Isabella choice and how strict they are, I would

Isabella CanalesMs.AlbaEnglish    January 15, 2018                                 There’s No Such Thing As “Fate”          In the play, Romeo and Juliet are young teenagers who were so in love and simply wanted to end up for the rest of their lives together like any other couple who is deeply in love would. But unfortunately not everyone has happy endings since these lovers had a rivalry against their families for years, it was nearly impossible that these two could end up together which makes them make terrible decisions through their free will leading them to a tragic ending. These two lovers are said to be supposed “star -crossed” lovers and that fate is to blame for everything that is happening. But they are not realizing that the decisions they are making through their rough path is what really leads them from one problem into a bigger problem and it is not really destiny planning their ending.As mentioned previously, these two lovers’ families had a rivalry against each other and for us the readers, it’s pretty ironic that their children would end up falling in love. Before Mercutio got killed by Tybalt, Romeo mentioned, “I do protest I never injured thee, But love thee better than thou canst devise Till thou shalt know the reason of my love; And so, good Capulet, which name I tender As dearly as mine own, be satisfied.”(Act 3 Scene 1 lines 63-67)Romeo is saying that he is avoiding to have a fight with Tybalt since he is married to Juliet Capulet and he tenders the name but still ends up killing Tybalt after Mercutio got killed. Everyone might have the same reaction as Romeo if someone close to us would get killed such as, pain, and anger, but who would have thought that he was going to kill Tybalt which makes me think that free will is really playing the role in this scene, even when he specifically said he was not going to do it in the first place. Not only did he kill Tybalt but by doing that the only thing he accomplished, was him getting exiled from Verona tearing himself apart from Juliet making it harder for both of them to see each other. It was really his decision to kill Tybalt because he could have controlled himself and act in another way but instead, he overreacted and made things worse.Now everyone is blaming Romeo for the current events, but let’s not forget that Juliet is involved in this situation too. I mostly blame Juliet because she knowing that her parents want for her to marry a boy of their choice and how strict they are, I would reconsider my choices more wisely. When Juliet is in her house and her parents are talking to her about marrying Paris this is her response, “Not proud you have, but thankful that you have.Proud can I never be of what I hate,But thankful even for hate that is meant love.”(Act 3 Scene 5 lines 146-148) Capulet was not taking it and he said, “Graze where you will, you shall not house with me. Look to’t, think on’t; I do not use to jest.Thursday is near; lay hand on heart, advise:An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend; An you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, For, by my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee, Nor what is mine shall never do thee good.” (Act 3 Scene 5 lines 185-195) Capulet is telling Juliet that he will kick her out of the house and will not help her financially if she refuses to marry Paris. This is the perfect excuse that Juliet could have chosen in order to run away with Romeo, because she knew in the first place that if she wanted to be with Romeo somehow she had to escape and even though it’s not something that we want to hear from our parents she had the chance right in her face and she didn’t take it and it was her decision again, I see free will acting towards Romeo and Juliet and not destiny.People can fall in love at first sight, just like Romeo and Juliet did, but it doesn’t mean that you will marry each other the next day. To really get to know someone, you have to meet them first and let time do its job. In contrast, Romeo and Juliet saw each other, fell in love and decided to get married the next day, as Juliet said, “Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow, By the one that I’ll procure tomorrow to come to thee, Where and what time thou wilt perform the rite; And all my fortunes at thy foot i’ll lay And follow thee my lord throughout the world.” (Act 1 Scene 4 lines 144-148). They rushed their relationship to prove that their love was real but it lead them into making decisions that they soon will be regretting. Romeo said, “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 1 Scenes 2 lines 76-78) Meaning that he would prefer to die loving her than live and hate her, but then he felt devastated when he saw Juliet “dead.” That is another example of free will, since Romeo felt desperate he chose to kill himself instantly and didn’t even hesitate once, he simply chose to end his life.In conclusion there’s no such thing as destiny, the choices you make during your life will bring you to where you are today. Romeo and Juliet were too young to understand true love, both of them had never ever experienced love and when they saw each other both of them felt the tension but in reality it was just physical love because they didn’t even know each other that much and were already making quick and wrong decisions to save their relationship, they were not mature and were too desperate. The only result that turned out to be good was when both of the families the Capulets and Montagues decided not to fight anymore.who would have thought that he was going to kill Tybalt which makes me think that free will is really playing the role in this scene, even when he specifically said he was not going to do it in the first place. Not only did he kill Tybalt but by doing that the only thing he accomplished, was him getting exiled from Verona tearing himself apart from Juliet making it harder for both of them to see each other. It was really his decision to kill Tybalt because he could have controlled himself and act in another way but instead, he overreacted and made things worse.Now everyone is blaming Romeo for the current events, but let’s not forget that Juliet is involved in this situation too.
