As the Montague and Capulet families have an ongoing feud, and Romeo and Juliet belong to opposite sides, it is inevitable that Juliet will have to choose between her family and husband at some point. Thus, when a situation such as this one occurs, her loyalty has proven to be more towards Romeo than her parents. To begin, one instance in which Juliet shows her loyalty to Romeo is when her parents want her to marry Count Paris, but she defies them and marries Romeo instead. She blatantly goes against their wishes and stays loyal to Romeo. While arguing with her parents on the issue, Juliet says, “‘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.
The feud also caused the fights which led to Romeo’s banishment. Friar Lawrence allowed Romeo and Juliet to get married in secret which caused conflict in the story. The feud and Friar Laurence are to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The feud prevented Romeo and Juliet from being happily married. In Act I scene v,Juliet says, “My only love, sprung from my only hate!
Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
The Unacceptable Love The love story that shows how love is impossible between the boy and the girl who are from the two families which are the enemies in Verona. Lots of troubles and problems come from their love issue. In the play “Romeo and Juliet” written by William Shakespeare, the story about unacceptable love of Romeo and Juliet. Eventhough Romeo and Juliet know that their love is unacceptable for many reasons, but they still continue their love’s passion. First, Romeo and Juliet come from the families that hate each others.
Throughout the play, fate presents itself in different situations, many times preventing the couple from being together. Their love is forbidden because they belong to families who despise each other, preventing Romeo and Juliet from making their love publicly known. Fate gives an inability for the couple to be together. In other ways, such as the miscommunication between Romeo and Friar Laurence after Romeo is banished from Verona, and Paris supposing to marry Juliet (after Romeo and Juliet get married) further show fate separating Romeo and Juliet (ROM.
Personal desire and choosing to conform is a battle between right and wrong, shown in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, because Juliet chooses Romeo over everyone else, pursuing what she wants to make herself happy, but everyone else in the family views this as wrong. Juliet wants to do the right thing, which is doing what makes her happy. Lady Capulet wants to know Juliet’s idea of getting married but Juliet does not want to get married, which upsets her family and the nurse. “It is an honour that I dream not of.” (Act 1, Scene 3, line 68). Juliet feels that she is too young and too immature to get married, she wants to explore what makes her happy.
The reading states, “I would like to baptize myself under a new name, a name more like the real me, the one nobody sees. Esperanza as Lisandra or Maritza or Zeze the X. Yes. Something like Zeze the X will do” (Cisneros 5). She believes that her getting a new name will take away from how society feels about her name and will not judge her as much.
This is indeed one of the worst decisions Romeo makes during the play, for in the end, it was really fate which caused the “Star-Crossed Lovers” to first meet. If Romeo had taken the time to completely evaluate how precarious it was to attend a party hosted by the Montagues largest foe, he would’ve resisted going to the event, preventing the feud between him and Tybalt, and causing him to never meet Juliet, who was to be married to Paris. Poorly thought out decisions were made between Romeo and Juliet, when they fell in love without getting to know each other first. Romeo even explains the danger and agony of love when he says “Is love a tender thing? It is too rough/ Too rude, too boist’rous, and it pricks like a thorn”(I.iv.25-26).
They also would talk things through, but they both have their flaws. Romeo falls in love with the beauty of women and doesn 't even get a chance to get to know them. While Juliet doesn 't want to be married, for fear that her marriage will be like her parents, where there 's no love expect for their child. So Romeo and Juliet aren 't model citizens and have their flaws and they both seem to leap before looking. Both Romeo and Juliet seem to act hast in their desertions, which,
In addition, the Romeo and Juliet text expresses, “‘O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name; Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I'll no longer be a Capulet’” (Act 2.2). Which explains how Juliet recognizes that their love is forbidden and incredibly frowned upon, yet she is optimistic.
Nothing Is As Easy As It Seems In Shakespeare’s famous play, “Midsummer Night’s Dream”, Egeus- Hermias’ father- was forcing her to marry a man by the name of Demetrius, even though she is madly in love with Lysander. Throughout this time, women did not have the choice to marry who they wanted to unless it was there father’s choice. Also it was stated that the Athenian law was the have the death penalty upon women who refuses to marry the person of their fathers choice. Hermia was determined not to marry Demetrius, so her father made her address the Duke of the Kingdom who had granted her three choices. They were- either to marry Demetrius, become a nun, or to be put to death.
Perhaps Emily is a murderer who feels like the world owes her something in William Faulkners "A rose for Emily", but it does not mean she doesn’t have to live by the rules the rest of society must follow. The narrator or narrators emphasis on Emilys traits of being a hermit, antisocial, once entitled aristocrat show that anyone that knows her would assume she may have mental issues. Faulkner makes it clear that Emily is not a saint and serious consequences have resulted due to her never being held responsible for her own
Especially when she didn’t like Paris and she had no intentions of marrying him. I think she should be punished because she is one of the main reasons Juliet and Romeo couldn’t get married. All mostly because she wanted Juliet to share all of Paris’s money with her. Which is the most selfish act of all and a huge reason I believe she should be
“The blame Game” If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty. Friar laurence was responsible for marrying Romeo and Juliet. The nurse and them three was the only one’s that knew about it. If they wouldn’t have never kept the marriage a secret the prince wouldn’t have Romeo banned from the town and Romeo and Juliet could’ve lived happily ever after.
This plan was made because of how desperate Juliet was to see Romeo again. He wanted to reassure Juliet that she would once again see Romeo but, this plan was made on the spot with evaluation in it. Once the plan of meeting up with Romeo does not go according and Romeo is dead, Friar Laurence has no backup plan with Juliet. .”Thy husband in thy bosom there lies dead; And Paris too. Come, I’ll dispose of thee Among a sisterhood of holy nuns”(V.iii.168-170).
