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.
The Prince exiles Romeo from Verona for the killing. He also adds that if Romeo returns, "that hour is his last". Lord Capulet, misinterpreting Juliet's grief, agrees to marry her to Count Paris and threatens to disown her when she refuses to become Paris's "joyful bride". When she then pleads for the marriage to be delayed, her mother rejects her. Romeo secretly spends the night in Juliet's chamber, where they consummate their marriage.
Thought the play, these lovers go through many obstacles that range from arranging a wedding and finding a time to meet to Juliet trying to get out of marrying Paris. The entire time fate is tossing them around. Romeo realizes this after he kills Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, in a brawl. At first, Romeo does not want to fight because Romeo and Juliet are already married at this time and he knows that they are cousins. Tybalt asks for a brawl from Romeo but Mercutio fights instead.
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.
One of the major reasons to Romeo and Juliet’s death was Paris who wanted to get married to Juliet and she did not want to. Paris goes to Lord Capulet and asks for Juliet hand in marriage (once again) and Lord Capulet finally agrees. As Lord Capulet says, “Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender of my child’s love.” He feels that Tybalt’s death is the reason for Juliet’s sorrows and thinks that getting her married will fix it. This was fated to happen because Romeo killed Tybalt and was thus banished causing the confusion for Juliet’s sorrows. Lord Capulet moved up the wedding date a day early to Wednesday.
Friar Laurence promises to send word to Romeo to meet her when the potion wears off and to take her to Mantua (where Romeo is residing, after being banished from Verona). Unfortunately, Romeo does not receive this message on time and upon hearing of her death, he goes to Juliet's empty tomb where he drinks poison and dies. When Juliet's potion wears off, she awakens to find her lover's corpse... ... middle of paper ... .... If Romeo hadn't gone to the party, he would never have met Juliet who would have been married off to Paris. In this case, the story would not have taken place.
Romeo was so depressed about his unrequited love for Rosaline when it just so happens, he goes to a masquerade party. There, he falls for Juliet, the daughter of Lord Capulet, and forgot about Rosaline. When they're finally torn apart, that's when both Romeo and Juliet realize they are from enemy families. Their love, of course, brings down their immediate marriage and Friar Lawrence agrees in hope to stop the feuding families. Unfortunately, Tybalt and Mercutio are killed and Romeo gets banished leaving Juliet without a husband or a cousin.
Near the beginning to the story Capulet decides to throw a party, where Juliet and Romeo first meet. Romeo was not an invited guest at this party because of the Capulet’s hatred for his family. He would not have even attended the party if it were not for Capulet sending a servant who could not read to deliver the invitations. The Servant happens to ask Romeo to read the invitation list for him. Romeo then finds out about the party and also that Rosaline will be attending.
Montague and his wife discuss Romeo’s strange behavior with Benvolio and ask him why he is acting that way. They find Romeo and have Benvolio talk to him. Benvolio advises him to forget Rosaline, but Romeo refuses. Scene 2 Act 1:Paris asked Capulet if it would be all right if he could marry Juliet. Capulet is not sure because Juliet is so young, however he ends up agreeing with Paris.
