In Act 1, Scene 3, Juliet obeys her mother and listens to what she has to say to her. She cares that her mother thinks well of her and wants to make her happy. There is a big change in that characteristic. In Act 3, Scene 5, she has a big argument with Lord and Lady Capulet about marrying Paris. She firmly tells her parents that she will not marry him and for that Lord Capulet says he will disown her if she dares to make such a decision.
Lady Macbeth is very passionate that the king must die in order for Macbeth to become the King, but she is worried that he will be to “soft” to do such a thing. “ Yet I do fear thy nature, it is too full o’ th milk” ( 1.5.16). Throughout her soliloquy, she fears that his sympathy will be his downfall and will prevent him from going along with her plan. She is confident that the only way for her plan to work, is to take action right away and,”play false” (1.5.22). Macbeth won’t do anything that will harm his friend, the King, and Lady Macbeth knows that so she knows what to do, she will make sure that he will go through with the regicide.
Suddenly she gets a little soft when she sees King Duncan sleeping. She says to her husband, “Had he not resembled My father as he slept, I had done ’t” (II, ii, 12-13). This is a big change for Lady Macbeth because up to this point, we have only seen her as a heartless woman who will do anything for the thrown. Out of nowhere she is compassionate towards King Duncan stating she could not kill him because he looked too much like her father. She still wants him dead but she knows if she did it she would feel guilty for her
For the majority of the story, she just abided Lord Capulet 's rule. For example, when Lord Capulet tried to force Juliet to marry Paris, she didn’t do anything to try and change his mind, even though she could clearly see how much it was hurting Juliet. In fact, Juliet even turns to her mother and asks for her help to delay the wedding a month, or even a week, or she’ll need to prepare Juliet a grave next to Tybalt. Her mom simply replies by saying, “Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word. Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee,” (5.3.114) and leaves the room.
They probably would have had a somewhat normal relationship if it wasn't for their parents. Juliet’s father, Lord Capulet, had his opinions and ideas about what Juliet’s future was going to look like. He came to Juliet demanding that she marry Paris because he thought it would make her happy after losing Tybalt. But to his dismay, she refused and said “Not proud you have, but thankful that you have/ Proud can I never be of what I hate/ But thankful even for hate that is mean love/” (3.5.151-153). Juliet explains to her father that she’ll never marry Paris, this is because she’s loyal to Romeo and staying married to Romeo is what her heart desires.
“As I told you my young lady bade me inquire you out; what she bade me say, I will keep to myself”(Act II.II.148-149). The Nurse has offered to keep the secret of the marriage between the two young ones and she will not tell anyone about it. After the Nursze comes back from visting Romeo she finds ways to not tell Juliet the good news instead she starts talking about other things, the Nurse also knows how delighted juliet will be once when she finds out about the wedding “Your love says, like an honest gentleman, and a courteous, and a kind,...where is your mother?”(Act II.II.55-57). The day of Mercutio and Tybalt 's death she did not think Romeo would do such a thing, and now her thoughts about Romeo have changed instead she thinks Romeo would end up hurting her young lady. She can not do anything about it as Romeo is Juliet 's husband now.
Such a statement to the person that has allowed her to stay long after Juliet finished breastfeeding is one that could cost her the loss of a second child. The Nurse continuously claims that Juliet is like her daughter, and defying Lord Capulet could lead her too far worse consequences than what Juliet gets for defying him. The fact that the Nurse is the one to call out Capulet for his misbehavior clearly shows
Another way the parents were to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death was when Juliet’s parents moved the wedding up a day. If they had not moved the day it would have given Friar Lawrence a chance to let Romeo know of the plan. Some may say that the parents aren’t to blame for their children’s death, and there were many other factors that led to the deaths; however, I disagree. I think the parents are one of the biggest factors that led to Romeo and Juliet’s death. This quote shows how Juliet’s Dad thought when she said she didn 't want to marry Paris.
She even tells her parents in act III, scene v “He shall not make me there a joyful bride…I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear it shall be Romeo…” In the twenty-first century, society sympathizes with Juliet, because no one could imagine marrying someone they did not choose. However, in the fifteenth century, people were confused why Juliet would want to marry a family enemy, especially when she had a suitable bachelor waiting for her hand, but she was searching for love. A decision that is well ahead of her time, because today people are also searching for companionship and love, similar to what she found in
In the book, Lindo Jong was forced to marry the boy chosen for her by the matchmaker. This meant she had to give up her happiness to fulfill the promise she made to her mother that she wouldn’t shame the family and she did everything in her power to keep that promise. Her daughter, Waverly Jong, did not have the same devotion to the meaning of the word “promise”. Amy Tan wrote, “A daughter can promise to come to dinner, but if she has a headache, if she has a traffic jam, if she wants to watch her favorite movie on TV, she no longer has a promise (Tan 42).” The younger generation does not apply as much devotion to the smaller things in life as their moms did because they did not grow up in the culture that the older
In Scene 1 Act 2 she says “Let not thy mother lose her prayers, Hamlet; I pray thee stay with us; go not to Wittenberg" (1.2,18-19) she’s trying to protect Hamlet but not seeing that she’s actually hurting him. What made Hamlet mad was that she had married her uncle two months after his father’s death. Gertrude causes the main problem in Hamlet’s life and she does it by only thinking of herself. Hamlet is a young loyal man while the queen is nothing close to being loyal. Hamlet is loyal to his father and want revenges for his death by killing Claudius while Queen Gertrude is disloyal to Old Hamlet by marrying his
5.) Vita is waiting desperately for her father to come back home but he never did.

"Javon"whispered our mom, not trying to wake up our baby sister. "Yes," dad whispered back.
