Romeo and Juliet, lovers by fate, change importantly due to love's grievousness; with their families at war both decided to keep their love secretly for the sake of rivalry, but however, their love for one another causes a tragic incident at the end of the book. The two “star-crossed” lovers change significantly throughout the book from young and slow to full common sense and maturity. Juliet, a bracing protagonist in Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, has an effective determination to be with the one she loves no matter the damage it would cause.
At the beginning of the story Juliet is this young and obedient girl. In the time period Romeo and Juliet takes place, young girls at her age get married.

Juliet's change in personality and attitude is connectable with people outside of the play. Juliet's love for Romeo is what causes her to change.

Shakespeare gave us an exclusive look of how love can change a person and drive them to a limit where they don’t care about anything but their love for that certain person. Juliet did whatever it took to be with Romeo and due to the feud between their families and the chaos around it, both of the “Star-crossed” lovers died. The two young lovers, did not die by fate or coincidentally, but by their own character and imperfections.
