I found this book amazingly stupid, but at the same time, beautiful. 

First of all, Romeo falls in love with pretty much every girl, not just
He forgot about Rosaline just as soon as he saw Juliet.  Who's to say he wouldn't
have forgotten Juliet as soon as the next girl came along?

Second of all, Juliet is thirteen, and Romeo isn't much older, and they get
And they don't tell their parents.
So Juliet's parents think she is not married and try to get her married to Paris. 
But she's already fucking married.  Real smart there, Juliet.

And then, when Romeo gets banished, he says, "The is no world without Verona
Which is basically saying, he is so stupid and narrow minded that he can't move out
of Verona,
even though it would save his life and Juliet's.

He's all, "I can't move out of Verona, because I can't leave Juliet."

But despite the shear stupidity of the characters and their decisions, 
it was beautiful and poetic, and I admit, I loved it.

Haha.  Conflicting emotions.

Just watched a play of Romeo and Juliet, and I pretty much agree with

Because apparently, they are stupid kids, and can't use their brains,
only their hormonally charged hearts.

just saying people during shakespearean times only lived to
about 35 so getting married at 13 then is equivalent to getting
married at 25-30 now.

Erm. Actually Romeo was like 20. So he's A LOT older than she was.
But that wasn't actually that uncommon for their times.

Anyways, it kind of does have a wierd plot. And in a strange way, it
is beautiful. Maybe not relatable to today in a lot of ways... but
still kind of beautiful.

i just read romeo and juliet in school, juliet was 15 and romeo was
like 16 or 17. it was common to be married at that time, becaused you
died after like +25 years. its a beautiful story, i absolutely fell in
love with it. he said he couldnt live without Juliet, i know you said
he could just take her with him but he didnt want anything to harm her
because he knew itd be trouble. the family issue plays alot into the
hatred and why juliet was set up with Paris. times have definately
changed though.

I know it wasn't unusual.  
I just don't think thirteen year-olds are emotionally ready for
And how do you know he was twenty? According to the book he was
[about] 16.
No it says she wasn't fourteen yet.  And I know marriage was different
back then.
