They want to be lovers and get married. But, they found out that their families are in a feud and nobody knows why. Then they get married secretly, but, Romeo gets exiled for killing Tybalt. Juliet asks Friar Lawrence for help because her parents arranged her a wedding with Paris and so she can go stay with Romeo. Friar Lawrence gives Juliet a potion that makes her seem dead, but she is in a deep sleep for 42 hours and tells her he will send a letter to Romeo to get her.
Juliet is devastated so she goes to Friar Lawrence for help. Friar comes up with a plan for Juliet to take a potion to make herself seem dead for two and forty hours, when Juliet awakes Romeo would be there to take her to Mantua. Juliet’s parents can believe that she is dead because “Each part, deprived of supple government,/ Shall, stiff and stark and cold, appear like death” (Shakespeare 5.1. 102-103). As part of Friar Lawrence’s plan, he sent Friar John to tell Romeo about the plan, but word got to Romeo about Juliet’s death before Friar John could tell Romeo about the plan.
During Romeo’s time in Mantua, he started to plot a way to get back to Verona and get Juliet back. Before he was sent off to Mantua they made a plan for Juliet to drink a potion made by Friar Lawrence that would make her seem dead. After her family thought that they had found Juliet dead in her room they would have no choice but to place her in the family tomb, where Romeo would come to get her to run off and live their life together. The plan would have worked out as planned if it was not for Juliet’s parents suddenly making the decision to marry her to Paris, and they would be married very soon. After trying to deny being married off she finally agreed to marry Paris, but she will have to take the potion sooner, but she has no way to communicate this to Romeo.
However against this background of civil conflict, something wonderful happens, two young people fall in love. But there is only one problem one of them is a Montague, a dreamy young man named Romeo, and the other a Capulet, beautiful thirteen-year old Juliet. Moreover the play begins with a street conflict between. Where the Prince tries to bring back order by threatening punishment of death to the next person who starts a fight. However Romeo, originally is in love with Rosaline, he is convinced by his friends to attend the Capulet ball where he falls in love with Juliet, and he quickly forgot Rosaline.
Essentially what is going on during this time is that Mercutio and Benvolio are forcing Romeo to go to a party so he can invest his time in a new girl instead of moping about Rosaline, who is the girl Romeo loved before. If they had never urged Romeo to go to the party, he most likely wouldn 't have gone to the party, and had never met Juliet, thus stopping the unfortunate events that were to happen next. Another example would be the event where Mercutio gets killed by Tybalt. Since Romeo’s best friend dies, he gets extremely angered, causing him to kill Tybalt. This event could have been easily avoided by Mercutio choosing his actions differently and wisely to avoid getting killed by Tybalt, or he could have calmed down instead of engaging in violence.
Pardoned or Punished Have you ever read Romeo and Juliet and wondered who should be punished for their deaths? In the book Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare and guy named Romeo and a girl named Juliet met at a party and get married the next day but can not tell people because their families are in a feud. Juliet’s father Lord Capulet tries to make her marry someone else. This makes her go to Friar Lawrence, the one who married her and Romeo, and he gives her potion that will bring her close to death. Romeo thinks she is dead and kills himself.
It 's at the party that Juliet meets Romeo and falls for him at first sight. Everything about marriage with Paris has changed. It states “If that thy bent of love be honorable, thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow… (2.2.157). Juliet wants to marry Romeo which means she will have to defy her parents and keep her marriage a secret. This will cause problems with her parents in the long run.
Romeo and Juliet is a play about star-crossed lovers. Romeo is apart of a high class Montague family; their rival is the Capulet family. Romeo falls in love with the daughter of Lord Capulet. They want to get married but they know that this will not be approved between their family feud. This is why they secretly ask Friar Laurence to marry them in secret.
Romeo was deeply in love with Rosaline and wanted to be with her and get married. “For beauty starved with her severity…She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair: She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow…” (Romeo and Juliet 1.1.210-214) Romeo thought that Rosaline was everything he was looking for. Rosaline on the other hand did not care for Romeo, or from what the play tells us. Romeo moved on past Rosaline at a party the Capulets were throwing. If Romeo had not moved onto Juliet many, if not all, characters would have still been alive.
From the moment he sees her at the Capulet party, Romeo immediately falls in love with Juliet. They both fall head over heels for each other as the night progresses. During their time together, they completely put all things aside and forget everything about the world except for their love for one another. Most people seem to think this way about the romance between Romeo and Juliet, but in reality, they aren’t actually truly in love. Romeo and Juliet are not in love with each other because just a day before they met, he felt heartbroken because of a girl named Rosaline who didn 't love him, he pressures Juliet to profess her love to him, and after just barely meeting, they both agree to get married.
