hey, i've been given an extract from line 44 of act 2 scene 3 to line 64. The question is "how Shakespeare presents the love relationship in this extract and throughout the play". The second half is much easier but the extract has barely anything to say about the relationship.... would anyone be able to help? thanks sooo much!

Friar Lawrence
God pardon sin! Wast thou with Rosaline?

Romeo
With Rosaline? My ghostly father, no;
I have forgot that name, and that name’s woe.

Friar Lawrence
That’s my good son, but where hast thou been then?

Romeo
I’ll tell thee ere thou ask it me again.
I have been feasting with mine enemy,
Where on a sudden one hath wounded me
That’s by me wounded; both our remedies
Within thy help and holy physic lies.
I bear no hatred, blessed man, for lo
My intercession likewise steads my foe.

Friar Lawrence
Be plain, good son, and homely in thy drift,
Riddling confession finds but riddling shrift.

Romeo
Then plainly know my heart’s dear love is set
On the fair daughter of rich Capulet.
As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine,
And all combin’d, save what thou must combine
By holy marriage. When and where and how
We met, we woo’d, and made exchange of vow,
I’ll tell thee as we pass, but this I pray,
That thou consent to marry us today.

"Starting with this conversation, discuss the extent to which Shakespeare suggests that Romeo and Juliet have rushed unwisely into a love relationship.
Write about:
1) how Shakespeare presents the love relationship in this extract
2) how Shakespeare presents the love relationship in the overall play"

hmm that extract is not too great

I guess you can say that Romeo and Juliet have barely known each other, yet they are rushing into marriage- this is unwise as they have no consent from their parents, which is unusual as most Elizabethan marriages are arranged due to the parents viewing it as an opportunity to grow in reputation. Furthermore, they are both in opposing enemy families, thus they haven't thought clearly about the consequence, and let the impulsiveness from their relationship suggests that they have rushed their love relationship unwisely.
We also know they have rushed unwisely as they are way too emotional, even when they set eyes on each other- the relationship is doomed to fail when Romeo says "where on a sudden one hath wounded me, that's by me wounded," implying that he is hurt by his love towards Juliet, which also foreshadows that he will be completely broken when she sees Juliet "dead"- this further shows they have rushed their relationship.

this probably didn't help much tbh, but ngl it is a hard extract
