In the play "Romeo And Juliet" by William Shakespeare, the author shows us two different types of love - infatuation and lasting love. The trouble is that the love that Romeo and Juliet hope will be true lasting love is bitterly cut short before it has ever a chance of proving itself . We are all left guessing. Christian wedding vows lean heavily towards lifelong commitment to a future together, for better or for worse so presumably Romeo and Juliet were reasonably sure of a desire to keep to that or they would not have made them. They may have promised "til death us do part" and that bit was certainly true - although their short love did not have time to be tested by other attractions or rows. I think they both kept to the "love, honour,obey" part by their commitment to the Friar's daring plan.

This is a fairly interesting question.  I would think that the writing of vows and accepting of them might be a challenge because it indicates that there is a complete sense of knowing the other and a substantial emotional connection that is not as apparent in the text.  I think that some of the vows which would be interesting to gauge their affirmation or reaction towards asking them if they are going to be with one another for quite a long time.  The temporary nature of Romeo and Juliet's infatuation could be explored here.  Another vow would be whether both will love one another when they are older and less attractive by youthful standards.  There is an immediate link between them that is formed, in part, because they are not repulsive at which to look. It helps that they are beautiful to one another.  I think a vow of whether they can love one another after seeing them wake up in the morning or as they get older would be a worthy vow to pose.
