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. However the
He was entertaining and the turning point for the main theme that climaxed the bliss and tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. With Mercutio being such a skeptic, he mocks love and makes fun of his best friend Romeo when he finds out he has fallen in love with a Capulet; Mercutio states “Romeo, Humors! Madman! Passion! Lover!
Some may think that it is Friar´s fault, for making the plan to get Romeo and Juliet married. And it can also be said that it is Benvolio 's who helped Romeo meet Juliet by taking him to the party. However, this is not true because it is Romeo who follows through these plans or advises to make these plans due to his unwise decisions. Afterall, he asked Friar to marry them ¨I’ll tell thee as we pass, but this I pray: That thou consent to marry us today¨ (Shakespeare 2.3.63-64). He requests Friar to get them married while Friar is not happy with him falling in love with another person all of a sudden.
The first reason why Friar Laurence is to blame is because he married Romeo and Juliet. After they decided they wanted to get married right away, Romeo and Juliet go to Friar’s cell to get married. Friar first questions the love because Romeo was in love with another women only a few hours ago. He only agrees to marry them because he thinks it will end the family tension. “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; / For this alliance may be so happy prove / To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (II.iii.90-92).
The two will lay together in death. The pair was truly in love is that they’re sneaking around to see each other. From Romeo risking his life to see Juliet and Juliet willing to change who she has been known as. In Act ll, scene ll,Romeo went to go see Juliet at her balcony of her room to see Juliet, “With love’s light wings did I o’ereach those walls/For stony limits cannot hold love out (2.2.66-67).” Romeo knew as going over the wall that, once he entered that he was in danger of the guards killing him. But, that didn’t stop him to see his beloved Juliet.
Romeo’s aversion to take part in the Capulet masque was overturned by Mercutio’s persistence, giving way to the happenstance of Romeo and Juliet’s meeting. This first insistence comes when Mercutio addresses the merry group, calling that, “gentle Romeo, we must have you dance,” (Shakespeare I.iv.13). Mercutio is trying to cheer Romeo up, by having him dance, to get him out of his loving rut. Soon after, Romeo stakes the claim that he had a dream, presaging death, made due from the ensuing party. Mercutio taunts him, saying “that dreamers often lie,” and rants about the fictional Queen Mab (Shakespeare I.iv.50-115).
Some evidence to support this argument would be this quote. "Romeo 's friends, who wish to see him lifted above his melancholy, urge him to stop philosophizing about his lost love and to seek another young lady as a new object of his affections." (Dupler 1). This quote is basically describing what is going on before Lord Capulet 's party starts. 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.
However, the paramours resolved the question of marriage with one fowl swoop. They decide to be married the next day. Their young love may be admired by some, but it is a rash act that ended in many complications. The hype of their love also caused them to be blind to reality and the reality of the situation was more complicated than they were willing to accept. Juliet was to be married to Paris with her Father’s approval and Romeo was just crushed by the rejection of his love, Rosaline.
In Document D, Juliet tells her mother, “... He shall not make me there a joyful bride...”. This demonstrates how Juliet feels about marrying Paris, but she could have just avoided this by actually telling the truth about her being married with Romeo. With all the evidence provided, it shows that Juliet was also to blame due to her not thinking about better decisions about handling her little problems that can be dealt with
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.
