The loyalty between family and friends can cause people to do things which can have an minimum or huge impact in their lives. In ‘Romeo and Juliet” by William shakespeare, it had lots of issues with loyalty, in which later in the book had caused the two main characters Romeo and Juliet their lives to change. An individual fails to realize the importance of loyalty their family or friends who made an impact on their life. The Nurse helped out Juliet when her Parents could not. “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).
Lastly, Shakespeare uses Romeo and Juliet to show true love. Nurse shows parental love to Juliet throughout the play. Despite being a servant to the Capulet household, she has a role equivalent to that of Juliet’s mothers and regards Juliet as her own. Even with the fact that Nurse is not the birth mother of Juliet, she still treats Juliet like a daughter. Nurse cares about Juliet and wants her to be happy and find success.” Go, girl, seek happy nights to happy days” (1.3.106).
Shakespeare writes, “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; for this alliance may so happy prove To turn your households’ to rancor to pure love” (Ⅱ.Ⅳ.90-92). The evidence shows Friar agreeing to wed the two because it could end the feud. Friar should have denied Romeo request because if they hadn’t gotten married, they could have been less overwhelmed and lived their whole life. The Friar had good intentions, but he just wasn’t realistic enough. Later in the play, Paris wanted to marry Juliet, so the parents arranged it and Juliet was not pleased.
Getting to know someone is essential in building a healthy relationship between two people so that no rushed decisions are made and they will not encounter trouble in the long run. In Act II Scene 3 of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is conversing with Friar about her love for Romeo. “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove, to turn your households' rancor to pure love.” The Friar does not believe that Romeo’s love for Juliet is authentic because just before, Romeo had been madly in love with Rosaline. His love is very changeable, just days before he had been in love with another woman.
/ The day is broke; be wary; look about.” (Shakespeare 3.5.39-40) This quote shows the Nurse warning Juliet that her mother was coming when the newlyweds were consummating. She may seem guilty earlier in the play but once Romeo is banished the Nurse gives Juliet new advice. I think you are happy in this second match, For it excels your first, or, if it did not, Your first is dead, or ‘twere as good he were As living here and you no use of him. (Shakespeare 3.5.235-23) This proves that she wanted the best for
While some may argue that Romeo and Juliet’s personalities are responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, it is actually the mentors’ fault because of the encouraged marriage, the complicated plan, and thoughtless consequences. The mentors first go wrong when the Nurse and Friar set up a secret marriage for Romeo and Juliet. It is the Nurse, who tells Juliet that in the cell “Stays a husband to make [her] a wife”(II.vi.69). With the help of the Friar and the Nurse, they are able to set up a time and a place for the secret marriage. Rather being true mentors and guiding them, they are allowing this quick marriage to happen.
He does this despite not knowing her because the pleasure he experiences from being loved by Juliet keeps him from analyzing the danger of the situation. Juliet agrees to marry Romeo when they see each other again the night they met. The connection between the two lovers is reminiscent of the quote, “Parting is all we need to know of hell” (Dickens) because the two are so drawn to each other that they cannot bear to be apart. “Romantic love is like a cocaine high, except you can come down from a cocaine high. Romantic love is an obsession” (Helen Fisher).
As regular human beings, we feel the primal sensibility of finding true love. But finding true love might be very difficult because of the chance of an infatuation. In the romantic play “Romeo and Juliet”, by William Shakespeare, there are two main characters that come from families that have always hated each other. A Montague named Romeo falls in love with a Capulet named Juliet, and they instantly know that true love is shared between them. True love is an everlasting affection between lovers that have a happy and compassionate relationship.
He tries to make all his decisions revolve around her. Capulet has a suitor, Paris, ready for Juliet, but Juliet does not find anything in Paris and instead finds another man she loves, Romeo. Juliet knows that Capulet would not approve of Romeo because he is a Montague, so she keeps it a secret. At the beginning of the play, Capulet makes thoughtful and rational choices, but the play progresses, his decisions become more fueled by emotions and impulsive. Capulet is capable of thinking objectively and analytically as shown in the beginning of the play.
Throughout Romeo and Juliet, the Nurse and Friar Laurence play very comparable roles, as being mentors for the two “star-crossed” lovers, and always being their plan for advise. These two young lovers are put through a relationship that they both end up destined to take their lives. From raising these children since they were young, they were always beneficial to the characters at that moment, but in the end, they did not certainly help at all. The continual feud between the Capulets and the Montagues was always a distraction for the families and their everyday behavior, and the only choice for Romeo and Juliet was to go to these mentor figures for help and endless love. Although, the advice they give throughout the play leaves a negative effect on them, and has the two both ending their lives, because of each other.
