The other main character of this play is of course Romeo from the Montague family. Eventhough Romeo is in love with Juliet, he makes a great mistake. Juliet´s cousin Tybalt insults him in the street when he finds out that Romeo and Juliet got married. Romeo´s beast friend Mercutio decides to fight Tybalt for Romeo´s honour. Unfortunately, Mercutio is killed by Tybalt and Romeo seeks revenge and kills Tybalt. Luckily, Juliet forgives him and their love story can go on...or at least for a couple more hours. Romeo is an idealistic lover considered in our time because of this character. At the end of the book (not telling you the ending yet), Romeo will prove that life without Juliet would be living hell for him. I personally think, that Romeo is much more childish that Juliet. He acts like a small boy eventhough he should already be a mature adult. The boundaries between him and Juliet are always set by her. He is not considered as a strong character in this tragedy.
