PARIS Younger than she are happy mothers made.” Paris is eager to marry Juliet, but Capulet the father does not think that Juliet is old enough and i shappy to agree to marry them if Juliet agrees to. So Paris is really pushing for the marriage, but Capulet is not so sure and wants Juliet to like Paris
They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival. But even before Juliet knew it was Romeo she said, “If he’s married, I think I’ll die rather than marry anyone else.”(1.5.134-135).
Romeo and Juliet were young; they didn 't know any better, and the nurse did not want Juliet to feel as though she betrayed her. The deaths of the two unaware young lovers were caused by Lord Capulet. Lord Capulet had to protect his young daughter but instead of protecting her he was more involved with her getting married. He did not realize she was in love with Romeo or even seeing him. Lord Capulet could have prevented these deaths by listening to Juliet 's wishes and not force her to marry Paris.
Shakespeare displays the feud between the two families as an immense obstacle Romeo and Juliet have to bypass in order to achieve a lifetime of happiness and love. Support Even if their relationship is seen as impractical and impossible, Romeo continues to discreetly meet Juliet and marry her in secret, with the exception of Friar Lawrence and the Nurse. Romeo’s actions show how willing he is to go against the odds just so he can follow his heart and be with Juliet. Romeo goes against his family’s belief that the Capulets are his sworn enemies.
When Paris asked for Juliet’s hand in marriage, Capulet is hesitant and he comments, “My child is yet a stranger in the world; / She hath not seen the change of fourteen years. / Let two more summers wither in their pride, / Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride” (1.2.8-11). This quotation shows that Capulet wants Paris to wait two more summers to marry Juliet because she is not even fourteen years old yet. He decides that he wants Juliet to marry for love and says to Paris, “But woo her, gentle Paris, get her heart, / My will to her consent is but a part; / An she agree, within her scope of choice/Lies my consent and fair according voice (1.2.16-19). This quotation shows that if Paris can make Juliet fall in love with him, Capulet will let him marry her earlier.
In William Shakespeares play "Romeo and Juliet" Romeo and Juliet get married the day after they meet. The reason for this marriage is not love. Instead, Romeo wants to marry Juliet because she is beautiful. Juliet wants to marry Romeo because she does not want to marry Paris. Unfortunately, this marriage is driven by ulterior motives.
As a Friar, Friar Lawrence does not use his ability and skills wisely to marry the madly in love couple. He assumed that marrying the teenage Romeo and Juliet would stop the long-lasting feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I’ll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” (Shakespeare, 2.3) Not only did Friar Lawrence irresponsibly marry Romeo and Juliet after the naïve
/ Ah, word ill urged to one that is so ill! / In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman.”(1.1.197-199) Romeo only marries Juliet to ease the pain of heartbreak from Rosaline. Juliet isn’t in love with Romeo either. Just before Juliet meets Romeo for the first time she says she is not ready to be married. Her mother says, “LADY CAPULET: Marry, that 'marry ' is the very theme / I came to talk of.
Lord Capulet fails in the sense that he rushes Juliet into a marriage solely because he is of noble upbringing- “Of fair demesnes, youthful, and nobly trained” (Shakespeare 3.5.181). He does not take into account what hardships Juliet and Romeo might experience at such a young age. Capulet is repeatedly using his power and authority over Juliet in the benefit of only himself. At this time, it was normal in society for young girls to be married for the wealth and well being of the family, but he is very insensitive about her emotions. He insists that Juliet marry Paris, with the alternative being that he will disown her.
“Wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast.” (Shakespeare 2.3.101). In the beginning he said not to rush into a relationship, but then he willingly marries the two even though they went really fast. Even though he said to go slow he still married them. Friar Lawrence is also the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because he didn’t tell others what was going on. He could have told Romeo’s parents that Romeo was in love or even married to Juliet.
