Let me tell you something about love, it is very difficult to maintain but it can be worth it. This is not the case for Romeo and Juliet. In the Shakespearian play you learn that life isn’t a box of chocolates but is in fact is more like a sack of rattle snakes. I think he is to blame for this tragedy, of course I mean the friar.
