Quick decisions have harmful consequences and negatively impact to those who make these choices. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet’s families experience many negative consequences from their decisions.

This play tells of how Romeo and Juliet fell in “love”. At the beginning Juliet tells us that she is against marriage if there is no love. After she meets Romeo she believes what is lust is truly love. This lust is what leads to their marriage, which Juliet proposes, and to their deaths. In the play Romeo and Juliet the playwright, William Shakespeare, helps us understand that lust is a violent form of love, by characterizing Juliet as someone who gives in to lust, thus leading to her death.
Shakespeare shows love is complicated by Romeo and Rosaline. On page 909, “Ope her lap” Romeo wants to sleep with Rosalina. Romeo thinks that this is love but it is not. He will not be with Rosaline if he just wants that. On Page 909, “Teach me How I should forget to think!” Romeo is sad and depressed that Rosaline doesn 't love him. They both want to be together but for different reasons. Romeo thinks this is true love but it is lust. He is young and this also makes love complicated.
The thesis our group made is “In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare shows that the power of love causes people to act rashly and illogically.” This is shown on many different occasions in the book. Whenever one of the characters falls in love with someone they go off and want to get married instantly. If they can not get married then they will get severely depressed and become suicidal. This can be seen when Paris says, “younger than she have happy mothers made”(I.ii 12). When Paris first met Juliet, which was not that long ago, he fell in love. He than instantly wants to marry her, despite not having known her for very long and her being only thirteen. Here Paris makes a rash decision of choosing who he wants to spend the rest of his life
Alan Watts once said, “Never pretend to a love which you do not actually feel, for love is not ours to command.” (brainyquotes.com). Watts is saying that we can't just say that we love someone, we have to feel our heart swell with the love we have for that person. In William Shakespeare's, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet are not truly in love because they automatically fall ‘in love’ after seeing each other once, they decide to get married a few hours after they meet and they are too immature to actually know what love is .
Acting quickly when making critical decisions without thinking logically can have severe consequences in all acts of life. In Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, there are several times throughout the play when a character lets their emotions get the best of them. Almost every time someone makes the decision to act on impulse, it causes a chain reaction that gets worse as the play goes on. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, the characters don’t give themselves enough time to think about their actions, and their impulsive actions lead to Romeo and Juliet’s marriage, fights between the families, and the deaths of the two lovers.
Do humans have free will? Or, is our every action decided on by other people? In reality, almost every decision we make with our own individual conscious. The play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, is about two lovers, Romeo and Juliet, from rival families whose love caused unfortunate consequences for everyone around them. Romeo and Juliet were tragic heroes whose deaths are caused by their own faults and inability to make decisions without minor characters telling them what to do.
Love, is an intense feeling of deep affection for someone. Lust, is a passionate or overmastering desire or craving. Many think that these two words mean the same thing because they both include deep feeling. For Romeo and Juliet, however, these two simple words were completely different. 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.
Many choices in Romeo & Juliet lead to Romeo and Juliet’s deaths, but the most responsible are the decisions of Romeo and Juliet. Even though the choices of people like Friar Laurence, Tybalt, and Lord Capulet lead to the deaths of Romeo & Juliet, the choices Romeo and Juliet make throughout the play ultimately leads to their death because of Romeo and Juliet’s decision to be married and Romeo’s decision to go to the party.
Romeo and Juliet's marriage is nothing but impulsive. They become married not even a day after they meet because of their physical attraction to one another instead of actual love. This relationship brings many issues, essentially ending their lives. Friar Laurence had warned them of this careless act. “Wisely, and slow. They stumble that/ run fast” (Shakespeare.2.3.102-103). However, the Friar also plays a part in their thoughtless marriage as he hopes marrying them will end the Capulet, Montague feud, taking little time to think through the consequences. Juliet too acts on impulse as she knew very little about the outside world and deciding to marry the first boy she was attracted to. If Romeo and Juliet had not acted on this impulsivity and had instead waited and told their parents, most of their
When Juliet and Romeo were faced with a conflict, they would act based upon their emotions rather than coming up with rational solutions that would benefit both parties. They were only thinking in the moment, and not of the future consequences. Unfortunately, their rash decisions led to tragic incidents and the deaths of friends, family, and themselves. The problematic impulsiveness from the main characters could be taken as a moral, that love can control one’s mind to behave recklessly, leading to troubling
Mark Overby says, “Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.” Love, a magnificent and wonderful emotion, not only includes admiration, but requires sacrifice. William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, revolves around the children of two rival families, the Montagues and the Capulets. This feud even has the citizens of the town, Verona, involved in this ancient rivalry. The children, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, fall deeply into a love that is forbidden. The young lovers are willing to do anything to be with one another; even if that means they have to sacrifice their lives for each other. In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare challenges the stereotypical teenage romance, proving that young
