In his plays he illustrates that forced love is not genuine and will cause many challenges to arise, and he also proves that true love will prevail no matter what obstacles stand in its way. During a time when marriage was mainly used to improve one’s social stats or help one live more comfortably, Shakespeare’s ideas were groundbreaking. The reason his ideas overall made an impact was because they were presented in a subtle way that allowed he audience to think on them instead of being overwhelmed by them. Also his points rang true for many in his audience because as Harriet Monroe points out in all of Shakespeare’s works he “[…] present[s] his supreme experience-exquisite emotion, love exalting or degrading, conviction of sin, conviction of fame, the sense of unendurable beauty […]” which are all essentially human emotions (34). The plays Shakespeare presented before his audience express real feelings and emotions which opened his audience’s eyes to a world of love and
Have you ever thought that group work helps you out? Some people think that its necessary to have 1 or more people working with you to get finished faster, and to also be more responsible when turning in work. “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is process, and working together is success,” said Henry Ford.

At the start of the play, Friar Laurence decides to marry Romeo and Juliet.
Friar Laurence is was an interesting character. He helped the two star-crossed lovers, but was also a reason they both died in the end. Friar Laurence is many different things. I think some things he say in the play kind of shape him.
In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence’s insensibility causes him to give Romeo and Juliet rash advice, leading to the pair of star-crossed lovers’ ultimate doom. When Romeo seeks advice from Friar Lawrence in hopes that he can marry him with Juliet, the Friar agrees, in hope of “[turning the] households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3.99). However, as an adult, and as a man that others seek for help, Friar Lawrence should have put more thought into the different ways the families could react by the marriage. The Friar should have realized that there was a big possibility that the Capulets and Montagues would be angered by the wedding. Instead, he makes his decisions upon the improbable idea of reconcilement through marriage.
The Nurse and Friar Lawrence: Two Sides of the Same Story Both Friar Lawrence and the Nurse play integral roles as mentors and confidantes in the unity of Romeo and Juliet, and although the manner in which they unite the two young lovers differs, the two minor characters are decidedly critical to the plot. The Nurse, Juliet’s confidante, is one of the few characters to tell Juliet to openly seek out men and says, “Go, girl, seek happy nights/ to happy days.” , before the masquerade ball (1.4.114).
