When Juliet sees Paris, he is asking all these questions about loving him, Juliet never tells him she is married causing him to want to still marry her. "That may be, sir, when I may be a wife" (IV.1.19). Juliet will not tell Paris how she feels causing him to want to marry her, if she just told him the truth about her feelings and wasn’t arrogant about it, she would still be alive. During this all Friar Laurence is there listening to Juliet talk to Paris and he never jumps in to tell Paris that she is married.

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). She is saying that if this individual she just met is married, she rather die than marry anyone else, but when she gets told that its Romeo she knows he's not married but it is her worst rival. So Juliet could use this to escape marrying Paris, but also escape the family feuds. They weren’t in love because they were using this marriage to escape their families and other
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
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.
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.
CAPULET But saying o 'er what I have said before. 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.

At this point, Juliet still hasn’t told her mother that she loves Romeo, leave alone that she actually married him already. Lady Capulet believes that Juliet cries because of the death of Tybalt. This shows the partial maturity of Juliet. A mature person would have confronted lady Capulet with their true feelings on the matter. When lady Capulet tells Juliet that Juliet is to marry Paris on Thursday, she tries to change it by saying that she can’t properly marry him, as Paris has not even courted her.

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.

“A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, / … / The fearful passage of their death-marked love / And the continuance of their parents’ rage, / Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove.” (the prologue). The prologue of Romeo and Juliet tells us Romeo and Juliet’s fate of this untimely death has already been decided at birth. However, Shakespeare includes different places where their destiny could have been turned around. A person’s fate is never already decided because it’s that individual’s choice to do whatever they choose to do. An examination of Romeo and Juliet reveals that a person’s fate is not decided at birth and can be changed based on their decisions.
