The first time Romeo and Juliet meet each other it was at the ball that Lord Capulet held, just after Romeo saw Juliet, Tybalt spotted Romeo and was about to sort him out after he informed Lord Capulet of Romeo but when he did Lord Capulet told him to leave him alone, this is a side of Lord Capulet that is very rare with a man of one household that is in a feud with another household and a member of that household is at his ball. When Romeo and Juliet first made eye contact, the expression ’love at first sight’ is used and almost immediately he wants to meet her, When they finally meet Romeo starts ’chatting up ’ Juliet they started to talk then they kissed. Then nurse told Juliet that her mother was calling her, then nurse started to talk to Romeo and that’s when he finds out that he just fell in love with a member of his family’s enemy.
In Shakespeare’s time it was very common for the parents who had a daughter to arrange there marriage, the ’theatre goers’ in that time would have agreed with Juliet’s parents on the arranged marriage. Even though some cultures still have arranged marriage, it is most certain that a twenty-first centaury parent would not agree with Juliet's parents and have full sympathy towards Juliet.
When the day came, Romeo and Juliet finally got married by Friar Laurence this was done in secret because Juliet had to marry Paris and because they were meant to be enemies. when the weeding was over Romeo went to the town centre where his friends were, then Tybalt turned up and wanted Romeo to exchange blows with there swards but Romeo would not because he just got married to Tybalt’s cousin Juliet but Mercutio challenged Tybalt instead of Romeo which ended up in the killing of Mercutio who was killed almost an accident. Then Romeo fought Tybalt to get back at him for what he did to his friend Mercutio, then Romeo ended up killing Tybalt which made the Prince mad because he said “if you disturb our streets again, your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.” But because Tybalt killed Mercutio Romeo was only banished from Verona for killing Tybalt.
Because Juliet’s parents wanted her to marry Paris, she on the other hand did not want to marry him, so with the help of Friar Laurence they made a plan to foil her parents by pretending to kill her self by taking a herbal drug that gave her the appearance of death in all ways for forty-eight hours. Before she took the drug she told her father that she would follow his wish for her to marry Paris, then she went to bed and took the herbal drug and in the morning Nurse went to wake Juliet up but instead found her dead, the day before Friar Laurence sent Romeo some information on the plan about Juliet’s fake death but when the messenger got there Romeo went straight pass him on horseback, when Romeo arrived in Verona city he went to the Capulet’s family vault where he saw Juliet, after every one had left Romeo picked up a rock and bashed the solid door down with it and then entered the dark and flesh decaying smelly vault and there he saw Juliet in a net, he removed it and kissed her on the forehead and cried then got out a little tube of poison and drank it, then Juliet woke up and smiled at Romeo not knowing that he was dead, then she realised and empty tube and thought she could get a few drops of poison but she couldn’t then she tried to suck some from Romeo’s lips but there was none there so she took Romeo ’s dagger and stabbed her self directly i the hart.
