This is false because they may seem to be in love, however, Romeo noticeably only loves Juliet for her looks based off of his comparison of her to celestial objects whilst expressing his love. Moreover, Juliet is uncertain of her feelings throughout their entire story, but because of Romeo’s foolhardy love for Juliet, they progressed with their relationship at too fast of a pace, causing numerous accounts of danger and mistakes, resulting in a flawed relationship that sadly ended in both their deaths. If they were to get to know each other better and take their love more slowly, it would show that they are truly in love, but sadly the course they chose to partake, made for inevitable doom in their
Before long, the Prince finally realizes how much it takes to have love and peace. Romeo and Juliet take their sweat, tears, fights, and even death till the end. Not to mention, readers may question if Romeo and Juliet have an option to avoid this, but because of free will they have, the path they take leads them to an unsuspecting occurrence. Furthermore, before the marriage, Friar Lawrence clearly advises Romeo that it is dangerous to fall in love so quickly, but Romeo is so eager to just have
An example of her selflessness can be seen when she says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou will not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”, where her desperation and readiness to lose her own titles and name to be with Romeo prove that what she is after is love, and not his name or the prestige that comes with it. Furthermore, Juliet is a young and extremely volatile character, and this is never better demonstrated than in this scene, where Juliet falls in love with Romeo instantly and all but takes her marriage vows in the following 30 minutes. However, all of a sudden, Juliet tells Romeo that she finds the contract “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden”, which means Juliet suddenly has hesitations about their love, and wishes for some time to go by and ensure that it will last. Next, when they are in the process of saying their goodbyes, Juliet expresses her wish to have him gone, “And yet no farther than a wanton’s bird.”, which shows how much she wishes for his proximity, though she then says a few lines farther down that “(Juliet) should kill thee with much cherishing” with which she means that she cherishes him so that she could metaphorically kill him, and is worried her love will cause him troubles. This could cause the audience to begin to wonder whether their wish for mutual
Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
Love and lust two different Dr.Judith Orloff is the definition she explained is “pure lust is based solely on physical attraction and fantasy and often dissipates”and Love defined by researchers suggests “the feeling of intimacy, emotional connection and closeness is central to all types of love.” .Romeo and Juliet are not really in love both Romeo and Juliet show only a physical attraction rather than an emotional connection that can only be found by truly getting to know one another and takes time. Romeo and Juliet act towards each other that can only be described as lust not love. The reason why they are not in love is that Romeo was already in love with her before he
One may argue that the love between the characters is artificial. Romeo and Juliet’s love is artificial because their love was built around physical attraction and their love was rushed. When Romeo makes an appearance at the Capulet party, He spots Juliet across the room. He claims “Did my heart love till now”. As Romeo first notices Juliet, he immediately insist that he has fallen in love.
He seems to crave the idea of being in love more than Rosaline herself, and his words show that he is inexperienced in love. But when he meets Juliet, he realizes how insincere his love was, and is immediately smitten by her. “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight!/ For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”(1.5.50). His sudden change of love and the fact that they share a kiss without knowing the other’s name shows the speed of love.
Love takes time to develop, more time than a few hours after meeting someone at a party. Romeo’s desire for love makes him feel as though he is in love with any beautiful girl he happens to talk to. With this in mind, Romeo’s love and belonging needs are not met since he desires to be in love. Juliet happened to be the next girl that walked into his life, and neither of them happened to be meeting their love and belonging needs. Both of them desired to be in love, so it was easy for them to think they were in love with each other.
It is humorous that Romeo replied, My life were better ended by their hate/ than death prorogued waiting if they love”(2.2.86-87). This shows that Romeo and Juliet truly love each other, which need a certain level of love. Clearly, Romeo and Juliet believe that they are in love and I agree with that. Love at first sight happens to have an unexpected relationship, even though many opponents disagree that love doesn 't exist. Once we understand that there is love at first sight, we will be careful to what we choose.
Romeo expresses his love for Rosaline by saying how much greater her beauty is than other women’s. When Benvolio is trying to convince Romeo to forget about Rosaline and look at other women Romeo says, “what doth her beauty serve but as a note/ where I may read who passed that passing fair” (1.1.244-245). Romeo is unwilling to see other women because of his infatuation with Rosaline. Although he refuses to go after other women Romeo does not consider waiting to see if Rosaline switches her decision. Romeo uses the word passing to suggest that Rosaline is out of reach for him because she is becoming a nun.
