Did They Love Each Other Too Much?

Romeo and Juliet had way too much love. In the text it states "Shall i speak of ill of him that is my husband? Ah, poor my lord, , what tongue shall smooth thy name, When i, thy three-hours wife, have mangled it? But, wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin? That villain cousin would have kill'd my husband: back, foolish tears, back to your native spring; your tributary drops belong to woe, which you, mistaking, offer up to joy. my husband lives, that Tybalt would have slain; and tybalt's dead, that would have slain my husband: all this is comfort; wherefore weep i then? some word there was, worser than tybalt's death, that murder'd me: i would forget it fain; but, o, it presses to my memory, like damned guilty deeds t sinners' minds: 'tybalt is dead, and romeo--banished;'that 'banished,' that one word 'banished,'hath slain ten thousand tybalts. tybalt's death was woe enough, if it had ended there: or, if sour woe delights in fellowship and needly will be rank'd with other griefs, why follow'd not, when she said 'tybalt's dead,' thy father, or thy mother, nay, or both, which modern Lamentations might have moved? but with a rear-ward following tybalt's death, 'Romeo is banished,' to speak that word, is thy father, mother, tybalt, Romeo, Juliet, all slain, all dead. 'Romeo is banished!'

there is no end, no limit, measure, bound, in that word's death; no words can that woe sound."(Shakespeare)

toxic by mark ronson ft. tiggers

the song "toxic" by mark ronson ft the tiggers supports the thought that romeo and juliet's love was toxic
"With a taste of your lips
I'm on a ride
You're toxic
I'm slipping under
With a taste of poison paradise
I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic
And I love what you do
Don't you know that you're toxic"
Mark Ronson - Toxic featuring Tiggers

The analysis of romeo

Romeo does indeed experience a love of such purity and passion that he kills himself when he believes that the object of his love, Juliet, has died. Love compels him to sneak into the garden of his enemy’s daughter, risking death simply to catch a glimpse of her. Anger compels him to kill his wife’s cousin in a reckless duel to avenge the death of his friend. Despair compels him to suicide upon hearing of Juliet’s death. Such extreme behavior dominates Romeo’s character throughout the play and contributes to the ultimate tragedy that befalls the lovers. Had Romeo restrained himself from killing Tybalt, or waited even one day before killing himself after hearing the news of Juliet’s death, matters might have ended happily. Of course, though, had Romeo not had such depths of feeling, the love he shared with Juliet would never have existed in the first place.
