Higher than the soul can hope, or mind can hide

 
 
From the moment Juliet and Romeo met, they were consumed with one another. The title of this blog is a comment made by Juliet after her first meeting with Romeo. Now, the plot has taken an unexpected turn: Romeo is banished, Juliet is arranged to marry Paris, and Friar Lawrence is caught in the middle. As we began to read Act IV, I ask you to questions the decisions made by Friar Lawrence and Juliet? Is Juliet right to fake her death? Is Juliet making a mature decision, or is she simply acting on emotion? Could a plan such as this be justified in our current society?

No, she is not right to fake her death.She made that decision because of her love for Romeo.That decision is not mature at all. A mature person would have just told their parents and got it over with.That problem would easily be justified today because you cannot get married twice so she would end up teling her parents anyway.

I think Juliet is doing the wrong thing by faking her death. The only reason she's doing this is because she's being dramatic about her love for Romeo.I mean they've only known each other for like a week! She's not even thinking about her family! It's all emotion. No a plan like this couldn't be justified in our current society. Potions like this don't even exist!

Juliet is making the wrong decission because, she is to much in love with Romeo and not even thinking about her family. Like wouldnt they figure out sooner or later that she married Romeo. i think she should have just told her mom she got married in the first place instead of faking her death and having to leave forever.

i think there plan wont work at all. her dad will move the wedding sooner and will not suceed with the plan. if the marriage stayed the same there plan would work real good.and juliet is a stupid girl for taking the risk of killing herself well facking the kill .she might die in her sleep.

i think that juilet is making the wrong decission because, she has the rest of her life and she can just run away and not drink the possion. she is smarter then that. And what if the possion dont work and she dont wake up then she did it for nothing.
