They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival. 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).
Through Romeo and Juliet’s acts of defiance and sacrifice, Shakespeare proves that while hate has the power to destroy and kill, love is even more powerful as it has the power to transform. Instead of conforming to the expectations their family and society places on them, Romeo and Juliet choose to follow their hearts and stay together. Romeo and Juliet also both give up welfare and security in order to be with each other and ultimately give up their lives, the greatest sacrifice. Romeo and Juliet rebel against all of their obligations to their family and society in order to follow their true feelings. Instead of marrying Paris, a wealthy and handsome count, Juliet defies her father’s wishes.
The love between two teens, the drama, and tragedy is a strong plot for Romeo and Juliet.

Throughout the play, Shakespeare suggested that it was better for Romeo and Juliet to follow their heart’s desires, even if it wasn't
. I am loved by beauteous Hermia” (Shakespeare.1.1.99-104). Demetrius disagreed with Lysander, and begged for love from Hermia, and wished for Lysander to stop acting like Hermia was his (Shakespeare.1.1.91-92). This was a complicated situation since Egeus would not give his daughter’s blessing to marry Lysander. Because of this, Lysander and Hermia ran off into the woods to be married.
Helena attempts to control Demetrius by betraying her friends in hopes that he would fall for her. Routinely, Helena tries to gain Demetrius’s love for instance, when she asserts, “Stay though thou kill me, sweet Demetrius!”(Shakespeare.86.1.70). Demetrius then responds with, “I change thee hence, and do not haunt me thus” (Shakespeare.87.1.70). Despite him being
/ Ah, word ill urged to one that is so ill! / In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman.”(1.1.197-199) Romeo only marries Juliet to ease the pain of heartbreak from Rosaline. Juliet isn’t in love with Romeo either. Just before Juliet meets Romeo for the first time she says she is not ready to be married. Her mother says, “LADY CAPULET: Marry, that 'marry ' is the very theme / I came to talk of.
She firmly tells her parents that she will not marry him and for that Lord Capulet says he will disown her if she dares to make such a decision. Juliet shows very less respect toward her parents and thinks that the time is in her favor. Juliet, in the beginning, would have showed much more respect that the Juliet at the end, and her change caused by her love. In conclusion, Juliet definitely changed a lot from how she was in the beginning of the book to how she acted towards the end of the book. She made decisions like committing suicide, fighting with her parents, and considering all the factors when making a decision.
The play commences with the courtship of multiple individuals. First, Shakespeare challenged the policies of the day was through examining the role of courtship using the single women of the play, Helena and Hermia. One way was through the belief that women should have the right to reject men. Hermia says: “I do entreat your grace to pardon me/I know not by what power I am made bold/Nor how it may concern my modesty In such a presence here to plead my thoughts;/But I beseech your grace that I may know/The worst that may befall me in this case/If I refuse to wed
The most defiant choice that Romeo and Juliet take for their love is their choice to be married. Juliet knows that her father or anyone in her family would not approve of this choice, but she still does it cause she loves Romeo. This love struck mentality drives Romeo and Juliet to be married and this secret marriage causes turmoil when Lord Capulet demands Juliet to marry Paris. Although Juliet knows that she is already married to Romeo loyal to him, not Paris and refuses to marry “doth Paris” (Shakespeare.III.v.145). Juliet only loves Romeo so this drives her to go to Friar Laurence whereupon attempted suicide he prescribes a potion that will make her appear dead.
The character i portrayed was Hermia who was from a midsummers night dream by William Shakespeare.The first part of the play is when Hermia is stressed and furious.

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare shows the difference between love and infatuation. Characters such as Orsino and Olivia give examples of infatuation, whereas characters such as Viola demonstrate a proper understanding of love. Orsino’s feelings and actions towards Olivia show that he is infatuated with her. Olivia repeatedly tells Orsino that she is not interested in marrying him, yet he continues to pursue her. If Orsino truly loved Olivia he would stop bothering her, as that is clearly what she wants.
Romeo and Juliet fell in love within mere seconds, without contemplating the consequences the love may cause. Willing to “Deny thy father and refuse thy name,” Juliet sacrifices her family for the adolescent romance (2.2.37). Passion blinds Juliet from reality, causing her to disregard their family complications. The young love promotes Juliet to risk her family for this young infatuation she possesses with Romeo. Ever since they laid eye’s on one another, Romeo and Juliet continuously formulate careless decisions, such as determining to get married.
