Death of Romeo & Juliet
The feud and the family are to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet.
My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth it is to me, That I must love a loathed enemy" (1.5.95-100)... "I tell thee what: get thee to church o'Thursday, or never after look me in the face: speak not, reply not..." (3.5.161-163)
Later after they were married, Capulet her father was trying to force her to marry Paris. Of course he didn't know that she was already married, but the fact that he tried to force her to do something that she didn't want to do in the first place in why she killed herself. I bet she felt like she was unwanted and a person who can be bossed around all the time. She didn't want to feel like that and feel like she can be told what to do and who to spend the rest of her life with. Even though that is what they did back in the day, she could have been one of the people that made you chose who you want to marry now a days.
The Notebook & How to Save a Life By: The Fray
How to Save a Life By: The Fray is a good song to compare to Romeo and Juliet because they talk about how someone they knew killed themselves and he didn't know how to save them at the time. When they figured how they could have saved them they started to think of all the things that they could have done to make the person feel better about lots of other things. In Romeo and Juliet they knew that no one would approve and kept a lot secret from everyone. Since they did that, the probably couldn't hold everything in and was tired of everything and ended up killing themselves.
