Blogging about Romeo and Juliet.
Romeo and Juliet families were enemies, but in a feast Romeo fell in love with Juliet.
He didn’t know that she was playing theater.
In this time the father chose a man for the daughter, they could not select a man themself.
In Romeo and Juliet´s case women’s right was insignificant. Women did not have the right to play theater and select a love to marry with.
Juliet was forced to marry a man who her father had selected.
The result was that Juliet and Romeo had to keep their love secret.
One might wonder why a women`s voice did not matter.
The people at that time probably did not think that love is important.
Women were not allowed to play theater, and you wonder why men thought so and why women were not able?!
Behind men`s laws about women there were no reasonable reasoning.
In the movie you can see already that Romeo and Juliet think that it is wrong that Juliet is forced to marry another man she doesn´t love.
After I`ve seen the movie I think that the man Juliet is forced to marry does not seem to understand anything about love.
The strange thing is that the mother or they other people around Romeo and Juliet have an opinion about that men decide everything around the women, everyone accepts everything.
Romeo and Juliet were brave who stood up for their love.
Who knows what had happened if people had been told about their meeting?!
The movie is a good example of how love wins and conquers all.
At the end of the movie enough people started to understand that you can not force someone to marry. People saw real love.
It was probably terrible for women when they were ruled by the men in society. Society was forced to find a change to make them equal.
