'Love conquers all'
Romeo and Juliet's love doesn't just affect them, it effects just about everyone is Verona. From Capulet and Montague, to Friar Lawrence and Paris, to Mercutio and Tybalt. This tragic love story portrays the chaos and passion of being in love, combining ideas of love, violence, death, religion, and family in an allusive rush leading to the play’s devistating conclusion.
Juliet is young and naive. Her transformation from girl to woman is seen in the changing language she uses to talk about love. Although Juliet is set to marry Paris, her forbidden love with Romeo over powers her, refusing her family name and what her supposed values. Juliet takes her own life so she can be with Romeo in the afterlife.
Romeo is merely in love with the idea of being in love. His 'affair' with Juliet is considered immoral and wrong. Romeo's infatuation with love divides him from his family, as well as drives him to take his life.
Romeo's closest friend, Mercutio is a victim of the cruel existence that is Romeo and Juliet's love. It is the Montague's and Capulet's hate as well as Romeo and Juliet's love that is the death of Mercutio. Tybalt kills him as an act of vengeance against Romeo when he bids peace between the two families to save his relationship with Juliet.

Love in the time of Shakespeare...
The theme of love reflects issues faced in Shakespearean times like gender roles and equality and that women had no rights. Women didn’t get to marry people that they loved, they married because of their parents or for money. They may fall in love after they were married. This issue is portrayed in Romeo and Juliet when Juliet has no control of her marriage. In Shakespearean times the parents often decided who the child would marry for whatever reason, an they wouldn't listen to their child's wishes. Romeo and Juliet rebel against this portrayed standard, contrary to life in Shakespearean times.
