When Lady Capulet is trying to convince Juliet to follow through with marrying Paris, Juliet says, “marriage is an honor that I wish not of.” This quote shows that she doesn’t want to be married. Not only did the Capulets force Julie to marry young, but they also have chosen her a man to marry. The man that they have chosen is Paris, and Juliet only wants to marry Romeo. Juliet says this when talking to Lady Capulet about marrying Paris, “[Paris] shall not make me a joyful bride! / I pray you, tell my lord and father, madam / I will not marry yet, and when I do I swear / it shall be to Romeo, whom I know you hate / Rather than Paris.” Juliet begged her mother to accept the fact that she doesn’t want to marry Paris, and wants to marry Romeo.
Correspondingly, the nurse isn’t realizing the long term effects between the feuding families if Juliet was to marry Romeo. Following this further, it can show that the nurse is impulsive by rapidly approving Juliet to wed Romeo. Friar Laurence, can be shown being impectious by willing to wed Romeo and Juliet, “Saint Francis be my speed! How oft tonight. Have my old feet stumbled at graves!” (v.iii.121-122).
Romeo and Juliet want to get married so Romeo goes to Friar Laurence. “Then plainly know my heart's dear love is set on the fair daughter of the rich Capulet (2.3.57-58).” Romeo and Juliet love each other a lot so they choose to get married without thinking of the consequences. Even some of the smarter people in Verona make huge mistakes. Even the friar who gives the advice doesn't think before he makes his decision. Maybe he should have listened to his own advice.“ till holy church incorporate two in one (2.6.37).” Friar makes them happily married without thinking what will happen to him.
Shakespeare is able to make readers see how deeply in love the couple was though they had only known each other for a short amount of time. Finally, Romeo and Juliet get Friar Laurence to marry them. The only proof of this is Friar Laurence saying, “But come on, inconsistent young man, come with me. I’ll help you with your secret wedding” (2.3.89). The wedding is so extremely rushed that in the play, there is no direct statement that shows that they actually got married.
After knowing Romeo for only a couple hours Juliet states,”Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow, by one that I’ll procure to come to thee, where and what time thou wilt perform the rite; and all my fortunes at thy foot I’ll lay and follow thee my lord throughout the world” (II, II, 144-148). Their sex hormones have caused them to strive and decide that they have found love after only a short period of time. During this short period of time, both of them have confessed their true feeling of affection for each other, and Juliet has agreed to follow Romeo everywhere he goes. Hormones have affected the choice of love for both teenagers and ultimately led to the choice of getting married without thinking about the decision or the consequences first. The selection of finding someone to love and acting upon it is caused by hormones in teenage years.
The articles, “Beautiful Brains” and “Insight into the Teenage Brain”, helps us further understand why they are making these decision and why they don’t know when to stop. During the second scene of Act II, Romeo and Juliet decide to get married after having met hours before at the Capulet party. In the scene that follows, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence, “But this I pray, that thou consent to marry us today” (Shakespeare 410). Here, Romeo is requesting that Friar Lawrence marry him and Juliet that same day, the morning after they met. This is surprising to both the audience and Friar Lawrence because prior to Romeo attending the party, he was in love with Rosaline and depressed over the fact that she did not love him back.
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.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the title characters make impulsive decisions from the moment they are introduced to the audience. For example, during the first moments of meeting in Act I, both Romeo and Juliet profess their love for each other and Juliet even claims, in seeking out Romeo’s identity, that “If he is married, My grave is like to be my wedding bed” (Shakespeare 396). Juliet, in these lines, is stating that if she cannot have Romeo, she would rather die than be with anyone else. This behavior is rather surprising, as Juliet has just met Romeo and knows nothing about him. The article, “Beautiful Brains” addresses studies and findings on how the development of the teenage brain correlates with impulsive behavior in teenagers stating, “We all like new and exciting things, but we never value them more highly than we do during adolescence.
On the other hand when Romeo told his father about him marring Juliet his father wanted them to get married. He wanted them to get married because he was hopping the two families would become one and have less
Romeo and Juliet love new experiences, teenage brain influences her impulsive behavior. During the second scene of Act II, Romeo and Juliet impulsively decided to get married, less than twenty four hours after meeting each other. In scene II, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence, “but this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today” (Shakespeare 410). What Romeo is requesting, is that Friar Lawrence is marrying him and Juliet that same day, having only met Juliet the night
Friar Laurence states ¨in one respect I´ll assist be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households rancor to pure love¨(980) This is saying that not knowing what marrying Romeo and Juliet could cause, but he did it anyway. Little did he know that is would wound up with both of them dead. He thought that if they were married, nothing could go wrong. The friar thought there would be a happily ever after. If he never married them, then Juliet would learn that she has to do what she told, and not go behind her parents back.
The blame is on Romeo because he acted too hastily throughout the play. He shouldn 't have asked Juliet to marry him so suddenly, and he should have thought more carefully bedfellows rushing back to Verona after hearing of Juliet 's death. He also acted violently and without thinking he killed Tybalt and later on, he killed Paris too. Romeo and Juliet were both going to get married, but first they needed to go to Friar Laurence 's cell. The father didn 't like that idea, but he saw that they were both really in love with each other, so he was going to marry them.
Ever since they laid eye’s on one another, Romeo and Juliet continuously formulate careless decisions, such as determining to get married. Romeo and Juliet make the rash decision on “Thy purpose marriage,” and Romeo must “send [Juliet] word tomorrow,” (2.2.149). During the couples discreet encounter, Juliet audaciously agrees to send someone at nine o’clock the next day to discuss marital arrangements with Romeo. This lackadaisical decision to marry one another express the recklessness behind the young romance. Young love causes people to devise imprudent decisions without pondering the ramifications it may
Upon seeing Juliet for the first time, he fell completely in love with her. Within his first conversation with Juliet, he confessed his love for her by saying, “I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”(Romeo & Juliet. 1.5.51). He then goes on to propose the idea of marriage, and, later in the play, marries her. The fact that Romeo fails to comply with the rule that a Montague and Capulet cannot marry shows his impulsivity.
This plan was made because of how desperate Juliet was to see Romeo again. He wanted to reassure Juliet that she would once again see Romeo but, this plan was made on the spot with evaluation in it. Once the plan of meeting up with Romeo does not go according and Romeo is dead, Friar Laurence has no backup plan with Juliet. .”Thy husband in thy bosom there lies dead; And Paris too. Come, I’ll dispose of thee Among a sisterhood of holy nuns”(V.iii.168-170).
