Juliet

Dear Agony Aunt

I’m in love with the son of my dad’s enemy and we have married in secret. The problem is that my dad wants me to marry this other guy who I don’t even like! What can I do to put him off?

  1. Dear Juliet,

    I think you should not tell your dad because if you tell him he would go to the Montagues and try to kill Romeo. So please do not tell him.

  2. Dear Juliet,

    Tell him you don't have any money and someone has stolen all your money.

  3. Dear Juliet:
    I understand you. You know what? You just need time. You need to talk to your dad and let him know about Romeo and what a good man he is. I believe your dad one day will understand. Don’t give up!

  4. Dear Juliet,
    If you truly love him, tell your dad. If you keep your dreams of loving him everything will work out fine. In the long run you will be with the one person that you are truly meant to be with.

  5. Dear Juliet,
    You should tell your parents that you are married but not who to. Then that way your parents won’t make you marry the guy that you don’t care for. Then if they find out then they tell them, “I wouldn’t have it any other way”.

  6. Dear Juliet,
    Follow your heart. Love who you want to love. Do not marry Paris, for you do not love him. Man cannot control affairs of the heart; you are the only one who can know how you truly feel.

  7. stand up to your dad mate, and tell him that you do not love Paris. Romeo is your one and only love, we all know it.

  8. Dear Juliet,
    It would be best to tell your father as soon as possible. If he finds out from somebody else, he would be much angrier if you didn’t tell him.

  9. Dear Juliet,
    Just tell your dad the truth. If he is the guy you love then that is it. It is your decision not your dads.

  10. Running away isn't a smart idea, although you love him, you are only 13. Don't try to go too fast through life. Try and speak to his parents, BUT DON'T MENTION THAT YOU LOVE THEIR SON. Let him talk to your parents and try to convince them to make a truce with each other. You will need your family just incase this relationship doesn't work out.

Introduction

I am Juliet, the daughter of Lord and Lady Capulet. My mother and father want me to marry their chosen suitor, Paris, but I am in love with Romeo. Romeo is the son of my father’s rival and therefore we have to keep our relationship a secret. Even after killing my cousin, Tybalt, I remain loyal to Romeo. When he is banished from Verona by the Prince, I am hopeful of our reunion and seek advice from Friar Lawrence to avoid my parents’ will. I am scared to take the potion the Friar has given me, but I believe it is worth risking my life to be with Romeo again. When I wake up in the family tomb and see Romeo dead beside me, I am distraught and see no other option but to take my own life.
