How have labels affected Romeo and Juliet? How do Romeo and Juliet react to these labels?

Nick Blake | 10 comments Labels should have affected Romeo and Juliet so far, but they haven't so much. The main label is that of Capulet and Montague, and what comes with that is the inference that they are supposed to hate each other and not be in love. They react to these labels by wishing they weren't so, but all in all accepting them and still loving each other.

Russell Schmidt | 11 comments Labels have greatly affected the story because of the label that the montagues and capulets are supposed to hate each other. If this label didn't exist everyone would accept Romeo and Juliet's love. Now they have to choose between their families and their love.

Victoria | 10 comments I think that labels affected Romeo and Juliets families but not so much themseles because they're history is suposed to make them not like each othr and hate each other but they don't they are the opposite and if labels did affect them then they wouldn't be in love still. But they are so thnik that labels dont affect them but only their backround and family.

Sam | 12 comments Labels effect Romeo and Juliet greatly for the duration of the play. Romeo being a Montegue and Juliet being a Capulet means they wouldn't be able to see each other on a regular basis without causing serious consequenses. They will never have an approved marrige or normal life togethr all because of their labels.
