Scene 3. Line 65). Friar Laurence tries to keep romeo on the right path and he is always trying to look out for the best for Romeo.

Both romeo and juliet believed that they could not live without one another so when romeo mistakenly thought juliet died, he killed himself which led to the death of juliet. Throughout the story, the recurring problem of the rising tensions between the two families always makes things harder and harder for romeo and juliet. Both romeo and juliet hate being montagues and capulets, and it is very clear and easy to see this because it is shown during the story when Juliet says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.’’
Instead of conforming to the expectations their family and society places on them, Romeo and Juliet choose to follow their hearts and stay together. Romeo and Juliet also both give up welfare and security in order to be with each other and ultimately give up their lives, the greatest sacrifice. Romeo and Juliet rebel against all of their obligations to their family and society in order to follow their true feelings. Instead of marrying Paris, a wealthy and handsome count, Juliet defies her father’s wishes. Shakespeare writes, “Thursday is near.
Themes of Romeo and Juliet~ The Force of Fate The two star crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, had a fate that they could not escape. The play Romeo and Juliet was written by William Shakespeare.
Although both of them grew up being taught to hate one another, the night they first met they fell madly in love. The fact that they fell in love despite their families teaching them to hate each other proves once again, that conflicts of that matter can only end destructively. Although both Romeo and Juliet knew their last names weren’t of much importance they still had their doubts of whether they should continue their love. This is depicted in the quote “My only love sprung from my only hate…” This quote shows how Juliet feels upon learning that her only love is the son of the people she’s been taught to hate her whole
Both the audience and Friar Lawrence are surprised by this, as only twenty four hours earlier Romeo was in love with Rosaline and depressed that she did not love him back. According to the TED Talk: “Insight into the Teenage Brain,” the area of the brain that anticipates major consequences is still developing in teenagers (Galvan). Therefore, Romeo and Juliet seem to rush into marriage because of their inability to think about any possible negative outcomes. Their underdeveloped prefrontal cortex may cause them to focus more on the
They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival.
Throughout The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet disobey their parents multiple times. Two examples are when Juliet rejects marrying Paris and when Romeo and Juliet get married. When Juliet rejects marrying Paris, her parents get mad and tell her that she has to marry Paris anyways. “I pray you tell my lord and father, madam, I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear It shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris. These are news indeed (III.v. 120-123)!”
In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Juliet's persistently changing feelings toward Romeo after she finds out that he killed Tybalt show that she has trouble deciding whether to abide as Romeo's wife or to be loyal to her family as a Capulet. Juliet is going back and forth between taking Romeo's side or her family's side and says; "But wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin? / That villain cousin would have killed my husband"(Shakespeare, 3.2.100-101). Juliet is having internal conflict to decide whether to be faithful to her family, or to her husband whom she is tied to in marriage. Juliet feels deceived because Romeo killed Tybalt
“Come weep with me, past hope, past care, past help.” -Juliet (IV.i.46) In this tragic love story, Juliet’s suffering is inarguably greater than Romeo’s. Juliet is highly distraught because of her parents’ discussion of an arranged marriage with County Paris, her acquaintance and immediate love relationship with a Montague enemy, and because she is a female living during a time period where she has little control over her future. Juliet’s connections to the County Paris show a conflict not only between husbands, but also throughout the Capulet family.
The definition of unconditional love is affection without any limitations, it can also be love without conditions. Most people might not believe in unconditional love, but in Romeo and Juliet's case, they might agree. Romeo and Juliet love each other unconditionally, so much so that they are willing to die for each other. Romeo and Juliet fell in love with each other at first sight. Even though some could say they are young and stupid, Juliet is a loyal and wise young lady who makes good choices.
The Tempest makes use of Prospero as an excellent protagonist in which you both feel sorry for him, and disagree with him, but this combined with the fact that he’s a sullen overprotective dad, makes him very similar to another one of Shakespeare’s characters, Lord Capulet. Their emotions control and guide the story to where it ultimately ends up, whether is be mostly good, like in “The Tempest”, or tragic, like in “Romeo and Juliet”. The usage of this type of character is what creates the plot, so no wonder Shakespeare uses it more than once. One may argue that Shakespeare was the originator of the overprotective father trope which is still used in media today, and both Prospero and Capulet seem to fall under its definition. They both believe
In the play “Romeo and Juliet” by Shakespeare, the writer uses Romeo and Juliet’s decision on secretly getting married to prove how teenagers without a fully developed brain can have different thinking than an adult’s thinking which can led to certain decisions being made. Romeo and Juliet are young teenagers who are feeling infatuation towards each other but mistaken the feeling for love, Romeo said “The exchange of thy love’s faithful vow for mine.” (Act 2, Scene 2). Romeo requested Juliet to say her vow which means he is proposing to her, even though they have just met each other and their families are hateful toward each other, many things can go wrong but Romeo and Juliet fail to realize the problems that can come up after the marriage.
