Then they meet, fall in love and get married. Romeo is more impulsive and doesn’t think where Juliet is smarter about and thinks about things. But in the end love and fate triumphs and they die for each other causing their ancient family feud to
He talks to himself about many things, but the main theme is theduality in any situation, meaning how something bad can so easily be turnedto good, and vice versa. While he seems to be focusing his entire speech tohimself on this idea, Friar Lawrence so easily contradicts it only a fewscenes later, when he marries Romeo and Juliet. By marrying the youngcouple, Friar Lawrence is not even following his own ideas, because eventhough marrying Romeo and Juliet is a good act, doing it so hastily makes it abad one. This ties in to another, closely related one of Friar Lawrence’sideas, which is that a good action done in a bad way can form a bad action, ashe says: “Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied…” (II.ii.17). This againshows that the good act of marrying Romeo and Juliet, if done wrong bydoing it too quickly, can become bad act.
Juliet and Romeo fell in love and got secretely married, for they knew if their familes were to find out, they would be forbidden to see each other. Juliet wanted more than anything to be with Romeo for the rest of her life, but her family got in the way of her and her true love. One day, when Romeo was out in the streets with his cousin Benvolio and his friend Mercutio, Tybalt approached Romeo, requesting to duel him. Knowing that Tybalt was a Capulet, and knowing that if there was another fight to break out in the streets, Romeo would not only be fighting Juliet's cousin, but the Prince would punish him severely. Romeo doesn't want to be seperated from Juliet anymore than he was, so he declined the duel with Tybalt, and told him they had no reason to fight, and that the Prince would not be happy.
They decided to get married after their “love fest” in the garden, and this is where their adventure began. The first archetype I have chosen for Romeo was a rebel. Romeo fits this archetype because he is inclined to resist authority and the authority that he is going against is his families’ laws. Romeo is courting Juliet discreetly behind their families back. Romeo is not supposed to have any dealings with her, yet he still fights for love.
When Capulet decided that “[Romeo] shall be endured [and to] take no note of him” at the ball. Had Capulet made Romeo go, Juliet would not have met Romeo. Capulet was at direct fault for Juliet and Romeo’s introduction. Also, Capulet is at blame because of the family feud. Without the feud, Juliet would be free to marry Romeo with no problem.
After Romeo soon learns about his banishment, he is told by Friar Laurence to go visit Juliet one last time; he responds by saying “It were a grief so brief to part with thee. Farewell.” (3.3.192-193). Thoughtless and stubborn, even though his “undying love” for Juliet affects him, Romeo does not realize that going to Juliet’s house can lead to dire consequences. To avoid these consequences, he could have left Verona immediately. During a tremendous argument between Juliet and her mother, Lady Capulet claims that Juliet must marry Paris, an innocent, charming man who wants to marry her, but she refuses and shouts, “ He shall not make me there a joyful bride…I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear it shall be Romeo” (3.5.132-137).
Fate is commonly overlooked as being the sole cause of their deaths, but in my opinion it is what brought the two lovers to their end. Throughout the play it reveals that their lives will end by their influences and actions, "A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life". This unavoidable aspect may have made Romeo and Juliet fall in love just to end the feud between the two houses. An important act of fate to consider would be the masquerade ball, if Romeo wasn’t wearing a mask Juliet would have realised who he was and may have not fallen in love with him. Romeo was too young to realise that he should have waited until he got over Rosaline before he became involved with Juliet.
Throughout the play it is shown, that Romeo had many different aspects to him, and his impulsiveness was a big one. Romeo, sneaks into the Capulet household where he meets Juliet. He finds Juliet to be the most beautiful girl he’s seen, “Did my heart love till now?...For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night." (Act 1, v, 52) and his previous feelings for Rosaline are now gone, as he is now “in love” with Juliet. He later, then sneaks onto Juliet’s balcony where he openly tells her that he is in love with her.
After hearing of Romeo’s banishment and being forced to marry Paris in the upcoming days, Juliet rushes to the Friar for advice. Although betraying Juliet, the Nurse’s decision to side with Lady Capulet was probably one of the smartest choices in the play. Unlike the Friar, the Nurse realized how outcome of Romeo and Juliet’s marriage could end badly. The Friar continues his irresponsible and childish actions by conjuring up a plan and potion in a matter of minutes. “Friar Lawrence, less ambitious and more desperate than his fellow manipulators, does not hope that Juliet’s death will dissolve the families’ hatreds but only that it will give Romeo and chance to come and carry her off” (Snyder).
Analysis: Juliet loves Romeo. She is sad that Romeo has to be a Montague, the rival of her family, the Capulets. Juliet is very daring and caring. Juliet mirrors some girls in today’s society because some girls might disobey their father’s or parents’ wishes to get what they want. A theme in the story is “Overcoming Society, Family and Judgment” because everybody in Verona knows about the feud and Juliet still loves Romeo.
