These two “star crossed lovers”, as the book called them, were not in love but in lust. Romeo and Juliet's relationship is based on lust because of how long they knew each other, their age, and their forbidden love. A relationship based on true love takes time to develop. The text states, “Now Romeo is beloved and loves again, Alike bewitched by the charm of looks”(Shakespeare 2.Prologue.5-6). Romeo and Juliet had just met and they were already bewitched by each other (2.Prologue.6).
At the beginning of the play, Romeo wanted to keep himself out of the light because the woman he loved, Rosaline, did not love him. Later, he is comparing Juliet to the Sun as a bright light, since Juliet is now the one true love of his life. Then, when the two lovers were together on Juliet’s balcony, they became saddened when it began to become light out, for Romeo would have to leave if he didn’t want to be killed by Juliet’s family. Then, Capulet has heart full of light because he is so excited for the wedding of Juliet and Paris. Finally, in Juliet’s resting place, he was saying that Juliet was lighting up the entire tomb with her beauty.
Friar Lawrence agrees to get Romeo and Juliet married This was a happy day for Romeo and Juliet, So smile the heavens upon this holy act That after-hours with sorrow chide us not. (I.vii.1-2) Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry Juliet even though their family is enemies, he is very confused and against the idea, but eventually gets them both married because he thinks that it will cause an end to their family feud. The Montagues and the Capulets hated each other for a long period of time, by marrying the both young lovers he thinks that both families will be in peace. Friar Laurence has sacrificed by marrying both of them without any of their parent's permission. Therefore Friar Lawrence gets them married because of what he thinks might
The story of “Romeo And Juliet” has many love types. One of the main types of love shown in Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet is Unrequited love. In act one scene one of Romeo And Juliet, Romeo states, “ Out of her favor, where I am in love.” Romeo is talking to Benvolio about how Rosaline doesn’t love him, and in turn he is sad. This is Unrequited love because the love between Romeo and Rosaline is not mutual. On lines 213-215 of act one scene one Romeo states, “ She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow do I live dead that live to tell it now.” Rosaline has sworn not to love, so Romeo claims this has left him feeling dead.
After talking to each other they instantly kiss and fall in love. When Romeo and Juliet fall in love, you should get to know the person, but Romeo and Juliet only had a conversation during a party. In truth, both Romeo and Juliet don’t even know each other 's identity. Juliet had asked her nurse to “Go ask his name-if he is married, my grave is like to be my wedding bed. (1.5,134-135)” Juliet had already fallen for him but didn’t even know that he was a Montague, her enemy.
Romeo and Juliet claim that they love each other, but that isn’t possible. How can they possibly be in love when they have only known each other for a few short hours before declaring their undying love and uniting in Holy Matrimony? Love is a limitless and condition-less devotion, based on an intimate knowledge, to another person, whereas lust is an emotional obsession based on physical chemistry and appearance. Lust initiates a desire to acquaint ourselves with someone, but our interactions with and increased knowledge of a person are what cause us to love. Romeo and Juliet definitely lusted after each other.
Mercutio: My invocation is fair and honest. In his mistress' name I conjure only but to raise up him. (2.1.27-29) Mercutio’s witty statement provides an exquisite example of dramatic irony because he and Benvolio reference Romeo’s mistress, with Rosaline in mind, and they are oblivious to the fact that Romeo now loves Juliet. Shakespeare incorporates dramatic irony at this specific point in the rising action as a discrete message to the audience that even those who remain super close to Romeo and Juliet are not aware of their secret romantic relationships. Two of Romeo’s best friends remain ou of the loop and are not informed when the love-srtricken Romeo find love and gets married.
Other people believe this is not true love. But, some of us believe it is true love. The feelings that Romeo and Juliet had for each other were feelings of true love because Juliet rejected to marry Paris because she loved Romeo, they both killed themselves because the other one was dead, and they were both willing to leave their families for each other. One reason that the feelings that Romeo and Juliet had for each other were feelings of true love is that Juliet rejected to marry Paris because she loved Romeo. In Act 3,
Romeo is indecisive because when he goes to the Capulet’s party, he is in love with another girl, but when he sees Juliet he is now in love with her. In general, an indecisive person will change their mind a lot. This shows that Romeo is indecisive because he was in love with another girl and he changed his mind when he got to the party and saw Juliet. Romeo shows that he is a lover when he decides to marry Juliet, in Act 2 Scene 6. He had just met Juliet the night before, and they fall in love so they decided to get married the next afternoon.
