Romeo and Juliet were not in love because they barely knew each other, Romeo just got over a breakup, and they were both looking for escapism. Romeo and Juliet were not in love. They scarcely knew each other, and they were just adolescents. Even Juliet's father, Lord Capulet thought she was too young, he even says, “My daughter is still very young. She’s not even fourteen years old.”(1.2.7-8).
This quote proves that specifically Romeo’s love for Juliet was based on her looks rather then her personality and relationships that start like that are bound to end. Love should come more internally than externally and in their case it does not make their love impure. In short Romeo and Juliet's love was not real and not meant to last. We see this when Romeo and Juliet love each others looks rather than personalities, when Romeo loves juliet because his ego needs a boost and when Juliet loves romeo because she can not have him. To conclude Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet love was unforsaken, unholy and untrue No matter how hard an expert stargazer looks Romeo and Juliet isn't written in the
This quote was chosen because they are talking about getting married hours after they first met. “My child is yet a stranger in the world. She hath not seen the change of fourteen years. Let two more summers wither in their pride ere we may think her ripe to be a bride.” (act 1 scene 2 line 8-11) In this quote, Lord Capulet is saying that Juliet is to young to make a big decision like marriage. This quote was also chosen because it shows that she has no experience in the real world so she wouldn't be ready to be committed to a lifelong marriage.
They fell in love with looks, not the heart. In Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, the two main characters are not really in love because they are quiet about their love, they are immature, and they are strangers. First, Romeo and Juliet are not truly in love because they are quiet about their love. For example, Romeo says “Tybalt, the reason that I have
This extract presents a foreshadowing to the hurried way Romeo and Juliet engage in their wedding, indicating that something terrible is bound to happen. This extract is an insight that reveals it’s meaning in a clearer way than Friar Lawrence’s previous quote. Juliet’s engagement to Paris causes them to make the radical decision to get married. Neither of them considers what outcome is likely to happen because of their marriage, like the reactions of their families’ and Paris. Their marriage causes upsetting fatalities leading to their deaths.
Getting to know someone is essential in building a healthy relationship between two people so that no rushed decisions are made and they will not encounter trouble in the long run. In Act II Scene 3 of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is conversing with Friar about her love for Romeo. “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove, to turn your households' rancor to pure love.” The Friar does not believe that Romeo’s love for Juliet is authentic because just before, Romeo had been madly in love with Rosaline. His love is very changeable, just days before he had been in love with another woman.
Juliet doesn’t care if she needs to leave her own family for Rome’s love. She struggles with the conflict between her feelings for Romeo and her knowledge that he is an enemy of her family. In this quote Juliet says that ‘’ Wherefore art thou Romeo?’’. She is basically asking herself that why the love of her life needs to be from the Montague’s family. The fourth conflict happens when Romeo states his quote in Act V, Scene I, "Then I defy you, stars!”.
The pair truly love each other because they are willing to marriage. Romeo and Juliet were forbidden to even be friends/know each other, but that didn 't stop them. In Act ll, scene ll, Juliet states, “Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow. (2.2.144)” Juliet ask
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
This ultimately leads young Romeo and Juliet to take their own lives. Love is knowing everything about someone, growing together as a couple, and a feeling that grows in time. Romeo and Juliet do not fit this definition and have a relationship that develops far too quickly, and consists of hidden agendas. The first point to prove that Romeo is only interested in Juliet because of her physical beauty begins early on in the play. When Romeo first sees Juliet, he impetuously claims that he is in love with her, knowing nothing about her but her alluring looks.
