The young teens focus on romantic love, specifically the intense passion that springs up at first sight between them. Love in Romeo and Juliet is a brutal, powerful emotion that captures individuals and catapults them against their world, and, at times, against themselves. Relationships are also a major focal point of the play, as they are two star struck teenagers with an addiction to each other to the point of Juliet faking a death just to be with Romeo forever. The play, rather than presenting a specific statement of love, portrays the chaos and passion of being in love, combining the themes of love, passion, family, and violence, and how they conflict with each other.

Although both sides of this controversy have merit, I believe that the title characters in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet are truly in love because they would die for each other, they went behind their parents’ backs and risked getting caught and they got married so they were committed to each other. The first reason why I think Romeo and Juliet are truly in love is because they would die for each other and in this case they actually did. “ Here’s to my love! Drinks. O true apothecary!
Even though Romeo and the nurse didn’t get off on a good start, she told Romeo that she will still deliver the message he sent to Juliet. “Good heart, and i’faith I will tell her as much. Lord, Lord, she will be a joyful woman.” (II.iv.156) The nurse had a change of heart since the start of her conversation with Romeo. All she cares about is Juliet and her happiness, so she’s willing to do what it takes to keep Juliet happy; even if it means caringly telling Romeo that she will deliver the message to Juliet, after he was so rude to her. When Romeo finds out the news that he is banished, he reacts immaturely.
Shakespeare presents the concept that deceptive decisions lead to tragic events. Romeo’s rapidly changing character makes irrational and unwise decisions which link up to a strong and prominent theme in the play; deception.

Despite of his blundering, Juliet see’s this only as dreadful because of his “banished”.

Love that is powerful and drawing between Romeo and Juliet is as potent and destructive in its effect on relationships between families and friends.

In Romeo and Juliet, an excess of passion is frowned upon. Romeo had obsessed over other women before, including Rosaline, however for Juliet this was her first love.

By using aggressive verbs and strong beat, it shows the conflict between the two families, which is very important for people to know so that they can have better ideas of why Romeo and Juliet’s love is a forbidden love.
