In Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the children of two rival houses fall in love but were destined to die tragically from the beginning they met. The events causing the death of the star crossed lovers could be traced to Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. Mercutio is the one and only best friend to Romeo. He is very hot tempered, comical, and seems to view life in an unserious manner. He actively teases Romeo about his love life and is the person to stir trouble.
Friar Lawrence realizes this and tries to get Romeo to slow down at first by saying, “Young men’s love lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (2.2.71-71). Romeo saw how beautiful Juliet was and immediately knew he had to have her. It was not love controlling him at first, but lust. As soon as Romeo realized that Juliet was a Capulet, he wanted her even more. Romeo was purely being driven by greed.
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is the most famous love story in the English literary tradition. The events of these young lovers contrast hatred and revenge with love and a secret marriage, forcing the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly and die tragically in despair. Mercutio was the loyal, witty, and devoted best friend of Romeo who was neither a Montague or a Capulet which gave an interesting perspective of the young lovers. Mercutio, is the absolute opposite of Romeo, being that he is a quirky skeptic and not at all a die hard romantic that believes love conquers all. With Mercutio being such a skeptic, he mocks love and makes fun of his best friend Romeo when he finds out he has fallen in love with a Capulet; Mercutio states “Romeo, Humors!
When a teenager has an identity crush the parents should try to understand where the teenager is coming from looking up to their identity crushes and always try to be understanding and supportive towards their children’s identity crushes.

Romeo is much more compulsive than Juliet in the play "Romeo and Juliet." First, Romeo is more compulsive than Juliet because he claims to be in love with Rosaline before even knowing her. Romeo tells his cousin Benvolio, "Out of her favor where I am in love" (Shakespeare 1.1.178). This quote shows that Romeo falls in love too quickly when it 's clear Rosaline has no interest in him. Second, Romeo is more compulsive because he get 's worked up over a dream.
Romeo’s complaints give a sliver of insight into the duality of all things, which is a strong, central theme in the play “Romeo and Juliet”. At this moment, Romeo’s heart is heavy as he longs for Rosaline’s affection whilst knowing he cannot gain it. He asks his cousin, Benvolio, to let him hold the torch so that “Being but heavy, [he can] bear the light” (Shakespeare 1.4.12-14). The contrast of his dark, moody, and wallowing attitude against the bright burning light of the torch, suggests that some new and burning desire might enter into the scene soon.

Love is a dangerous thing. It can overpower a person’s mind completely, often blinding a person to reason, causing a person to act in irrational ways they normally wouldn’t.

This is demonstrated throughout the play when Romeo and Juliet rush to get married, Romeos and Juliet’s deaths, when Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo and Juliet’s first meeting and Juliet’s plan to fake her death.
