As Romeo and Juliet falls in love with each other within seconds, this displays the lack of development of the teenage brain and how it could cause Romeo and Juliet to fall victim to irrational, reward centered thinking. Juliet and Romeo 's decisions making exemplifies how the teenage brain is not yet fully developed. Still in act II Romeo and Juliet continue to act without thinking.
Romeo and Juliet are not in love with each other because just a day before they met, Romeo felt heartbroken because of a girl named Rosaline, who didn't love him. He pressures Juliet to profess her love to him, causing a rushed relationship, and after just barely meeting, they both agree to get married. At the beginning of this popular Shakespeare play, Romeo claims to be in love with a girl named Rosaline. He cries for days about her before he meets Juliet
Juliet, Lady and Lord Capulet’s only daughter needs to get married based on the parents deadline. Juliet being younger than fourteen years old was unexceriend in the real world and not getting what she deserves. Paris shows up to Capulet asking for Juliet’s hand in marriage, yet Capulet believes that they think it should be Juliet’s own decision. Capulet throws a feast with the beautiful ladies that live in Verona to show Paris he really does not love Juliet. Meanwhile on the streets Romeo Montague was depressed over Rosaline, because she wants to stay a virgin and not have children.
Where he drinks the poison just as Juliet is waking, then she stabs herself. The families mend their strife after the death of their children. One probably does not think upon reading this tragedy that Romeo and Juliet did not mature much because of how quickly they fell for one another and how rushed their marriage was, but they matured in many ways. Revenge, love, and a secret marriage forced the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly. They shifted from child to adult in the little time they were together.
I know that their relationship will not last for any time longer since both parents disagree with their relationship. It is ironic since their relationship is like the characters, Romeo and Juliet. Throughout the play, Romeo and Juliet make irrational decisions like modern adolescents. Romeo and Juliet make careless mistakes in life because of the lack of parental guidance and by making risky decisions. Parental guidance for teenagers has a crucial
“The Heart wants what it wants". This quote was written by Woody Allen, the quote can relate to the situation between Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet were teenagers that had fallen in love with each other, but the only thing they had to worry about is their families didn’t get along. Juliet was supposed to get married in Paris, but Romeo saw Juliet at the Capulet Party and they both instantly fell in love. But If Romeo and Juliet never met so many things would have happened differently.
The Maturities of Romeo and Juliet It is a controversial topic whether youth is capable of handling a mature love. Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare by 1595, epitomizes this common topic. The main characters of the play are two teenagers who fall in love at the first sight, however, the hatred between the families of the two leads to their death in the end. In the adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet in 1996, Romeo and Juliet are portrayed more mature than in that of Baz Luhrmann in 1968. This can be evident in three aspects: the styles of the acting of the actors, the reaction of Juliet after learning about the death of Tybalt, and the setting of certain scenes.
Shakespeare writes, “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; for this alliance may so happy prove To turn your households’ to rancor to pure love” (Ⅱ.Ⅳ.90-92). The evidence shows Friar agreeing to wed the two because it could end the feud. Friar should have denied Romeo request because if they hadn’t gotten married, they could have been less overwhelmed and lived their whole life. The Friar had good intentions, but he just wasn’t realistic enough. Later in the play, Paris wanted to marry Juliet, so the parents arranged it and Juliet was not pleased.
Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.” (Act 2, Scene 6, Line 10). In plain english, Friar tells the couple that the only relationships that last are ones that love in moderation, not ones who love too quickly or too slow. With the fact that Romeo is marrying Juliet in secret roughly two days after meeting her, it is pretty apparent from this scene that Romeo and Juliet’s love will certainly not last, and this goes the same way for teenagers relationships in real life. From this evidence, it gives another reason why teenagers can not be truly in love, and majority of the time it is infatuation. Needless to say, Romeo and Juliet is not the only example that teens have quite a struggle falling in love, however it does explain very well how teenagers just don’t have the maturity level to really be in love.
An examination of Romeo and Juliet reveals that a person’s fate is not decided at birth and can be changed based on their decisions. Romeo and Juliet proves people occasionally need to be told the truth to understand the problems and chaos they’re causing. The Capulets and Montagues had been archenemies for a long time and possibly don’t even remember why; all they know is that they hate the other family. Juliet has discovered who she has fallen in love with, “My only love sprung from my only hate! / Too early seen unknown , and known too late!
