
It was one of two inseparable souls. I witnessed this same sort of relationship between my dear mother and the brother who was closest to her in age. When they were younger they were inseparable.The Lord Of The Rings, 2004 - (Deleted scene:№19) [HD 1080p]
They went skiing together. They went mountain climbing together. Nobody believed they were brother and sister.
When he died, a part of her died with him.
