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.
There was no love in this relationship, but rather idiocy and lust and maybe even the want for love, but no actual love. All throughout the play Romeo claims he was in love with someone first Rosaline and then all of a sudden Juliet, if Romeo was to truly love either of these ladies he would not have been able to switch between them so quickly, who’s to say Juliet wasn’t just a rebound? Friar Lawrence said “ Young men feel with their eyes, not their hearts” and while this may not be true in all cases, it is very true in this case. As soon as Romeo layed eyes on Juliet he fell in “love” with her which is completely unrealistic. Romeo didn’t know a single thing about her, even as little as her own name.
Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down (Act 1, Scene 4, Page 2). Before going to crash at the Capulet’s party. Mercutio tells Romeo to cheer up because of his love failure with Rosalina, since she’s a virgin. So he advices him to be rough with love as the to him. I suppose that Mercutio was trying help Romeo get over Rosalina, since he delined him.
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).
Since neither of them truly loved each other the love didn't last it was false love. It wasn't true love because puck put the spell on Titania. So she didn't truly love bottom it was just the spell so the love ended. Theses examples show that love isn't always easy and some people might want to stop you from loving someone. But if that person is your true love you should pursue them no matter what.

Power of love Romeo , romeo , romeo and Juliet , Juliet , Juliet was once were lived in seprate house and didn’t even know each other romeo loved another girl and her name was Rosaline.

It affects many of the events and actions done by the characters. Juliet and Romeo are both adolescent; Romeo is 16 years old while Juliet is 13 years old. In the beginning of the play, Juliet’s attitude towards marriage is that of dismissal. She waves off that her parents, particularly her father, who wants her to marry Paris, a well-respected county. Juliet’s reluctance to get married shows that she does not feel ready for commitment, especially committing herself into a relationship with a person she hardly knows.
This quote, which was hours after Romeo first met Juliet, explicitly shows how quick Romeo was to immediately fall for Juliet and want her to be his almost immediately. It is human instinct to want to jump immediately into romance when you truly begin to like someone, but by following this rush, Romeo only ended up hurting Juliet and his chances together. This could have been simply evaded by moving at a slow, calculated pace to appease their families and also to sort out a plan where the two can escape together. Following instinct only lead them to
This shows that this is not like the love that Romeo had for Rosalind which seemed to be a silly crush. That disappeared once he saw Juliet. In my opinion Romeo and Juliet’s love is not real. Romeo was just lusting after Juliet because he could not get Rosalind and Juliet was easier to get. Shakespeare uses a lot of religious imagery in this
