In the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, we follow our protagonist, Janie, through a journey of self-discovery. We watch Janie from when she was a child to her adulthood, slowly watching her ideals change while other dreams of hers unfortunately die. This is shown when Jane first formulates her idea of love, marriage, and intimacy by comparing it to a pear tree; erotic, beautiful, and full of life. After Janie gets married to her first spouse, Logan Killicks, she doesn’t see her love fantasy happening, but she waits because her Nanny tells her that love comes after marriage. Janie, thinking that Nanny is wise beyond her years, decides to wait.

They fight back to Juliet’s emotions and anger by threatening to disown her if she didn’t go through with the wedding. Capulet tells her that she will have to “Graze where [she] will, [she] shall not house with [him],” (3.5.198) and “... hang, beg, die in the streets,” (3.5.202).

But because Juliet doesn’t have much for close family or friends besides her parents, nurse, and Romeo, it’d be tragic to her to be told to die in the streets.
