At that time, a woman’s life is just like passing from her father’s hand to her husband’s. And the society did not think it was a wrong thing, they still thought women should only pleased their husbands first and they should not to work as men, all their job and duty was to be a good housewife, take care of the whole family. Due to these opinions, most couples in 19th century had no love between each other. Kristina, who married with a rich man to support her mother and two brothers, she had no love to her husband, all she wants was support her poor family. But now, she becomes a widow, her husband and mother died and her brothers were grow up, she does not need to support any one more, she does not need to live for any one more.
The actions of the nurse and the Friar are responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. From the very begging of Romeo and Juliet’s newfound love, the nurse is supportive and helpful with Juliet. The nurse was an influential adult to Juliet and knew that the Capulets planned for Paris and Juliet to be married. She should have known better and discouraged Juliet from seeing Romeo. Instead, the nurse acted as a messenger between Romeo and Juliet for information about the wedding (Act II, scene iv).
The first ideas that Janie was exposed to was those of her grandmother, Nanny. Nanny saw that Janie was entering womanhood and she didn't want Janie to experience what her mother went through. So Nanny set out to marry her as soon as possible. When Janie asked about love, she was told that marriage makes love and she will find love after she marries Logan. Nanny believed that love was second to stability and security.
She is considered a close family relative. Along with Friar Laurence the nurse knows about the blossoming romance and future wedding between Romeo and Juliet. De Leon 2 The nurse is a static character because her role never changes and she sticks to her own opinion. When Romeo is banished the relationship between Juliet and the nurse changes. When the nurse suggested that she should forget about Romeo and marry Paris, she loses her trust and confidence.
She always seemed to want the best for Juliet and do good things for her but she also seemed confused throughout the story. One thing she did in the story that shows this was when she conspired with Friar Laurence about a plan to give the new made bridegroom their honeymoon night. She wanted Juliet to still have her honeymoon although Romeo had been banished. She saw this as a way for her to show how much she cared and it truly worked. On the other hand, when Juliet was in desperate need for help, the Nurse didn’t do her very much good.
In either case, no-one would have died. Also the Friar’s plan, to save Juliet from a second marriage, was flawed. He didn’t think about it properly and it backfired which directly influenced the death of Romeo and Juliet. The nurse also encouraged the couple to get married. She was Juliet’s confidant and was more of a mother to her than her actual mother.
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.
In Juliet’s most time of need, she goes on to say “(Romeo) Hath not so green, so quick, so fair an eye As Paris hath.”(3.5.222-223). As the mother figure for Juliet it is the nurse’s responsibility to give advice on what to do, and she gives terrible advice when she tells Juliet to marry Paris. This is a selfish thing to do and it only benefits her social status, and the nurse knows that Juliet does not love Paris. Overall, the situation could have been avoided had the nurse made better decisions and helped Juliet make them as well. So many say that Lord Capulet was the cause for the young loves’ deaths, it is obvious throughout the play that the real cause is none other than the nurse.
The True State of Happiness Janie is a dreamer, her grandmother Nancy says, she lives her life trying to reach the horizon-- Janie’s very dear dreams. The society’s principles of how a woman should act, and its strict limits, prevent Janie from reaching the horizon; that one day seemed to be so close. The first two unfortunate marriages separate Janie from her dreams by limiting her strictly and blending her into the melting pot of society. Everyone in the pot is forced to follow the mass of others, thus living their lives without finding their individuality and discovering their life purpose and path. Janie’s first two husbands, Logan and Jody, never allow Janie to reach the desirable horizon.
