(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s personality drastically changes. At first Romeo was love-sick and Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage. Then they meet, fall in love and get married.
The Capulets were the reason Romeo was exiled, thus causing Romeo and Juliet's tragic death. Another cause of their death is influenced by Juliet's own father. He told Juliet that she was to marry a man named Paris. Juliet refused because she loved another man, and because she was secretely married to Romeo. You would think her own father would be understanding of her wishes, but he commanded her to marry Paris or else he would disown her.
For example, when she trusts the Friar to get the information to Romeo. This information never gets to Romeo, which leads him to kill himself. Juliet could have told Romeo about her plan to take the potion and this would have prevented both of their deaths. Another bad decision was the marriage which complicated the already difficult situation. In conclusion Romeo and Juliet both sacrifice their own lives due to a lot of bad choices.
The quick encouragement of the marriage to Paris shows Nurse’s new disloyalty to Juliet. Juliet loses Nurse’s respect and feels alone in her decision-making, leading to the Friar’s plan. Overall, Nurse is to blame for Juliet’s death because she turned her back on her so that she could avoid the family
“Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, it might have been.” -Kurt Vonnegut. After reading Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, all one can think about is what might have been. Set in Verona hundreds of years ago, two rival families continue to fight because of an “ancient grudge” (Prologue.3) Two teens, Romeo and Juliet, fall in love, defying their families rules. After only a couple of days, their love cause both of their deaths. Friar Lawrence was the cause of their deaths for his irresponsibility and lack of urgency to solve the conflict he started.
The battle and hate of the two households force Romeo into getting banished. Another reason is that the parents of Juliet do not let her have any freedom. Lastly the parents force Juliet into marrying Paris without her concent. The battle and hate of the two households force Romeo into getting banished. Romeo was banished because he killed Tybalt.
His goal of being with her had come true, but while being out on the town Tom finds out about the affair and things are laid out on the table. An argument starts up between Tom and Gatsby on who Daisy loves with Gatsby saying, “ ‘ Your wife doesn't love you…. She never loved you. She loves me….. She never loved you, do you hear...She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me (137).” As he argues with Tom you can see his defiance to believe that Daisy could love another.
On the other hand, when Juliet was in desperate need for help, the Nurse didn’t do her very much good. Juliet’s parents were both disappointed in her and threatening to disown her because she refused to marry Count Paris. When she confronted the Nurse for help and advice, the Nurse told her that she should break the law and marry a second man. More than that, she wasn’t concerned with Juliet’s true feelings but rather with the fact that she may lose her job if Juliet continues to refuse. If she had done what was in Juliet’s best interest, she would have looked into the situation more and realized that forcing her into a marriage could have dire
This is further illustrated when Juliet is forced to marry Count Paris when Friar Lawrence presents her with an alternative, “I’ll give thee remedy”. Through The friar suggesting a substitute to Juliet’s fate, he doesn’t let her take responsibility for not telling her parents about her vows to Romeo hence he shows weak judgement and a deficit of thought. Friar Lawrence can be further held accountable for the suicide of Juliet, when at her discovery of Romeos suicide, he abandons her, “I dare no longer stay”. Through this action Friar Lawrence exhibits
