Juliet’s family, the Capulets, are influential, upper-class citizens, and so would be highly offended if Paris does not pay his respects to their deceased daughter. He would also lose the respect of Prince Escales, ruler of their city Verona, who refers to Paris as one of his “…brace of kinsmen (5. iii. Ln 295).” Paris may also entertain the pretense of love for Juliet in order to advance himself both economically and politically in society. If he cuts off his ties with Juliet’s family, they would not be eager to support his future exploits.
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.

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
Lancelot was guilty of treason to his friend, guilty of treason to the high king of England, and guilty of treason to himself. The major downfall of Lancelot was his immediate attraction to the worst person in the whole world to fall in love with: his best friend’s wife. Every free moment when Arthur wasn’t around, Lancelot and Guenever were doing something they shouldn’t have been doing Lancelot proclaims his continual love for Arthur: “He (Lancelot) had not buried his love for Arthur in his passion for Guenever…” (387). How can a honorable knight say that he has a passion for Arthur’s wife, while in the same breath saying that his love for Arthur has not been diluted by Guenever?

The trickery of love plays a proverbial role in “Much Ado About Nothing”. Beatrice and Benedick, having initially an antagonistic view on marriage, are deceived into loving one another, whilst Claudio deceives himself by allowing Don Pedro to woo Hero for him and by believing Don John the Bastard that Hero had been unfaithful the night before they wed. This portrays young Claudio as passive, flippant and inexperienced. The love between Hero and Claudio begins almost immediately when the young soldier Claudio returns from war, realising that he is deeply in love with Hero and wants to ask her father for permission to marry her. It is evident women in the early 1600’s

Her marriage to Francis Macomber is obviously not a happy one, but she refuses to divorce him because of his money, but Francis cannot divorce her because of her beauty. Margot is delighted when Francis runs from the lion; because she thinks it would give her more psychological control over him.
