Romeo and Juliet

Relationships can be difficult when you are young. There are many influences on the relationships including family, friends and other relationships. In the Shakespeare play Romeo And Juliet, the main characters, fall in love but they have many problems. The three major conflicts that lead to deaths of Romeo and Juliet are the two families that don’t get along, Romeo runs away after he kills Juliet’s cousin Tybalt and the last major conflict is Juliet having to marry another man while she is married to Romeo. Those three conflicts lead to the death.

Romeo’s action makes the situation worse. “Be gone before the watch be set or by the break of day disguis’d from hence Soujournin Montuna”, say’s the Friar to Romeo. The Friar is helping Romeo to escape so he will not be killed and so he and Juliet can be together.

Lastly the conflict that leads s to the death is the complication of Juliet’s father planning her marriage to the Paris when she is already married to Romeo. Juliet’s parents don’t know she is already married to Romeo, so her father say’s “Thursday, tell her, she shall be married to this noble earl”. Juliet cannot obey her father’s demands, but she had no choice but to marry Paris. To stop the wedding, Juliet drinks a potion that makes it look like she is dead. She can’t marry anyone...
