Summary of “The Radical Idea of Marrying for Love” By Stephanie Coontz In the essay “The Radical Idea of Marrying for Love,” Stephanie Coontz talks about the history of marriage in different cultures and in different countries. For most cultures marriage was done as a necessity. Couples needed to marry just to reproduce to make sure their family history was continued. There was no romance in marriage, in fact, it was discouraged in most cultures for couples to fall in love before getting married.

In trying to do what good parents are suppose to do, the Capulets tried to control Juliet’s life by arranging her marriage to Paris, someone that she did not have any romantic interest in. The prejudice and need for control in the lives of the couple by their parents lead to the demise of the romance of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Laurence marrying Romeo and Juliet did little to avert the decisions the couple made in trying to take control of a situation that seemed doomed from the start. In the end no one but their parents could be blamed for the treacherous sequel of Romeo’s and Juliet’s lives because of the way they are controlling her life, the ongoing fight between the Capulets and Montagues and Friar Laurence for marrying Romeo and Juliet. Capulet and Lady Capulet are responsible for Juliet’s actions.
