William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," is a timeless story about forbidden love and mankind's desperation for romance, no matter how daunting or humiliating the task. Our two lovers, named Romeo and Juliet as the title presents, are restricted by fate, as they each persist to a rival family. They see past their archaic feud and become secretly wed. The couple, along with a friar, devise a plan to run away together and escape the grasp of their families horrid clash. The plan goes awry as word of the plan does not reach Romeo, and results in the death of both him and his beloved Juliet.
Destiny drives the play from when Romeo and Juliet have their first encounter at the banquet and they express their desirous romance. Fate pushes the play when Romeo, Mercutio and Tybalt begin a battle and results in the death of Tybalt and Mercutio. Destiny also steers the play especially when the messenger misses Romeo and does not explain that Juliet is not truly dead. The last fateful event in the play is Romeo’s and Juliet’s death, without the destined events before, they would not have died for each other. The famous playwright portrays this theme by using intricate literary devices to build up the events through the theme of destiny which eventually leads towards the tragic ending.
She struggles with the conflict between her feelings for Romeo and her knowledge that he is an enemy of her family. In this quote Juliet says that ‘’ Wherefore art thou Romeo?’’.

In act 3 scene 5 Lord Capulet tells Juliet that she has to marry Paris or else she will be disowned and he is not very nice about it either; while he is telling Juliet what will happen if she doesn’t Marry Paris he says, “hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, For, by my soul, I'll ne'er acknowledge thee”. This hurts Juliet very much. Lord Capulet was forcing Juliet to marry Paris so soon she didn’t even have time to think of anything else she could do. This is putting Juliet in a stressful situation because she is already married to Romeo, but now her father will disown her if she doesn't marry Paris.
Lear, in Monmouth’s work, laments the lack of a male heir and in admission of age, resolves to divide his kingdom amongst his daughters: Goneril, Regan and Cordelia. When his youngest and most beloved Cordelia fails to please him, however, Lear promptly banishes her in rage. Similarly, Shakespeare’s King Lear depicts an identical scene in which Lear furiously declares “Here I disclaim all my paternal care” (1.1.125).

This would benefit Juliet greatly because she would get out of town and she could live her own life with Romeo. “Hold, then. Go home, be merry, give consent to marry Paris.
An example of this impulsive behavior is when Friar Laurence encouraged this wedding without putting any thoughts into the outcomes. Romeo came to him saying he wanted to wed Juliet, a Capulet that he had met only hours ago, and Friar Laurence agreed to marrying them in secret the same day. Not only was this action impulsive, but it was also selfish. He says “So smile the heavens upon this holy act, That after hours with sorrow chide us not!” (II, vi, 1-2).
