Szalay 1Megan SzalayMs. Hayreh26 October 2015Romeo and Juliet Were TeenagersTeenagers. They are known for making rash decisions that sometimes result in harsh consequences. Romeo and Juliet act a lot like teenagers. Their rash decisions resulted in them paying the highest price… their lives. I want to compare the star-crossed lovers to the average modern-day teen.First, consider how they met: they found love without knowing who the other was. I’d like to compare that’s the way some modern teens meet. The Internet provides anonymity and plenty of “parties,” chat rooms, online dating, or social media. Did Romeo know who Juliet was, or even know her name? No. And neither do some teenagers who meet people online.Second, I’d like to point out their rash decisions. Apart from dating or marrying someone you don’t know, Romeo, Juliet, and teenagers make lots of decisions they haven’t thought through. Juliet took the potion from Friar Lawrence before thinking it through. Romeo jumped to the conclusion Juliet was dead, when he could see a few signs that she was still alive.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
