At this party he met Juliet, and immediately fell in love with her. He later finds out that she is a Capulet, the rival family of the Montagues. He decides that he loves her anyway and they confess their love for each other during the very famous "balcony scene" in which they agreed to secretly marry the next day. Friar Lawrence agreed to marry them in an effort to end the feuding between the families. Unfortunately, the fighting gets worse and Mercutio (Montague) a good friend of Romeo ends up in a fight with Tybalt (Capulet), Juliet's cousin.
Romeo, only wanting to see a girl he loves, inadvertently causes Tybalt to despise him. In addition to strengthening the feud between the two houses, Romeo also meets Juliet during this party and they fall in love, but after being separated by the nurse, they each realize that their love is impossible due to their families’ dispute. Upon realizing that Romeo is a Montague, Juliet exclaims, “My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late!”(I, v, 151-152). Juliet immediately recognizes the conflict that Romeo has caused... ... middle of paper ... ...lips and in [her] cheeks”(V.iii.94-95).
Romeo been mad and angered due to the loss of his best friend jumps in and demands to fight Tybalt and slews Tybalt. The night before everything was fine but now Romeo is banished and Juliet is short of a cousin and a husband. Many of Romeo’s actions were rash and uncalled for but as a result to fate it all ties together to the beginning of Romeo and Juliet’s story. Halfway throughout the book fate unexpectedly twists the story to a darker note.
He decides that he loves her in spite of this, and so does Juliet. They confess their love for each other during the very famous balcony scene in which they agree to secretly marry the next day. Friar Laurence agrees to marry them in an attempt to end the fight between the families. Unfortunately, the fight between the Montagues and the Capulets gets worse and Mercutio (Romeo's best friend) ends up in a fight with Tybalt (Juliet's cousin). Tybalt kills Mercutio, which causes Romeo to kill Tybalt in a fit of rage.
Later that night they meet in secret and Juliet talks to Romeo from her balcony and they realise how much they are in love with each other and they decide to get married. Romeo then goes off to talk to Friar Lawrence to arrange the wedding. Juliet’s cousin Tybalt is very angry when he hears about Romeo gate crashing the party and vows to take revenge. When Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel he refuses, but Mercutio fights instead and as he dies he curses both families. Romeo is extremely upset about Tybalt killing Mercutio and in a fit of rage fights and kills Tybalt.
The Capulets then arranged a party for Paris and Juliet to meet. While on the street, Romeo and Benvolio are approached by a Capulet servant who invites them to the Capulet party. Romeo agrees to go because he knows that Rosaline will be there. Before Romeo goes to the party he has a dream that something bad will happen if he goes; Benvolio tells him that dreams are meaningless and they leave. When Romeo and his friends arrive they are discovered by Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, Who wants to kill them but is stopped by Juliet’s father.
This eventually leads them to forgiving the rival family for all the hateful acts that have occurred against one another. This is not the only forgiveness that is experienced in this play. Tybalt is a Montague with a fiery attitude. After catching Romeo at a party he was not supposed to be at, Tybalt had it out for Romeo. Just after Romeo and Juliet’s wedding, Tybalt comes looking for him wanting to fight.
Romeo first sees that “this night's revels” (I.iv.109), the night he meets Juliet, will “expire the term/ of a despised life” (I.iv.110), yet he still goes to the party with those risks. This decision sealed the fate of Romeo and Juliet. Tybalt, upon seeing Romeo at the party, promises that his confrontation, “now seeming sweet” (I.v.89), will “convert to bitter gall” (I.v.90). The curse Tybalt issues will later come true, upsetting the joy that Romeo has, bringing him and his love farther apart. Juliet was pulled from her dance as well, having been “interrupted by Juliet’s[her] mother” (Bloom 44), who had seen her flirting with another man; she talks to Juliet about marrying Paris.
The fact that the lovers are star-crossed, yet they still love each other is a bad decision because it leads to their doom. Second, in the third act Romeo “slew Tybalt” because of fate (R&J 3.1.178). Tybalt hates Romeo for crashing the party where Romeo met Juliet and he also hates Romeo because he is a Montague. Paris hates Romeo even when Romeo did not get a choice in what family he was born into, it was fate. Then, Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel but Tybalt ends up killing Mercutio.
Juliet’s parents (the Capulets) wanted her to marry a young man named Paris, which was not the wish of Juliet but to get married to her lover Romeo. But she (Juliet) is very obedient to her parents and her father told her she will be sent away from the house if she refuses to marry Paris. This gave Juliet a lot of disturbance and went to seek advice from a peacemaker called Friar Lawrence. The violence and conflict affected the whole play because both Romeo and Juliet died at the end of the play and also both parents of the lovers were at conflict. Also Romeo killed Tybalt (a cousin of Juliet) for killing his friend Mercuito.
