Now with the approval from the Nurse Juliet also learns of the marriage that the Nurse selflessly set up for Juliet to get married to her true love Romeo. In a conversation with Juliet the Nurse delivered the news “Then hie you hence to Friar Laurence’ cell;/There stays a husband to make you a wife”(Ⅲ,ⅴ,68-69). First, the Nurse tested Juliet to make sure that she truly loved Romeo. Then, deciding that Romeo and Juliet should be together she decided to tell Juliet the news that Romeo waits to marry her. This part really was decided by the Nurse’s opinion, because if she didn’t approve of Romeo she could have easily withheld the information about the marriage.
If he doesn’t, she will change hers if Romeo swears his love. What followed was Romeo promising that he will change his name for Juliet. This portrays their desire to be together, not separated. With this in mind, the way Juliet knows that loving Romeo gives both of them a risk conveys how people will go out their way and risk to be with someone. 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.
“Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here! Is Rosaline, whom thou didst love so dear, So soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (Shakespeare 2.3.65-68). After telling Friar about Juliet, Romeo said that he wanted Friar to marry them, but Friar was hesitant. Friar thought that Romeo did not love Juliet and was rushing into this to quickly.
The advice and help he gives them not only affects their decisions, but also the outcome of the play itself. The first one to seek out Friar Lawrence 's advice is Romeo. Romeo confesses that he was talking with Juliet and that they had fallen in love. He was also hoping to receive Friar Lawrence 's consent to marry Juliet and himself. Friar Lawrence agrees to do so because he believes that their love may turn the two families hatred for each other into love.
The first type of love shown in Romeo and Juliet is unrequited love. In one case Romeo talks about his unreturned love for Rosaline, saying, “Out of her favor, where i am in love” (1.1.158). Romeo is hinting at the point that Rosaline has nothing to do with him, yet, he is in love with her. In this case Rosaline will never return Romeo’s love for her, displaying unrequited love. This love is shown once again in another part of the story with Juliet.
Love is complex in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare by making various characters dramatically illogical, significantly overjoyed, or incredibly angry. Love’s influence on Romeo and Juliet make them noticeably illogical. Romeo, near the beginning of the story, had a strong affection for a woman named Rosaline. When Romeo is acting unusually depressed, his cousin Benvolio questions what is bothering him. Romeo explains that his love, Rosaline, does not love him back, and continues to describe the reasoning behind his sadness: “Tut, I have lost myself.
Another point to consider is the consummation of love cited in the original writing; Even though the love between the two was passionate, the couple only consummates their love after they are married, something that prevents them from losing the sympathy of the public. It is possible that Romeo and Juliet function as an equation of love and sex, with death. Throughout the tragedy, he and she fantasize about this "fulminating equality", usually attributed to a lover. For example, Mr. Capulet is the one who first realizes Julieta 's "death", comparing this factor with the deflowering of his daughter, and, a little later, Julieta compares, erotically, Romeo with death. Just before committing suicide, he decides to use
The Friar’s excessive pride allows him to agree to wed Romeo and Juliet, hoping he can bring the Montagues and Capulets together, though these families hatred spans generations. He even states his goal. “For this alliance so happy prove / To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3. 91-92). Whether the Friar realizes it or not, he has just done something terrible that only strengthens the bond of these two lovers.
After Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry himself and Juliet, Romeo is highly ecstatic, translating to the mood of Mercutio. Contently, Mercutio teases “Why, is not this better now than groaning for love? ...for this drivelling love is like a great natural that runs lolling up and down to hide his bauble…” (2.4.80-84). Shakespeare uses a simile to compare Romeo looking for love to a fool trying to hide his jester stick, proving that the static character of Romeo is enamoured again. This is dramatically ironic, as Mercutio does not know the truth behind Romeo’s estactiness.
Unfortunately, this marriage is driven by ulterior motives. The following paragraphs will demonstrate that Romeo and Juliet want to get married for very different reasons, as evidenced by their fantasies of escapism. First of all, Juliet supports the marriage because she does not want to marry Paris. This is demonstrated when Juliet says she does not want to marry Paris before she meets Romeo. In the beginning of the play Lady Capulet asks Juliet if she would like to
