Thesis: The nurse's loyalty to Juliet, in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, serves to fuel Juliet's irresponsible behavior. (end of your introduction paragraph)
Paragraph # 1
Claim: When the nurse speaks to Romeo on Juliet's behalf, she provides Juliet the opportunity to defy her parents.
Textual Evidence: In Act II, scene V, the nurse reports to Juliet the outcome of her conversation with Romeo, “Your love says, like an honest gentleman, and a/courteous, and a kind, and a handsome, and I warrant,/a virtuous—where is your mother?” (lines 55-57).
Elaboration: Due to the nurse's inappropriate involvement, Juliet makes the mistake of marrying Romeo in secret. A mother would not allow this, but the nurse's dedication to Juliet crosses a line that ultimately leads to Juliet's demise.
