They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival. But even before Juliet knew it was Romeo she said, “If he’s married, I think I’ll die rather than marry anyone else.”(1.5.134-135).

Romeo and Juliet also both give up welfare and security in order to be with each other and ultimately give up their lives, the greatest sacrifice. Romeo and Juliet rebel against all of their obligations to their family and society in order to follow their true feelings. Instead of marrying Paris, a wealthy and handsome count, Juliet defies her father’s wishes.

She knows that this would break society's rules by pursuing this love, but she does it anyway because it's her heart's desire. Furthermore, Romeo and Juliet's entire relationship was based on a secret and the lack of communication caused the relationship to end in a tragedy. The lack of communication led to Romeo killing himself, then Juliet killed herself after seeing him dead.

For once Juliet does not feel completely ready it is “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden” and “too like the lightning, which doth cease to be ere one can say ‘It lightens’.” (Act 2 Scene 2) for her. Juliet feels too overwhelmed by the sudden affection which is just like a lightning stroke. Yet Shakespeare displays an emancipatory access to woman kind, portrayed as Juliet, due to the reason that she stands up for her own created problems and in the long run matures as a self-confident woman.
This leads to Juliet wanting to die rather than marry a person she does not love. Juliet is determined to stay true to Romeo. Her willingness to die shows that she is deeply in love with Romeo.

Although she did question Romeo if his love was true, by the next moment she quotes,”I gave thee mine before thou didst request it: And yet I would it were to give again.” (3.1,L135) Interpreting Juliet’s quote, she talks as if she had already been willing to get married with him.
