The Immaturity of Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet is a timeless tale of lovers whose misfortune and immaturity was a cause of their own destruction. The characters individually show immaturity and together demonstrate how ignorance of the world affects more than just their own lives. Romeo and Juliet, as expressed in the succeeding examples, fall in love quickly as a result of their naivety. Juliet is shown to be immature in an opening scene where her father tells the bride-seeking Paris his daughter is not old and grown-up enough to marry. It is also shown during the balcony scene when she agrees to marry Romeo after knowing him only a day and she is not even sure herself that Romeo wants to marry her.
Year 10 Coursework Assignment - Romeo and Juliet “In Act 3 Scene 5, Lord and Lady Capulet insist that Juliet must marry Paris not knowing that she is already married to Romeo. How does Shakespeare make us feel increasingly sympathetic towards Juliet in this scene?” Romeo and Juliet, blinded by their passionate young love, could not have imagined the gravity of their decision to get married. The relationship, initiated in secrecy would be confronted by constant challenges and troubles. Each being a member of enemy families, fighting over an “ancient grudge”, their marriage could’ve never been accepted or publicly announced as they’d both dishonour their families and consequently lose their lives. In the scene following their marriage, we feel increasingly sympathetic towards Juliet as she faces Lord and Lady Capulet, who are insisting in marrying her to Paris “early next Thursday”.
Romeo & Juliet is considered the greatest love story of all time. The story is about a young individual named Romeo that is looking for love and falls for the gorgeous Rosaline. But since she ignored him and wasn’t looking for love he fell into depression which gave the idea to his best friend Mercutio to convince him to go to a party to try forgetting about her. There instead of spying on Rosaline he meets the Beautiful Juliet which he met by chance and fell for. After falling in love with each other and kissing they both find out their love is forbidden due to the fact their families are enemies, so in order to stay together they risked everything and got married by Friar Lawrence.
This is false because they may seem to be in love, however, Romeo noticeably only loves Juliet for her looks based off of his comparison of her to celestial objects whilst expressing his love. Moreover, Juliet is uncertain of her feelings throughout their entire story, but because of Romeo’s foolhardy love for Juliet, they progressed with their relationship at too fast of a pace, causing numerous accounts of danger and mistakes, resulting in a flawed relationship that sadly ended in both their deaths. If they were to get to know each other better and take their love more slowly, it would show that they are truly in love, but sadly the course they chose to partake, made for inevitable doom in their
Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
In Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo disregards his reasoning and makes hurried decisions as he is influenced by his passion, while in Jane Eyre, Edward Rochester, though he possesses a great deal of wit, lets his feelings get in the way of his judgment and pursues a young love interest, Jane, when he knows of the social standards that forbid him to fall in love with a peasant. In Shakespeare's classic play, Romeo proves to be influenced solely by emotion and love while he makes irrational choices that ultimately lead to his tragic fate. In the beginning of the play, Romeo quickly marries Juliet within only a few hours of meeting her, without the consent of their parents. Their parents would not allow the marriage anyway, as the two families have had bad blood between each other for many years. Romeo's characterization causes him to disregard the possible consequences of the secretive marriage because he lives in the moment and only cares about his love for Juliet.
Meanwhile, Romeo, the son of Lord Montague, gatecrashes a masquerade ball hosted by Lord Capulet in honour for a potential marriage between his daughter Juliet and a wealthy man named ‘Paris’. Romeo goes to meet his older love Rosaline, but instead falls in love with Juliet. In love, they quickly arrange a marriage with Friar Lawrence, who hopes to join the two families together and end the feud between them. Straight after the wedding, Romeo goes to meet Mercutio, a friend of the Montague’s, who is with the ‘fiery’ nephew of Capulet Tybalt. A battle follows in which Mercutio is stabbed and killed.

Romeo and Juliet then have to hide their love because of their feuding families that has been going on for centuries.

People may argue that Hamlet only acted like he loved Ophelia, but I feel that he truly did have feelings for her and his vengeance got in the way of their love. Although Hamlet was cruel to Ophelia at times Hamlet truly did love her, yet he hid his feelings from her very well because he was afraid of being betrayed by the women he loved. Unfortunately for them, this led to Ophelia’s suicide. By the time that Hamlet could act on his love, it was already too late. I do not feel that Hamlet ever stopped loving Ophelia, but Hamlet caused a break in their relationship that could never be fixed.
