The female character are passive.

Even when her father, the king want to marry her she did not defy, but instead went to her

Romeo and Juliet fell in love within mere seconds, without contemplating the consequences the love may cause. Willing to “Deny thy father and refuse thy name,” Juliet sacrifices her family for the adolescent romance (2.2.37). Passion blinds Juliet from reality, causing her to disregard their family complications. The young love promotes Juliet to risk her family for this young infatuation she possesses with Romeo. Ever since they laid eye’s on one another, Romeo and Juliet continuously formulate careless decisions, such as determining to get married.
Thus, that is the story of Romeo and Juliet; tragic and average. The whole story of Romeo and Juliet is nothing above an average love story about two teenagers who fall in love with one another. If you really think about it, it’s just like every other romance novel out there - it’s cheesy, romantic and has somewhat of a happy ending - and everyone loves it. Romeo and Juliet isn’t as great as some of the other plays Shakespeare has written because it was too predictable. The beginning of the play was way too predictable; Romeo and Juliet falling in love at first sight, especially when their families hate each other.
The notion that after all the time and trouble, he finally gets the girl is stunning to readers because such a long, grueling pursuit being fulfilled is an amazing feat; Gatsby is extraordinary for having defeated insurmountable odds fro the woman he loves. However, as with his money, by the novel 's end, his relationship with Daisy, too, fails. In the confrontational scene between Gatsby, Tom, and Daisy (with Jordan and Nick as spectators), Gatsby demands Daisy admit that she never loved Tom; but she cannot. Distraught with emotion, Daisy, exclaims to him, "I did love [Tom] once -- but I loved you too," which does not suffice for Gatsby. Gatsby wants Daisy 's whole love, her unadulterated and exclusive love, but is jarred by the startling reality that due to the passage of time, and the cruelty of fate, Daisy loved Tom when she could not love Gatsby.
