An example of her selflessness can be seen when she says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou will not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”, where her desperation and readiness to lose her own titles and name to be with Romeo prove that what she is after is love, and not his name or the prestige that comes with it. Furthermore, Juliet is a young and extremely volatile character, and this is never better demonstrated than in this scene, where Juliet falls in love with Romeo instantly and all but takes her marriage vows in the following 30 minutes. However, all of a sudden, Juliet tells Romeo that she finds the contract “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden”, which means Juliet suddenly has hesitations about their love, and wishes for some time to go by and ensure that it will last. Next, when they are in the process of saying their goodbyes, Juliet expresses her wish to have him gone, “And yet no farther than a wanton’s bird.”, which shows how much she wishes for his proximity, though she then says a few lines farther down that “(Juliet) should kill thee with much cherishing” with which she means that she cherishes him so that she could metaphorically kill him, and is worried her love will cause him troubles. This could cause the audience to begin to wonder whether their wish for mutual
If the story were lacking this strong female part, there is a chance Romeo and Juliet would not have made their marriage successful at all, as she often delivers messages back and forth between the “star-crossed lovers” when they are unable to themselves as well. The third, final, and feasibly most important part dramatically in “Romeo and Juliet” is found in the title, Juliet herself. She is referred to as Romeo’s “bright angel” in his own words, during the balcony scene and provides an essential character for this tragic script. Moreover, Juliet is willing to give up her family and her life, though these actions are considered hasty by many readers and characters alike, to be with Romeo. In summary, the female characters in the play “Romeo and Juliet” have a more dramatic impact because of the roles they play- Rosaline essentially drives Romeo to Juliet, Juliet’s Nurse insures the success (no matter how short) of Romeo and Juliet’s marriage, and one of the main characters, Juliet herself, is

This ultimately leads young Romeo and Juliet to take their own lives. Love is knowing everything about someone, growing together as a couple, and a feeling that grows in time. Romeo and Juliet do not fit this definition and have a relationship that develops far too quickly, and consists of hidden agendas. The first point to prove that Romeo is only interested in Juliet because of her physical beauty begins early on in the play. When Romeo first sees Juliet, he impetuously claims that he is in love with her, knowing nothing about her but her alluring looks.
She wants to wait another day to see if their love is true instead of agreeing to love that may disappear before she can fully experience it. This proves Juliet is more patient and mature than Romeo as she takes a step back and reevaluates how fast everything is going for their relationship. In the balcony scene, Juliet reveals her doubts and
