(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.
When Juliet objected to Lord Capulet’s decision of marrying her to Paris, the nurse advised Juliet to do as her father said (Act III, scene v, lines 213-226). Juliet was already married to Romeo and refused to go against her wedding vows. Without the support from her nurse, Juliet goes to the Friar. He gives her a potion that allows Juliet to fake her death and live happily ever after with Romeo. The Friar and Juliet devise a plan, and the Friar sends a letter that informs Romeo of the plan.
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
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
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.
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).
Secondly, when Juliet tells Capulet that she does not want to marry Paris, Capulet declares to Juliet: “’But, and you will not wed, I’ll pardon you. Graze where you will, you shall not house with me’” (3.5.215-216). Juliet’s father tells her that if she will not marry Paris, she will no longer be allowed to live in his house. By threatening Juliet, Capulet hopes to make Juliet marry Paris. Pressuring Juliet to make a choice that she does not want to make caused the tragedy at the end of the play.
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
She has little guidance and help from her family. She is expected to marry Paris as her father decided. The death of her at the end can be known as a severe punishment as she argues the fate. They are expected to be obedient and to follow the word of their husbands, but still each women plays a important role which contributes to the outcome of the play "Romeo and Juliet". In the play, Shakespeare puts the character Juliet in a typical situation, which was an arranged marriage and this was a role taken by all women of that time.
Other families have suffered losses because of the feud between these two families that lasted for generations. Most of these deaths would never have occurred if the two families were not fighting. Furthermore, Friar Lawrence told Lord Capulet that Juliet sought advice to avoid the marriage to Paris without disobeying her father; she even threatened to kill herself in his chamber if the Friar refused to help (5:3:236-241). Lord Capulet should not have yelled or threatened Juliet over an arranged marriage to Paris. He pressured her into drinking the concoction out of desperation.
