In most societies, it is common for mothers to have great affection for their daughter(s), but Juliet receives more affection from the nurse that raised her rather than her mother. The Nurse shows Juliet great affection and love, while Juliet’s mother, Lady Capulet, barely knows anything about her own daughter, Juliet. The Nurse raised Juliet since she was an infant while Lady Capulet, a member of the nobility, spent very little time with Juliet as her priorities were attending social events, entertaining and spending time away on vacations. In Shakespeare’s tragedy “Romeo and Juliet”, the Nurse foils Lady Capulet by her relationship and affection towards Juliet showing Lady Capulet as the ultimate "Ice Queen" who cares more about her social status than her own daughter's happiness. The Nurse foils Lady Capulet by her relationship with Juliet.
“Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disabled heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.” In the words of Henry Ward Beecher, he describes perfectly that young love though beautiful is quick.

The expression of Juliet’s identity in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is complex. Looking at the different type of tones, behaviours, language and attitude displayed in two social scenarios. In particular the contrast between Juliet with her parents, and Juliet with the nurse. Juliet mostly keeps her emotion clam over the different personalities she encounters throughout Romeo and Juliet yet we can unveil a struggling relationship with her parents compared to the Nurse who is much like her second mum. Shakespeare has been very clever in incorporating many useful language devices in exposing the enigma in Juliet's identity, mostly similes and metaphors with a lot of effective puns and bombast.

This story has an intricate plot line; the two lovers prevail from rivaling families, after falling in love they marry and intend to run away to live together. From thereafter a series of actions taken by a number of the characters leads to their deaths. Despite the Nurse helping Juliet on numerous occasions, Friar Lawrence was at fault because he didn’t succeed in telling Romeo about the details of Juliet’s plan, created the plans that causes their deaths, and married the couple.
The Nurse and Friar Lawrence: Two Sides of the Same Story Both Friar Lawrence and the Nurse play integral roles as mentors and confidantes in the unity of Romeo and Juliet, and although the manner in which they unite the two young lovers differs, the two minor characters are decidedly critical to the plot. The Nurse, Juliet’s confidante, is one of the few characters to tell Juliet to openly seek out men and says, “Go, girl, seek happy nights/ to happy days.” , before the masquerade ball (1.4.114). This openness to Juliet expressing her own sexuality in an active role is critical to the young lover’s unity. Because of the Nurse’s encouragement, Juliet was not reluctant and demure when she first encounters Romeo.

In William Shakespeare's famous " Romeo& Juliet", there were betrayals that were caused from all different situations and people.

Within the academic and literary worlds, the most heinous crime a writer can be charged with is plagiarism. Stealing someone else’s words or ideas and passing them off as one’s own and submitting it for publishing is comparable to trying to sell a forgery of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa —an act of monstrosity that can permanently ruin one’s good name. For example, if one were to publish a dramatic play about two star-crossed lovers who take their own lives because they are separated by their families hate for one another, anyone who had a high school English class in the United States would be quick to declare that it is a rip of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
