This feud even has the citizens of the town, Verona, involved in this ancient rivalry. The children, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, fall deeply into a love that is forbidden.

This sentence really means that Romeo and Juliet’s new, young love is no longer as perfect as it once was; there is now something that has “stained it”, or has ruined how pure the love once was. Due to this act, the people of Verona banishes Romeo, a punishment more awful than all else.

Romeo chooses to love Juliet, a member of the family that has been rivaling his own for many years. Furthermore, he made the decision to kill Tybalt out of revenge, despite the repercussions he knew he would face for killing Juliet’s cousin. When he made this choice, he doomed their love, knowing this would further seal the hatred between families. Finally, Romeo acts with impulse and emotion instead of ration when he assumes Juliet has died, by choosing to drink poison, thus resulting in Juliet’s death by dagger. Fate does not control Romeo’s actions, though he seems to blame fate; rather, his destiny is chosen by his own careless decisions.
By going from lust to love, Romeo and Juliet’s true love conveys Shakespeare’s message that love is stronger than hate.
