The first clear portrayal of this theme is in Act I Scene II, when Lord Capulet is talking to Paris of marrying Juliet. This is the first time we hear of Juliet losing her free will. “Let two more summers wither in their pride/Ere we may think she to be ripe for a bride. (I.II, 10-11)” Here Juliet’s father is telling Paris that he wishes to wait to marry her off to him, because she is too young. In return Paris responds by saying, “Younger than she are happy mothers made.
Remembering back to plot in Romeo and Juliet, Romeo states that his objective in traveling to the party was to rendezvous his ex- girlfriend - Rosaline. “At this same ancient feast of the Capulet’s, Sups the fair Rosaline whom thou so lovest…” (Shakespeare 11). After he arrives at the party his initial intention seems to disappear, and thereafter the party, we never learn of the name Rosaline again. Subsequently, when any reader understands this pattern that so many writers use, noticing it within other works of literature will be fairly
From the moment he sees her at the Capulets' 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, Romeo felt heartbroken because of a girl named Rosaline, who didn't love him.
Romeo and Juliet Teenagers have a different outlook on love compared to adults, they seem to take love too seriously or they take it as a joke. In Romeo and Juliet they take the thought of love above and beyond, considering that Juliet is only thirteen years old. Somethings never change, today's society still does the same exact thing. the amount of suicidal impulses in Romeo and Juliet is horrible to see people do and say. For example from the book Juliet said “I will never be satisfied with romeo, until I see him dead, is my poor heart broken by my cousin”.
After knowing Romeo for only a couple hours Juliet states,”Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow, by one that I’ll procure to come to thee, where and what time thou wilt perform the rite; and all my fortunes at thy foot I’ll lay and follow thee my lord throughout the world” (II, II, 144-148). Their sex hormones have caused them to strive and decide that they have found love after only a short period of time. During this short period of time, both of them have confessed their true feeling of affection for each other, and Juliet has agreed to follow Romeo everywhere he goes. Hormones have affected the choice of love for both teenagers and ultimately led to the choice of getting married without thinking about the decision or the consequences first. The selection of finding someone to love and acting upon it is caused by hormones in teenage years.
He tells him all about Juliet and how the two are to get married. Friar Laurence believes that Romeo is acting hastily, because only last night he had been heartbroken by Rosaline. Despite his thoughts, Friar Laurence agrees to marry the two teens in hope that the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets will end. “ So smile the heavens…” (Act 2, Scene 6, Line 1) When Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet he did not know that later, because of certain actions in the play the two young kids being married is part of the reason they
In my opinion, Romeo and Juliet were infatuated with each other and were acting irrationally when they got married. Both Romeo and Juliet are teenagers and were not old enough to be “in love”. I feel this way because Juliet was about to marry someone who her parents were making her marry. She simply married Romeo because she had feelings for him and did not want to marry Paris. Romeo was lovesick for Rosaline and thinks that when he sees Juliet it is love at first sight.
As Romeo first notices Juliet, he immediately insist that he has fallen in love. Both, Romeo and Juliet, base their love off of physical attraction for one another. Neither of the two characters met each other before they claimed to be in love. Romeo and Juliet’s love could be considered artificial because it was rushed. Within only a few hours romeo and juliet commit their lives to one another: “We need you now, to read us both our wedding vows”.
Benvolio suggests that Romeo will move on from his past lover, Rosaline, and find a new girl. When Juliet sees Romeo for the first time as he leaves the Capulet 's party, she asks the nurse to find out information about him. For starters, in the play Juliet says, " Go ask his name._ If he be married, my grave is like to be my wedding bed." Juliet means she will rather die unmarried because she cannot love anyone else. This ironically foreshadows her death if she marries him.
Juliet misses Romeo so she goes to Friar Laurence to devise a plan. “Take thou this vital, being then in bed, … thou shalt continue two-and forty hours, And then awake as from a pleasant sleep. Now, when the bridegroom in the morning comes To rouse thee from thy bed, there art thou dead.. In the meantime, against thou shalt awake, Shall Romeo by my letter know our drift; And hither shall he come; and he and I will watch thy waking and that very night Shall Romeo bear thee hence to Mantua” (IV.i.103-127). This plan was made because of how desperate Juliet was to see Romeo again.
