At this point, Juliet still hasn’t told her mother that she loves Romeo, leave alone that she actually married him already. Lady Capulet believes that Juliet cries because of the death of Tybalt. This shows the partial maturity of Juliet. A mature person would have confronted lady Capulet with their true feelings on the matter. When lady Capulet tells Juliet that Juliet is to marry Paris on Thursday, she tries to change it by saying that she can’t properly marry him, as Paris has not even courted her.
Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865). Here Romeo tells Tybalt, that he loves him. Romeo does this with no thought about their last names, he is so in love with Tybalt’s cousin that all of a sudden he forgets about the two family’s bad blood. Friar warns Romeos about rushing into a relationship “Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast” (Shakespeare 847).
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). She is saying that if this individual she just met is married, she rather die than marry anyone else, but when she gets told that its Romeo she knows he's not married but it is her worst rival. So Juliet could use this to escape marrying Paris, but also escape the family feuds. They weren’t in love because they were using this marriage to escape their families and other
“A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, / … / The fearful passage of their death-marked love / And the continuance of their parents’ rage, / Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove.” (the prologue). The prologue of Romeo and Juliet tells us Romeo and Juliet’s fate of this untimely death has already been decided at birth. However, Shakespeare includes different places where their destiny could have been turned around. A person’s fate is never already decided because it’s that individual’s choice to do whatever they choose to do. An examination of Romeo and Juliet reveals that a person’s fate is not decided at birth and can be changed based on their decisions.
His beloved Rosaline, which he could not make absent in his mind, has suddenly vanished from existence the moment Romeo gets a glimpse of the pretty face of Juliet. Romeo forgets about Rosaline when he sees Juliet, as he states “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight, for I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”(18.104.22.168). Romeo notices how his love for Rosaline was not true, yet he still chooses to “love” someone new immediately, although this is just the same as his previous “love.” His judgement of the love he feels is based merely on beauty, although this is physical attraction, which heh does not understand. Romeo and Juliet are young and have not
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.
Because of this “forbidden love,” they keep their relationship a secret from their parents. The lack of the parent’s caring and involvement in their children’s lives leads to once preventable events. Romeo becomes exiled, and Juliet finds herself forced into an arranged marriage. These instances lead to their tragic end: “. .
Friar Lawrence irresponsibly married Romeo and Juliet after the naïve couple only knew each other for 24 hours. Friar Lawrence’s irresponsible nature involved: hiding the marriage from the feuding families, advising Juliet to fake her death, along with abandoning suicidal Juliet when she needed guidance and adult supervision. All of these poor decisions resulted to the suicide of Romeo and Juliet. When one thinks of the title Friar, the title itself is a title of higher expectations. As a Friar, Friar Lawrence does not use his ability and skills wisely to marry the madly in love couple.
Some would argue that love conquers all and that the lack of trust should not dissolve a marriage. However, that is not the case in Othello’s marriage and in most marriages worldwide. When their trust was broken, Othello turned against Desdemona and was unable to see her as the person he once married. In the beginning of the play Othello tells Iago Desdemona had became” [his] soul’s joy,” since they met and believes their marriage will last (II.I.200). Even though Othello believe Desdemona would be loyal to him because,” she had eyes and chose [him]” they still hadn’t been married for a long time when their trust was tested (III.III.194).However, when
Another example of a soliloquy is in Act 4 Scene 3. Juliet’s wedding with Paris was to take place the next day. She could not betray Romeo and marry a man that she did not love. She talked to herself and the audience for a while contemplating taking the potion rather than using a dagger to stab herself. She says, “What if this mixture do not work at all?
The big day has arrived, it 's the last chance. If the family could accept one outsider then they could accept Tory they just could not see his potential. He was soon to be married to their daughter they would have to accept him one way or another. In the novel, it is not made certain that if the family finally accepts Troy or not. Reisman thinks that the family has accepted Troy she states “Troy, who is socially and culturally inferior to the Fairchilds, should feel totally rejected.
