Romeo and Juliet

"Romeo, o Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name."
Those are probably my favorite lines of literature because they portray a love like no other. Literally like no other. I've never heard of a couple lying about their marriage and then killing themselves because one died. Juliet faked her death and then Romeo thought she was actually dead and killed himself. Juliet woke up and saw him dead and decided to kill herself. Is that love or what. Or what. They were impulsive, irrational, and immature. The triple - i. Romeo loved with his eyes, not his heart, and Juliet was uncertain of his love for her. We all think it's a beautiful yet tragic love story that we all wish we had, kinda. But it's not. It shows major human flaws, leading to our downfalls. And no one mentions that fact that Juliet was only 13 when she married Romeo. It just shows how immature they were in thinking they could get married and hide it from their families who were at feud with each other. My poor modern-day Juliet is at home, heart broken over her Romeo. Their love wasn't one to be publicized even to the ones closet to them. And now look where they are. Not talking to each other; she's done with him. Love isn't an easy thing and with all these examples of it everywhere, we believe it's always easy and perfect. But sometimes we end up hurting the ones we love the most, like Romeo and Juliet did.
"For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo."
