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. When Juliet rejects marrying Paris, her parents get mad and tell her that she has to marry Paris anyways. “I pray you tell my lord and father, madam, I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear It shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris. These are news indeed (III.v.
In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the play takes place in the city of Verona where two feuding families, the Capulets and the Montagues, live. Romeo and Juliet come from these discorded families, Juliet is a Capulet and Romeo is a Montague. The two young adults meet and fall in love at a Capulet party. However, their fate is not the most ideal ending. The two lovers take their own life, but who is responsible for their deaths is a question one might ask.
Love can cause people to sacrifice everything for the one they care most deeply for, sometimes the sacrifice even results in death. In Shakespeare’s Othello, Desdemona and Othello secretly get married, causing an uproar from her father, who threatens her death for her lying. However, their love prevails and they move to Othello’s new position, only to have a seed of doubt planted in Othello. A man tells Othello that Desdemona has been cheating on him with his second in command which is a lie, yet Othello falls for it. The lie slowly tears Othello apart and causes him to ruin his marriage.
Friar Laurence’s rash action in marrying Juliet, his hasty plan to avert Juliet from an unwanted marriage with Paris, and his failure to get his message delivered to Romeo in time all contribute to the death of Romeo and Juliet. When Romeo goes to see Friar Laurence after his new found love, they immediately begin to talk about marriage. Friar Laurence sees the opportunity to unite the two disputing families by marrying them. When Friar Laurence and Romeo are discussing a possible marriage, he tells Romeo “ wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast” (Shakespeare.2.3.95-96). Friar Laurence agrees to marry them knowing the danger in making such an immense commitment in just 24 hours.
With the feud between Romeo and Juliets opposite families, one could say that their young love is set up to fail before it even begins. The Capulets from Juliet’s side of the family and the Montagues from Romeo’s dislike each other with a passion. This makes it difficult for Romeo and Juliet to see each other. This also forces them to marry in secret by Friar Lawrence. In the beginning of the play Romeo confesses his love to Juliet to a friend.
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. If they had never urged Romeo to go to the party, he most likely wouldn 't have gone to the party, and had never met Juliet, thus stopping the unfortunate events that were to happen next. Another example would be the event where Mercutio gets killed by Tybalt. Since Romeo’s best friend dies, he gets extremely angered, causing him to kill Tybalt. This event could have been easily avoided by Mercutio choosing his actions differently and wisely to avoid getting killed by Tybalt, or he could have calmed down instead of engaging in violence.
During Juliet’s conversation with Lady Capulet regarding the death of Tybalt, Capulet walks in to share news of Juliet's suitor, Paris. While Juliet appreciates the gesture of her father find a potential husband, she politely declines due to her relationship with Romeo. Capulet is outraged and disowns Juliet for apparent stubbornness, but Juliet attempts to justify her decision: “Proud can I never be of what I hate, but thankful even for hate that is meant love” (3.5.152-153). Juliet explains that she dreads the idea of Capulet arranging for Paris to marry her, secretly due to her complications with Romeo, but loves that same idea because she understands that her father’s intentions were only of care. Juliet is able to be empathetic to her father’s temporary anger since she knew it is only a result of his deep love and support.

In addition to the nurse having boundaries with Juliet, Juliet seeks affection and attention since she does not always receive it from her parents. Girls tend to experience more negative emotions due to family issues (). Manipulative parents destroy relationships with teenagers by not giving their children more independence nor respect. Juliet’s parents continually force Juliet to marry Paris, even when she clearly has no attraction towards him. (Kalish).
