Although we believe she is ready to marry, he is willing to let her make the ultimate decision. My approval and a fair voice. Naturally, by Act 3, Scene 5, both of Juliet's parents — (The entire section contains 2 answers and 666 words.) Begin your 48-hour free trial to have access to this and hundreds of other answers.
You can be shriveled and married (2.4.183-186). He wants Juliet to tell her parents that she's going to confession, which explains why she's in Friar Lawrence's cell, and that's when they'll marry. We do not get to see Romeo and Juliet's wedding, although it would take place shortly after Act 2, Scene 6.
Many people think that Romeo and Juliet is the only marriage on Shakespeare's birthday. But there are other weddings that also happen on his birthday. Here are two others:
In 1608, Thomas Watson married Elizabeth Freeman in a church in London. They had three children before Elizabeth died in 1618. Thomas then married another woman, but he never married again after the death of his first wife. He died in 1654 at the age of 63.
In 1615, Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, married Anne Browne. She was the daughter of Sir Anthony Browne, who was ambassador to France. They had one son before she died in 1641. After her death, he married another woman. He died in 1668 at the age of 76.
These are just a few of the many marriages that have been reported by historians to have happened on Shakespeare's birthday.
Paris approaches Lord Capulet for permission to marry Juliet early in the play (act 1, scene 2). Lord Capulet does not say nay, but does advise Paris to wait. Lord Capulet eventually concludes that Juliet is too young to marry. But, as I previously stated, my child is still a stranger in the world. She needs a protector, even if that protection comes from her father's house.
As for Paris himself, he is clearly in love with Juliet and wants to make her his wife. However, like most people in the play, he has been led down the path of violence and revenge by the evil Duke Frederick. So, when Paris asks Lord Capulet for permission to marry, it is not out of respect, but rather because he believes it will benefit him in some way.
In short, yes, Paris does ask Lord Capulet for permission to marry Juliet. However, there is no indication in the text that they do so because they are children and the law prohibits them from marrying without their parents' consent. Rather, it seems more likely that they go ahead with the marriage anyway. After all, they have already spent several months together in secret, so it isn't as if they need Lord Capulet's approval to get married.
What does Juliet say would happen to her if Romeo marries? Because she adores Romeo and does not wish for him to be snatched by another female, she says that she would die.
The word "die" here doesn't mean physical death but rather an emotional one. She would abandon life and become a shadow of herself.
Romeo says that he fears for her life because he loves her too much. He asks her what she would do if he left Verona for work or business elsewhere. She replies that she would follow him but that she could not live without him. This shows that even though she wants him to stay with his wife, she would be devastated if he left her.
They conclude that they would be better off dead than living apart. This shows that their love is so strong that it can withstand any obstacle.
The brevity of her responses shows Juliet isn't really interested, but her obedience to her parents is clear. When Lady Capulet asks Juliet how she feels about getting married, Juliet replies, "It is an honour that I dream of." Her voice breaking at the end of the sentence shows that even though she doesn't feel excited or happy about the marriage, she knows it is something that must be done.
Juliet believes that marrying Paris will bring her family fame and fortune, but once she sees his true character, she realizes that it is not what it seems. In fact, it is her own father who ends up doing the bargaining with Paris for a marriage contract. When he fails, he blames his failure on Juliet's refusal to marry anyone.
In short, Juliet says nothing because there is nothing she can say that would make her mother let go of her wish to see her daughter married off. Even though it breaks Juliet's heart, she does as she is told by her parents.
Act 1, Scene 2 of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet: Paris requests Capulet for permission to marry Juliet. Capulet agrees on one condition: that Paris bring him back the head of a wolf.
Paris goes to the forest of Arden to find a werewolf but instead finds Romeo. They fall in love and Paris brings back the head of a wolf as promised. The next day, Montague demands that Paris bring him the head of a man. When Paris refuses, Montague attacks him and in the scuffle, Paris is killed.
Juliet cries over Paris' body and then decides to go to the Capulets' house to beg them for her own death. But just before she reaches them, she is hit by a crossbow bolt sent by Montague. She survives but lies unconscious in a bed of herbs until Romeo comes to visit her in her sickbed. He tells her that he loves her and they plan to be married as soon as she gets better. Then Juliet wakes up.
They tell Prince Escalus that there is a feud between the Montagues and the Capulets and ask him to intervene. However, the prince wants nothing to do with it because both families are important allies of his.
Juliet then thinks that Romeo may show his love for her by proposing to marry her. This would be a lifelong vow, not a "rash" or "sudden" one. Romeo vows to contact Juliet the next day, "at the hour of nine." He wants her to know that he loves her and that he's not dead.
This is what you should know about Romeo and Juliet. Do NOT watch this movie if you're scared of blood or violence. It is very sad but not too violent.
What is her father's opinion on permitting her to marry? Juliet is thirteen years old. Capulet believes Juliet is too young to marry. He wants her to wait two years before getting married. Capulet does not want any feud between his family and the Montagues. He knows that if he forbids her from marrying, then the Montagues will be angry with him and this could lead to a war. So, he decides to allow her to marry but only after she has waited two years.
Now, here is where things get complicated. You see, Paris also loves Juliet and he doesn't want her to marry just anyone. So, he goes to see Capulet to ask for Juliet's hand in marriage. When Capulet agrees, Paris takes revenge on the family by bringing them the evil King Henry. The people of Verona love the king so they all go to fight in his army against the French. Some of them die fighting and others return home wounded. This makes everyone in the family hate the king even more and you can be sure that no one will go to his aid if he needs help.
So now that we know how her father feels about the matter and that Paris is willing to give up his claim on her if she refuses him twice, Juliet decides to marry Paris rather than waste time waiting for someone who will never love her back.
