He denies the fact that he could be caught because he rambles on about the fact that it will not matter if he is found, for he is with his one true love and that is all that matters. Romeo proclaims to Juliet that, “I have night’s cloak to hide me from their sight; And but thou love me, let them find me here. My life were better ended by their hate than death prorogued, wanting of thy love.” (Act , Scene ) He again has come to risking his life for just a simple chat with Juliet. He is blinded by love and ignores the fact that if he were to be caught, it would ruin him. Being so infatuated by their love, Romeo suggests the possibility of marriage, not keeping in mind everything that could result in doing so. Being in close relations with their pastor, Friar Laurence, Romeo requests of him to finalize their marriage and to give them a blessing in the church. Friar Laurence, overjoyed, tells Romeo, “So smile the heavens upon this holy act that after-hours with sorrow chide us not.” (Shakespeare Act , Scene ) He wishes that the heavens will bless their marriage and that Romeo and Juliet will not grow to regret their vows in their future. Romeo thanks him for his blessing and expresses to the Friar, “Amen, amen! But come what sorrow can, it cannot countervail the exchange of joy that one short minute gives me in her sight.

He has fully given his every minute and dedication to Juliet. He wants to be with her every second of every long lasting day, even when life is at stake. Juliet is more keen to knowing the risks of being together and how it could affect their life, but Romeo still fails to see how it can endanger several people not just himself. At one point Juliet tries to get him to go to Mantua where he can be safe and no one can get hurt. “”Yond light is not daylight; I know it I. It is some meteor that the sun exhales To be to thee this night a torchbearer And light thee on thy way to Mantua. Therefore stay yet; thou needst not to be gone.” (Shakespeare Act 3, Scene 5). If Romeo would have listened he could have been had the chance to be saved from death, but he fails to leave her and instead he argued, ““Let me be ta’en, let them put me to death. I am content, so thou wilt have it so … I have more care to stay than will to go. Come, death, and welcome! Juliet wills it so. How is’t, my soul? Let’s talk; it is not day. ( Shakespeare Act 3, Scene 5). Romeo saying this even frightens Juliet for he is shouting to the world that Juliet wants death, not realizing that she wishes not want to perish. He is oblivious to the fact that what he has been doing, is hurting Juliet and her will to live. He is constant with wanting to be loved and for him, that is something that cost him his life.
