Therefore, the play expresses the danger of a love in which twopeople become the whole world to one another. To what extent do you agree ordisagree? The story of Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy. The two lovers go againsttheir families and against their hate to be together but they dont thinkabout the consequences, which in the end are devastating. Romeo and Julietengage in a love that they believe is the one true love.
They dont even knoweach other and dont know each others personality so they can only beattracted sexually. Instead of taking things slowly and getting to know eachother or on the other hand engage in a type of relationship just to satisfy eachothers desires they act like they have known each other for a long time and thatthey cant live one without the other. At the start of the play we see thatRomeo is in love with Roseline and that he only talks about her but when hemeets Juliet at the party he totally forgets Roseline and falls in love withJuliet. Friar Laurence clearly states this to Romeo: Is Rosaline, whom thoudidst love so dear, so soon forsaken? Young mens love then lies not truly intheir hearts, but in their eyes.
This is exactly how Romeo behaves. Juliet onthe other hand had to marry Count Paris so her love with Romeo is simply a wayto get out of it. She never had a relationship with a man and she didnt liketo have her first and only relationship with a man her parents arranged for her. She wanted freedom and Romeo was her ticket to it. During the story Romeo andJuliet convince them selves to be in love with each other and they becomeobsessed, not with the love for each other, but with the fact of being in lovewith each other.
Young people like to do forbidden things it gives them afeeling of exhilaration and freedom and thats exactly what Romeo and Julietwere doing. They did what they were not supposed to be doing without thinkingabout the consequences and simply hoping for the best. In the end their actsconcluded to their own deaths.Shakespeare
