Relationships with parents aren't always fatherly or motherly. Sometimes you can share this relationship with someone not related to you. In the play "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare Romeo shares a son-to-father relationship with Friar Laurence. Montague does try to make a relationship with Romeo but Romeo doesn't seem to want to as well. Romeo's relationship with his father is meaningless but that is not so with the Friar. Comparing the two relationships reveals that his with the Friar is much greater than his with his father. Romeo's relationship with Lord Montague doesn't really mean much to Romeo. Romeo, in the play, shows much respect when talking to Montague. He shows no form of feelings but to show his father that he is respectful towards him. Throughout the play Romeo seems to not care what Montague thinks. Romeo also does not express his feelings to his father. When Romeo is sadden by the rejection of Rosaline Montague makes in effort to comfort his son but Romeo doesn't pay much attention to Montague. When Romeo finally meets Juliet, his lover, he decides not to tell Montague which almost outlines his relationship with Montague. If Romeo's relationship with Montague was anything near father-to-son he would of mentioned Juliet to him. Romeo does not have a very strong relationship with Montague at all. Romeo's relationship with Montague is totally unlike his with Friar Laurence. It is very obvious that Romeo completely trusts Friar Laurence. When Romeo meets Juliet he only tells the friar. Romeo communicates with the Friar like a son and father should. Romeo explains his feelings for Juliet to the friar. Romeo also only goes to the Friar when he needs assitance. Whenever Romeo is Banished for the killing of Tybalt, Romeo turns to the Friar and hides in his cell because he wants to see Juliet again. Friar Laurence is definitely the fatherly figure in Romeo's corrupt life. Romeo's relationship with Friar Laurence is more developed than his with Montague. Throughtout the play Romeo speaks his mind to Friar Laurence and tells him exactly whats going on. In contrast, he doesn't tell Montague more than he has to. Romeo doesn't even really have a decent conversation with Montague. Romeo speaks to Montague with much respect and discipline like a butler would do to his master. Romeo speaks freely without censorship to the Friar and tells him exactly what is on his mind. When Romeo seeks help he goes to Friar Laurence not Montauge. Romeo never goes to Montague for anything. When Romeo mentions his love for Juliet he goes to the Friar. When Romeo was banished and needed help, he goes to Friar. The gap in Romeo's relationship with Montague is filled by his with Friar Laurence. Romeo's relationship with the Friar is the opposite of his with Montague. Friar Laurence has a much more stronger relationship with Romeo than Montauge. Biologically Montague is Romeo's father, but mentally Friar Laurence is Romeo's true father.
