Could the recent deaths of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet been avoided if they listened to their parents?
Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet have recently been found dead in the Capulet’s vault. It was not until later that Friar Lawrence revealed Romeo and Juliet’s secret marriage. The news spread quickly though the town. The Capulets and the Montagues were the most shocked at hearing this news. Romeo and Juliet defied the wishes of their families.
It is apparent in the upcoming generations that children are going against their parents’ wishes and choosing to do things the way they want.
Different parents have come up with many reasons but many mention the same reason: today’s youth fear telling their parents that the choices they have made that go against their parent’s wishes.
Romeo and Juliet feared what may have happened to them if they told their parents they were married. Also, they were scared because their families had been feuding for what seemed like forever.
Some parents believe that their children should be given the freedom to follow their own life choices. If the child makes a mistake, then the child will have to deal with the consequences. However, sometimes the consequences can create a bad name for a family.
Other parents believe they should govern every choice their child is given. But when the children rebel against this, the consequences can be fatal.
