Romeo and Juliet – Act IV Questions
1) Romeo and Paris are similar and different in multiple ways. They are similar in their love for Juliet. They both have strong feelings of love towards her. Another reason they are similar is due to the fact that they are both very quick to fall in love. It is displayed in Romeo when he switches from Rosolina to Juliet. It shows in Paris when he was in love the moment lord caplet had informed him of being married to Juliet. The main differences between the two is that Paris believes he owns Juliet and the love is one sided compared to Romeo who treats her as an equal and the love is coming from both.
2) Friar Lawrence ask Juliet to carry out a dangerous plan instead of just going to her parents and explaining that she was already married to Romeo because Friar is aware that her parents will not listen to her and continue to marry her with Paris.

The Nurse was the only person apart from Juliet in that argument who understood she was married to Romeo. Juliet curses once the Nurse leaves and that is when the relationship takes it's...
