Romeo and Juliet want to get married so Romeo goes to Friar Laurence. “Then plainly know my heart's dear love is set on the fair daughter of the rich Capulet (2.3.57-58).” Romeo and Juliet love each other a lot so they choose to get married without thinking of the consequences. Even some of the smarter people in Verona make huge mistakes. Even the friar who gives the advice doesn't think before he makes his decision. Maybe he should have listened to his own advice.“ till holy church incorporate two in one (2.6.37).” Friar makes them happily married without thinking what will happen to him.
Romeo disagreed, and the friar gave in and married them anyway. He had good intentions, thinking it would bring the two feuding families to peace, but it does not turn out that way. Instead, it drifts the families even more apart, and even inside one family there is distance. The second reason the friar is at fault is because the plan he set up for Juliet to be with Romeo failed. The plan was to have Juliet take a death-stimulating potion to avoid marrying Paris.
He could have not been so dramatic and avoided a lot of issues that happened. For example, In the begging of the play, we knew he was very upset because Roselyn did not like him back, which is normal for a teenager. He later then went to a Capulet party and met Juliet. He instantly fell in love with her and got married 3 days later. Now some people might say that he was really madly in love with her, but nobody just falls in love that fast.
Although she begins a relationship with Nick, she never really seems to buy in completely. She further shows her unethical side when she becomes the contact for Daisy and Gatsby to begin their affair. Jordan’s heart seems to soften up towards the end of the story. She begins to see a future with Nick but her callousness to the death of Myrtle totally turns Nick away from her, almost to the point of disgust. (source) Jordan’s failed relationship with Nick may have forced her to rethink what it meant to be in a relationship as we find out that when Nick finally reaches out to her again, she is engaged to be
What a moment." (Pg 153) I disliked the fact that Theo dissed the girl just because his friend wouldn 't like it. "He wasn 't exactly looking for a girlfriend, and besides, April would be devastated if he began chasing a flirt like Hallie." (Pg 153) I also liked that the Boone 's were intelligent enough to dance around the illegal immigrant thing, save the trial, save Roberto, and give Julio 's family a home. "He explained that his parents were offering the deal of a lifetime.
Some may think that it is Friar´s fault, for making the plan to get Romeo and Juliet married. And it can also be said that it is Benvolio 's who helped Romeo meet Juliet by taking him to the party. However, this is not true because it is Romeo who follows through these plans or advises to make these plans due to his unwise decisions. Afterall, he asked Friar to marry them ¨I’ll tell thee as we pass, but this I pray: That thou consent to marry us today¨ (Shakespeare 2.3.63-64). He requests Friar to get them married while Friar is not happy with him falling in love with another person all of a sudden.
The first reason why Friar Laurence is to blame is because he married Romeo and Juliet. After they decided they wanted to get married right away, Romeo and Juliet go to Friar’s cell to get married. Friar first questions the love because Romeo was in love with another women only a few hours ago. He only agrees to marry them because he thinks it will end the family tension. “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; / For this alliance may be so happy prove / To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (II.iii.90-92).
Romeo was deeply in love with Rosaline and wanted to be with her and get married. “For beauty starved with her severity…She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair: She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow…” (Romeo and Juliet 1.1.210-214) Romeo thought that Rosaline was everything he was looking for. Rosaline on the other hand did not care for Romeo, or from what the play tells us. Romeo moved on past Rosaline at a party the Capulets were throwing. If Romeo had not moved onto Juliet many, if not all, characters would have still been alive.
I 've got one word to describe that, stupid.Just thinking about someone falling in love and killing themselves at the age of 13 is just stupid to me. The Friar wasn’t strict enough to say no and the Capulets were too strict to let Juliet live her life with Romeo.If there is one thing I have learned from this story, it’s that you always want to meet your other half 's family. Especially once you
Some evidence to support this argument would be this quote. "Romeo 's friends, who wish to see him lifted above his melancholy, urge him to stop philosophizing about his lost love and to seek another young lady as a new object of his affections." (Dupler 1). This quote is basically describing what is going on before Lord Capulet 's party starts. Essentially what is going on during this time is that Mercutio and Benvolio are forcing Romeo to go to a party so he can invest his time in a new girl instead of moping about Rosaline, who is the girl Romeo loved before.

Love to Laugh The romantic comedy genre has so many different attempts at creating a movie that entertains both genders, most people can only think of the ones that failed. To actually keep both males and females entertained during a romantic comedy is an enormous feat. A truly great romantic comedy has fantastic leading actors, outfits to fit the part, and bond that is built throughout the movie. When considering these aspects, two movies come to mind that hit the marks for great romantic comedies, Hitch and The Wedding Ringer. Although both are two of the best romantic comedies available, Hitch rises above and beyond when it comes to making the perfect romantic comedy.
For example Patrick Verona was overly nice, trying to get Katherina’s attention because of the bet, Petruchio did the same thing except there was no bet involved, Petruchio was flirting at first, saying “sweet” things to her. Another similarity they both have is the reason why they were both trying to tame the “shrew”, as it said above, Patrick was taming Katherina because of a bet he made, Patrick basically wanted the money and asked for a larger amount of cash as the bet went along. In the play Petruchio was planning to marry Katherine because of the amount of money she and her family owned, but he made it seemed that he was really in love with her in the beginning when he met Baptista. Before Petruchio went to meet Baptista & Katherine, he was talking to Hortensio & Grumio on planning to marry Katherine because of wealth & other stuff, in the middle of that conversation Hortensio offered to go with him to meet Baptista since the rule of marrying Bianca (Katherine’s sister) was she was not allowed to marry anyone until Katherine found a man first and married him, so Hortensio wanted to go with Petruchio tp approach that moment he had after Hortensio asks Baptista to be with his daughter,
Juliet too, shares similar feelings which is displayed in her soliloquy, thinking of Romeo: “My only love sprung from my only hate!” (Shakespeare 50). Without having really gotten to know him on a profound and romantic level, she can already claim that she is in love with him despite their families ' fighting. Friar Lawrence even anticipates that something bad may occur due to the couple’s ardent passion, as he says, “These violent delights have violent ends,...” (Shakespeare 92). These feelings of affection can be chalked up to the teenage brain in love. As explained by Dr. Helen Fisher, "When you 're in the throes of this romantic love, it 's overwhelming, you 're out of control, you 're irrational" (Carey 1).
