It’s crazy how their worlds changed in a matter of days all because two people fell in love. How bad is forbidden love? It’s forbidden for a reason. People want what they can’t have and then when they get it, they have to face the consequences. The two star-crossed lovers in “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare decided to ignore
Both romeo and juliet believed that they could not live without one another so when romeo mistakenly thought juliet died, he killed himself which led to the death of juliet. Throughout the story, the recurring problem of the rising tensions between the two families always makes things harder and harder for romeo and juliet. Both romeo and juliet hate being montagues and capulets, and it is very clear and easy to see this because it is shown during the story when Juliet says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.’’
Romeo and Juliet is a well known tragic love story, written by William Shakespeare. The Montagues and Capulets’ fighting causes the death of their own children, because their poor parenting and lack of involvement in the children’s lives leads to Juliet and Romeo to keep this secret. The children knew their families would never let them marry; otherwise, they would have revealed their relationship to their parents. Aside from the main pair, it appears that Romeo and his friend Mercutio, have a relationship that leads to tragedy as well, through the murder of Mercutio. In this situation, Tybalt’s taught hatred of the Montagues lead him to start the fight in the first place, and he and Mercutio suffered at the hand of the Montagues and Capulets
The first reason that Romeo and Juliet are not in love due to the fact that they are too childish to fully understand what love is. During the famous balcony scene, Juliet says, “But to be frank, and give [my love to] thee again, And yet I wish but for the thing I have. My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.” (2.2.31-35).
Throughout the beginning of “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare, there was more than enough sorrow from Romeo’s feelings for Rosaline that he could not bear. It was his love for her that put depression upon his shoulders, for he was the one who fell in love with her before she rejected him. This substantiates that love isn’t perfect for every situation, and it doesn 't solve everything, but when used at the right moment, could change and hearten somebody’s life. After a few days, Romeo’s love for Rosaline was almost nothing compared to his love for Juliet. Act II, Scene 6, “But my true love is grown to such excess I cannot sum up sum of half my wealth.”
One of the most famous examples is a play based on Romeo’s and Juliet’s love. (Shakespeare, 1597) The play is considered to be a tragedy because of so many deaths due to the love of two protagonists. Both of lovers and their families suffer due to the effect of their love. Romeo and Juliet considered their love as one of a kind, so they got married as fast as possible.
One last reason William Shakespeare 's “The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet” does not represent what true love is, is because of Romeo and Juliet 's immaturity. We can tell that Romeo is immature because in Act 1 scene 2 Romeo says “ Not mad, but bound more than a madman is, Shut up in prison, kept without my food,Whipped and tormented (55-57).” This is how Romeo explains his suicidal feelings after Roseline broke up with him. Romeo was all devastated about Rosaline, but soon as he lays eyes on Juliet, he completely forgets about Rosaline and instantly falls in love with Juliet, this proves to us that Romeo is a player. Also, since Juliet is only just around fourteen years old, she has not even had a chance to meet other people or fully grow into her true self yet.
The parents’ rivalries caused the lovers to speak in secret and eventually get married in secret. They also planned to run away together, but in the end, both Romeo and Juliet and Pyramus and Thisbe died because they thought with their hearts rather than their heads. Both men were under the impression that their loves have died and overwhelmed with grief, they both killed themselves. In addition, the parents of the star-crossed lovers had tension. Due to the conflicts, the children (Romeo and Juliet// Pyramus and Thisbe) got married.
Choices and Consequences in Romeo & Juliet (ROUGH DRAFT) Many choices in Romeo & Juliet lead to Romeo and Juliet’s deaths, but the most responsible are the decisions of Romeo and Juliet. Even though the choices of people like Friar Laurence, Tybalt, and Lord Capulet lead to the deaths of Romeo & Juliet, the choices Romeo and Juliet make throughout the play ultimately leads to their death because of Romeo and Juliet’s decision to be married and Romeo’s decision to go to the party. Romeo’s choice to go the Capulet party is the most influential and contributing to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Due to Romeo’s depression Mercutio & Benvolio convince him to go to the Capulet party.
Not only did this hurt Jason, but it also hurt the Corinthian king,his daughter and many more. Medea felt justified in her homicidal acts because she had given up so much to be with Jason. Medea’s nurse explained how the main character abandoned her life for a man she believed she loved, “Sometimes she turns to look away, to call out for her father, her country and home: all abandoned and betrayed for a man who now abandons her, betrays her honor and her love. She has learned the hard way what it is to be an exile to had given up everything” ( lines 29-36.)
So to try and cheer up their daughter they try and marry her to another man to get her spirits up. This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents do not know that they are married. So to try and cheer up their daughter they try and marry her to another man to get her spirits

Fate and long-standing family feud is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet and all who were caught in the mix. People might think that Romeo is to blame for falling in love with a to-be-married woman. Others might think everything started when Tybalt wanted to fight Romeo because he was a Montague, which would still lead back to Romeo being the source of the problem. Many people could blame Romeo for being a Montague and falling in love with a Capulet, when he was still hung up on another girl. Romeo and Juliet were caught up in a long-standing feud.
