Romeo and Juliet

Friar Lawrence: These violent delights have violent ends.  (II.vi.9)

The houses of Montague and Capulet are sworn enemies. When Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet, fall in love they do not know whom each other is. They marry in secret, while the feud rages. When Romeo’s friend Mercutio is killed by Juliet’s cousin, Tybalt, Romeo in turn kills Tybalt. He is banished from Verona, while Juliet’s family plan to marry her to someone else. Friar Lawrence hatches a plan to reunite the lovers, but messages are crossed and they are driven to their deaths instead.
