    The characters of Romeo and Juliet are supposed to be 16-18, in age range. Look at some of the couples in your high schools TODAY (or hell, I saw one today on THIS frickin' message board) that THINK they love each other and will always be together, always in love.

    No, this play makes perfect sense.

    Also, part of what drew them together was the fact is that they were forbidden to be together because of their feuding families. Being rebellious kids, they were naturally attracted to each other.

    This was NOT two mature and wise adults. The story is actually more of a tale of yearning and adoration than love.

    Man, you have a thing against young ppl. I say this could happen with older young ppl in love too. Romeo and juliet could have been 21-25 and the story would have still worked. Adults can be blinded by love too. Hence crimes of passion.

    You have a good point, but I still think it was rushed. If they had lived, they may have grown to hate each other. Then were would they be? It wasn't 16-18. Juliet was 13 and Romeo was possibily 17-19. It never said how old Romeo was.

    I think it was rushed. He could have had them meet and then say like THREE MONTHES LATER....... and then they die. I love the story though. It was writen well and has a great plot. (if you can understand it) I luv depressing movies though! I luv a good, point-less cry.

    heh, maybe it seems rushed because William Shakespeare had to keep it short
    don't want it to be too long or else his audience would get too bored for it being too dragged out
    it has a tragic ending..

    so my memory is a bit fuzzy
    my head is filled with random facts about video games, anime, and music
    woo...
    thank the gods for people like you
    ahahaha. Your welcome Innerhell. Like I said, I happen to love everything about Romeo and Juliet (I actually quoted that passage from memory.) See, the way taht some of you people are about anime and manga is the way I am about plays ad movies that I really like.

    THANK YOU SASURAIHELL!!! YOU ROCK!!!!
