Romeo and Juliet trust Friar Laurence and trust his guidance. Instead of secretly marrying them, he should have made them face their families and profess their love. “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 (2.3.96-99).” Friar Laurence believes, based on the quote, that the bond between Romeo and Juliet will cure the feud between the two households.
Friar Laurence’s well intentioned actions shaped the story's plot. Even though some people try, sometimes they make things worse. This is what friar Laurence did in Romeo and Juliet. There are two main families in Romeo and Juliet, the Montague and the Capulet.
While romeo has lost his feelings for Rosaline, Friar is involved. Friar knows Romeo, he also knows of Juliet, he agrees to marry them off secretly. Since Romeo and Friar has such a close relationship, Romeo likes to think of Friar as his father to him. Since Friar marries romeo and Juliet, Friar thinks this will end the feud between both of their families, the montague and Capulets. As for Juliet, she is getting married to Paris in a few days, Juliet calls for help to Friar.

Friar Laurence realizes that he can end the hatred between the two families if he marries them. Romeo and Juliet both Although Romeo and Juliet is a story of love, it is clear that there is much more hate in the story than love.
They will then send letters to Romeo so he is aware of their plan. The next day Lord and Lady Capulet, along with Paris find the lovely young bride Juliet ¨dead.¨ Later they laid her down to rest in the Capulet tomb. Friar was supposed to send world to Romeo, but nothing was ever delivered because the whole city was under quarantine.

Romeo and Juliet: Love or Lust? Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy composed by the English writer, playwright, and actor, William Shakespeare. It tells the story of two young star crossed lovers that meet against all odds at a Capulet party. Romeo and Juliet are not examples of true love because they were too immature, too problematic, and they had been experiencing only a shallow attraction toward one another.
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare was in fact written about True love, not lustful infatuation. Romeo and Juliet show true love throughout the play/book, such as when Romeo killed himself when he thought Juliet had done the same, Juliet refuses her parent’s and her name to be with Romeo, and when Romeo was banished for killing tybalt he risked getting in trouble just to see Juliet at night. In Romeo and juliet there was a particular part where Juliet was married to Romeo and no one knew except for Friar Laurence. Juliet’s parents and the nurse were hellbent on getting her to marry to marry Paris, the Nurse even says “Nay, he’s a flower.
When Love is True True love is a defendable emotion worth personally sacrificing for. In William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo Montague falls in love with Juliet Capulet, the Capulets being revivals of the Montague family. In the late 1400’s, when the two families are fighting, there is a strict, no contact pact between the two families set by the Prince of the town they reside in: Verona, Italy. From meeting and marrying Juliet, illegally returning from Mantua out of exile to see his supposedly dead wife, and taking his own life to be in heaven where she appears to be, Romeo shows that he is truly in love with Juliet and that he is willing to do anything to be with her.
In countless fairy tales and myths, passion is praised as a beautiful and moving emotion. A prince’s passionate kiss awakes his sleeping soul mate; a mother’s passionate love for her daughter makes her journey across the seven seas to find her; a father’s passion and care for his son causes him to sacrifice himself for his son’s life. However, a picture that the stories often don’t paint, is the truth behind passion, how dangerous passion is and the actions it can force one to take. In the tragedy Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two households, the Montagues and the Capulets, are engaged in a life long feud.
Written in the stars People say if it was meant to be it will be written in the stars and in the case of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, their constellation is nowhere to be found. Romeo and Juliet's love was not meant to last, real love does not need planning. Romeo and Juliet's love was to passionate to last forever because Juliet loved Romeo based on the mentality that she could not have him, Romeo loved Juliet because he needed an ego boost and Juliet and Romeo loved each other based on each others looks. Thus making Romeo and Juliet’s love not meant to last due to factors that made them love for the wrong reasons. The first reason why Romeo and Juliet's love was not meant to be is Juliet's love for romeo was based on her wanting something she can not have.
Nevertheless the love of Romeo and Juliet was true love. Since Romeo and Juliet’s love was forbidden by their family’s, Capulets and Montagues, it made their love stronger. If someone is told they are not aloud something or someone it makes them want it even more. Another thing to remember is Romeo and Juliet were willing to go against their family’s wishes. Following this further Romeo and Juliet were willing to die for each other.
Types of Love There was once a great American novelist ,F. Scott Fitzgerald, that had said "There are all kinds of love in this world, but never the same love twice. " What this quote means is that there is a variety of different types of love in our world, but you can never have the same type of love for two people. For example if you feel certain type of love like Agape love you can not have Agape love for more than one person else .This quote goes along with Romeo and Juliet ,by William Shakespeare, perfectly because in this play there is a lot of different loves going on between the characters.
“For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” The 16th century tale of the star-crossed lovers became eternalized as the epitome of what love is, or at least should be like across time periods, cities, and cultures. Shakespeare defined love as: “It’s a wise form of madness. It’s a sweet lozenge that you choke on.” Thus, by this definition a lot of young couples with their heads above the clouds correlate their relationships with the above mentioned one, and even go as far as to idolize the phrase “thus with a kiss I die”.
