Once you find your perfect lover, is it going to be all romantic and happy? Will you live a beautiful love life, like the one you always dreamed of? Here, we interview a beautiful lover Juliet, also known as the Capulet’s daughter, and learn about her love life with Romeo as well as some conflicts.
We’re assuming that the first time you met Romeo is memorable. What was your first impression of Romeo?
- First it was mysterious since I didn’t know him, but after talking for 5 minutes I realised that we’re perfect for each other. I was making tough references to pilgrims and saints to kind of push him away a bit, but he quickly joined in and made his way through to kiss me! As we kept talking I felt a strong attraction to him and I know he felt the same way to me too. Not only did he have such flawless appearance, but he was also intelligent and witty.
How did you feel when you realised he’s a Montague?
- Oh my, it was painful. A perfect man for me just appeared in my life, and the only thing that was dragging us apart was his name and the group he’s in, which in the end means nothing! The fact that I couldn’t do anything about it also really bugged me.
So how did it work out with Romeo?
- Pretty good actually. Although it was really tough to spend time with him since my parents will kill me if they find out. We met up after party and talked for a bit more. There we realised that we really love each other and built further plans. Then thanks to friar Lawrence, we got united as one. *smiles* I would also like to thank my dear Nurse, who has always been there to listen to me and also organised the marriage.
We heard you’re really close to Nurse. How’s the relationship between you two?
- Nurse is the person that I’ll go to if I have to talk about anything or ask something. To be honest, it’s really tough to open up to my parents and talk about my problems since it won’t change anything and just disturb them. Nurse is definitely the closest friend I have and I’m really happy that she is.
Were there any problems caused by having relationship with Romeo?
- I remember my mother mentioning this guy called Paris and suggesting marrying him, but I’m already married to Romeo, my true love, and we can’t be separated. Yet I don’t want to live against my parents, so there’s a bit of a problem there. But I don’t think they will tell me to marry him anytime soon.
What would you do if they tell you to marry Paris?
- If they do, I’ll go to friar Lawrence first. I believe the wise man can come up with a solution where I don’t have to betray my parents and still love Romeo. If he doesn’t have any, *sighs* well… I don’t think I can live while I’m married to a man other than Romeo.
Do you think the relationship with Romeo is worth the risks and problems?
- Romeo and I are joined, and I love him more than anything. There are some risks due to the ongoing conflict between our families, but I can endure them for the love I get from Romeo. Besides, Nurse and friar Lawrence are always there to help us, so I’m not really worried about the negative side of the relationship.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
- I’m not really sure. If our parents are still against our relationship, we’ll probably keep meeting during nights. I really hope they accept our relationship so that we can live together without concerns though.
Are you planning on having kids?
- Wow, I haven’t thought that far yet. But I wish Romeo and I can at least get together soon. We’re married, but we haven’t shared our love yet. You know, there’s that final step to truly be connected… *blushes* Oh sorry, to answer the question, if our parents allow us to continue our relationship, I guess we will have kids. But once again, I’m not sure if they ever will.
