Jacobs 1Andy JacobsMrs. BarthHonors English I Period 36 March 2014An Eternity's LoveIn William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers' love holds true no matter the length of time they have spent together.Romeo and Juliet have their eternal love for each other as long as their eternities may last. From the first day they met, when Romeo goes to the Capulet party he passes by many people. He catches a glimpse of Juliet, and he immediately has a passion for her at first sight. Naturally, humans, just as all other living beings, been made to find partners to reproduce and continue the species in with their lifetime, or else the species just would not be here today. So one trait needed to continue life is to define friend from foe is a driving trait, this is the basis of any relationship. So love at first sight is a three minute analysis of someone (Fisher). Instincts in both Romeo and Juliet's body do an initial check on any potential mate. They mark out the other person and continue to monitor the other person as they close in on each other. They are only together a few minutes before Romeo has to leave, but in that time, they are self-destining themselves to be together. As time passes, Romeo and Juliet spend as much time as they can together from then on, but even that time is too brief. So they try to be together with that little time that they actually have regardless of their separating barriers of family and time. True love is not based on how long a couple is together, but rather the intensity and happiness of their relationship (Ben-Zeev). Although Romeo and Juliet are in love for a short amount of time in their lives, that short amount of time encompasses the only true love that they may ever know. Though their love may be short, it is true. Near the end of the play, Juliet has a dilemma of having to choose which life to live: A nice and happy life with her family while marrying Paris, or the adventurous love life with Romeo. She chooses the road out of Verona to follow Romeo until there is no return. Juliet goes over everything that could go wrong in the Friar's plan to reunite the following groups: the families of the Montagues and Capulets and the couple of Romeo and Juliet. Juliet has to deal with living a regular life being married to Paris without Romeo or take a chance and trust that Romeo will save her in time to get her out of the box. The box which is a cage in which she has a few days until she dies of the lack of basic animal needs. She has to ponder if she is willing to spend all of that time, which may be indefinite, stuck in a casket. Juliet considers the alternatives while saying, "So early waking, what with loathsome smells,/ And shrieks like mandrakes torn out of earth,/ That living mortals, heaving them run mad-/ O, if I wake, shall I not be distraught,/ Environed with all these hideous fears" (Shakespeare IV.iii.47-50). She voices all the possible bad situations that might come up in the few days locked in a casket and she still takes the potion to be with Romeo. She entrusts her entire life to someone she barely knows sacrificing her time to have a dreamless, potentially dangerous, sleep. It was planned that she be locked in a box for days if need be, a most uncomfortable way to spend one's time in such a fast point in her life where tragic events that seem to be happening every day. This true love goes to show that time has no meaning on their relationship as long as they are together. Juliet spends some of the end of her life locked in a box fully depending on Romeo's return to save her from a scary death in the catacombs. To do this he must complete many tasks within around three days or else Juliet may die of dehydration or something else. Those would activities would have to be done quickly: to have a friend of the Friar's send a covert message to Romeo, for him to receive it, to rush back to Verona, creep past the night's watch, get in to the cemetery gates, and have the means of opening her coffin whether it have a solid stone top or a locked case. In the end she was able to put her faith in him without even as much confirmation such as if the letter is sent. All of this and she knows no matter the distance, danger, and lack of time there is, he uses up anything and everything to come and save her. All of this is to be together even if just for one last time. So after setting sight on love, being in each other's company, and trusting their partner entirely, Romeo and Juliet have found their match in themselves for all of their time on Earth together.Works CitedFisher, Helen.
