Furthermore, both Romeo and Juliet matured in many ways. Romeo matured from being a child to being more of an adult. Juliet matured in more ways than Romeo, she went from being an obedient, innocent child to being a independant, courageous adult. They both matured almost immediately after they met. They made many sacrifices in order to be together, which caused them to grow up and they risked their lives for each other.
In fact, as the play progressed, we are met with a scene where Juliet has no other choice but to marry Paris, who the Capulets originally planned Juliet to marry in the first place. The nurse was giving her advice on how she should marry Paris instead of Romeo. Soon after Juliet heard the nurse’s advice, readers can now see the thirst for Romeo from Juliet: “ If all else fail, myself have the power to die” (3.5.243). This is a crucial turning point for Juliet as it shows that Juliet is truly in love with Romeo and is willing to kill herself if she never sees Romeo again. The emotions shown by Juliet, conveys how strong love is able to overtake the mind and
Friar Lawrence gains awareness of this as he says this to Romeo the moment he informs Friar about this new Juliet: “Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here! Is Rosaline, that thou didst love so dear, so soon forsaken? Young men’s love the lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (2.3.69-72). As can be seen, Friar realizes how Romeo had had such a rapid change. His beloved Rosaline, which he could not make absent in his mind, has suddenly vanished from existence the moment Romeo gets a glimpse of the pretty face of Juliet.
Everyday Romeo and Juliet would go and talk to Friar Lawrence about what they have been thinking about or difficult events that had been happening. Romeo even told Friar Lawrence that he loved Juliet immediately after meeting her. Romeo would never risk telling his parents about liking Juliet this early in the relationship, since they wouldn't
Throughout The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet disobey their parents multiple times. Two examples are when Juliet rejects marrying Paris and when Romeo and Juliet get married. When Juliet rejects marrying Paris, her parents get mad and tell her that she has to marry Paris anyways. “I pray you tell my lord and father, madam, I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear It shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris. These are news indeed (III.v.
Before the marriage of Romeo and Juliet, Friar Laurence gives words of advice to Romeo. “These violent delights have violent ends / And, in their triumph die, like fire and powder, / Which, as they kiss, consume. The sweetest honey / Is loathsome in his own deliciousness / And in the taste confounds the appetite. / Therefore love moderately: long love doth so; / Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow,” (II.v.6.9). The friar gives this guidance as he knows Romeo and how he has been impulsive in the past.
Most people see William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as a romantic love story of two teens who killed themselves for each other, but who is really to blame here? Friar Laurence is at fault for their deaths because he married Romeo and Juliet, did not have a good plan set up, and left Juliet alone in the tomb. One reason why Friar Laurence is at fault is because in Act Two, Scene Three, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet secretly. Friar Lawrence told Romeo he had doubts because they had just met, also, Romeo had just been so in love with Rosaline the day before, and should wait. Romeo disagreed, and the friar gave in and married them anyway.
With the feud between Romeo and Juliets opposite families, one could say that their young love is set up to fail before it even begins. The Capulets from Juliet’s side of the family and the Montagues from Romeo’s dislike each other with a passion. This makes it difficult for Romeo and Juliet to see each other. This also forces them to marry in secret by Friar Lawrence. In the beginning of the play Romeo confesses his love to Juliet to a friend.
In Romeo and Juliet, the Shakespearean tragedy, it is proved that it is not. Why? Juliet was the rebound to Romeo’s other love, Rosaline, they both take actions that show they’re immature, and Romeo is already in ‘love’ with Juliet before he gets to know her, and it shows Romeo is only attracted to Juliet for her looks not her actual self. In Romeo and Juliet they were not in love; Romeo was in love with another beautiful lady named Rosaline, and Juliet was just his rebound. Romeo was not aware of Juliet 's existence until he went to a party.
From the moment he sees her at the Capulet party, Romeo immediately falls in love with Juliet. They both fall head over heels for each other as the night progresses. During their time together, they completely put all things aside and forget everything about the world except for their love for one another. Most people seem to think this way about the romance between Romeo and Juliet, but in reality, they aren’t actually truly in love. Romeo and Juliet are not in love with each other because just a day before they met, he felt heartbroken because of a girl named Rosaline who didn 't love him, he pressures Juliet to profess her love to him, and after just barely meeting, they both agree to get married.
