Romeo and Juliet did not have to keep their love a secret. They could have told their parents about their matrimony. Then, Juliet's parents would have canceled her wedding to Paris seeing that she was already married. If this occurred, then Juliet would not have taken the potion, and her death would’ve been prevented, along with Romeo's death. This would have also prevented the way her father wondered, “Doth she not count her blest, Unworthy as she is, that we have wrought so worthy of a gentleman to be her bride?” (Romeo and Juliet 3.
al 33). He believed that marrying Romeo and Juliet would bring the two families together, and the families would no longer remain enemies. The decision to marry the couple proved tragic for Friar Lawrence. Their marriage was a disaster waiting to happen. Marrying Romeo and Juliet allowed the couple to continue seeing one another and further their relationship.
But still we can match some characteristics and things of the two characters. The biggest similarity is of course that they both fell in love with Juliet, and that they want to marry her very quickly. Romeo and Paris are also both self-centered and selfish: Romeo is selfish when he doesn’t think about what Juliet will be put through if she goes about marrying him with the Friar. He doesn’t realize that her father and mother
Reckless Decisions In William Shakespeare’s play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the Capulet and the Montague families create a boundary between the love of Romeo and Juliet. Throughout the play, the audience believes that the couple are “star-crossed lovers,” or that fate destined them to be together. However, is this true? Rather than fate having ultimate control, one is able to make accurate decisions for themselves to control the events that will happen. It might have all been a coincidence.
(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.
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.
In the play “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare love is an important theme. In this play, Juliet and Romeo fall in love while Romeo is trying to get over Rosalind and Juliet is having an arranged marriage, their families are also feuding. In Shakespeare's play, Mercutio, Romeo and Juliet all have different views of love. Mercutio’s view of love is very humorous and not true, Romeo’s view of love is hopeless; he likes being in love, but does not like love itself. Lastly, Juliet’s view of love is logical; she does not follow love blindly.
In the play Romeo and Juliet, many conflicts had made the play very interesting and kept your attention. Romeo and Juliet had fallen in love but then found out that their families don't like each other. They both ended up dying. I feel as if Friar Lawrence was most responsible for the outcome in Romeo and Juliet because he married them and gave Juliet the potion. Many other things would have happened if Friar did not get involved.
Without the feud, Juliet would be free to marry Romeo with no problem. The Capulet-Montague feud caused many problems in the lives of Romeo and Juliet. When Juliet is told by Capulet to “get thee to Church on Thursday, or never look me in the face” sparks many disagreements between the family and confusion for Juliet. Although Capulet had no idea of Romeo and Juliet’s marriage, he should have been more kind and less forcing when presenting Juliet with the offer. If this was the case, Juliet may not have felt so driven to take the potion and fake her death.
Act 3 Scene 5 Analysis In Act 3 scene 5 Romeo and Juliet have just woken up. Romeo says he must leave but Juliet doesn't want him to go: "Thou need'st not to be gone." Shakespeare coveys a loving and caring atmosphere through his use of language in this scene: "believe me, love, it was the nightingale." Capulet decides Juliet will get married to Paris in three days time. It is important this is revealed before the scene as it creates dramatic irony because the audience knows such a significant detail of the play, yet Juliet doesn't, even though it's her getting married.
