Transcript of Romeo & Juliet: Why is it still relevant in a modern society

Why is it still relevant in a modern society? What is Romeo and Juliet about? Why is 'Romeo and Juliet' still relevant in a modern society? Conclusion Romeo & Juliet Well,a boy, Romeo, a girl, Juliet are from two different families that are in a feud.
Romeo and Juliet fall in love and they don't care if they are enemies.
Romeo accidentally killed Juliet's cousin, who killed HIS best friend Mercutio, so Romeo left.
Juliet wants Romeo to come back, so she takes something that makes her not breathe for two days.
Romeo went to see her, he thought Juliet was dead, so, he kills himself with poison. Juliet woke up and saw him dead so she stabbed herself. What are the key messages of Romeo and Juliet? There are two key factors in Romeo & Juliet:
Love is blind
Vengeance never ends well
In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare teaches that families can divide a relationship. It took both families the deaths of their own children to realize the family feud had to be ended immediately. A good expression to use about love would be "love kills" in this case, literally. When they made the wedding vowels, they hadn't lied about "till death do us part." Romeo and Juliet's story is still relevant today, as people in society and religion have similar experiences with what they went through.
For example:
Gang warfare (Capulet vs Montague)
Strength of love (Romeo & Juliet)
Strength of friendship (Romeo & Mercutio)
But there are also common events that happen in religion that are also similar to Romeo and Juliet.
Arranged marriages in Muslim culture.
Forced marriage by parents.
Marriage because of money. Romeo and Juliet consist of a mixture of different emotions, feelings, scenes and significant factors.
However, throughout the play, one message is continuously 'played back' to the audience: Love conquers all, even death.
