The story of “Romeo and Juliet” has been extolled as a perfect, timeless,
romance. However, underneath its shakespearian glamor, it is a story of two, very
young children, who were both neglected by their families, until they both ended up

At first glance, the love-at-first-sight cliche seems sweet and adorable, until you
realize Juliet is only thirteen, and Romeo is not much older. Capulet states whilst
