* There was no need to fool around with poisons etc. just pop Juliet into a nunnery for safety and go straight to the Prince with the story of her marriage to Romeo then stand back and wait for the fireworks to stop.
Prince Escalus will ''love'' this solution to his civil violence problem and the Capulets and Montagues are down to one heir apiece meaning sooner or later they are going to have to stop screaming and accept the marriage. Everybody wins! Except Shakespeare of course.

** And Friar Laurence was probably planning to do just that before Act 3, Scene 1. Being banished for murder kind of puts a crimp in your wedding plans. (Also your in-laws now hate you and want deadly revenge, but hey, that's pretty much par for the course.)

** ''Lord Capulet'' was an idiot to try and rush the wedding the day after her cousin died by her secret husband.

** Honestly, all the criticism levelled at Romeo and Juliet (the characters) gets pretty disturbing. Yes, they're teenagers. Yes, they have poor impulse control and make spur-of-the-moment decisions. Because they're ''teenagers''. And they don't deserve to die or be thrown into the street for having a crush. There's a reason Shakespeare has all the surviving adults standing around in a circle at the end, with the Prince saying "All are punished", and a reason the Prince talks directly to old Capulet and old Montague back in the beginning: the ''adults'' are the ones who should know better. But everyone goes and blames the kids for the sin of making googly eyes at each other. It's depressing.

* You don't ''have'' to scream during sex, especially when you ''know'' you're doing it in a house other people are in. This Troper has...never mind.

*** It's a popular alternative character interpretation but not canon.

** Ah, yes, because allowing someone to attend your party without attacking them is obviously on the same level with "I would let you marry my daughter." Seriously, this reading that the old family is doing whatever they can to end the feud, I think it's projecting something onto the text that wasn't there.
