Nothing in love goes smoothly all the time, there are always hiccups along the way. This is the key factor that makes these stories and other great love stories, so popular and unforgettable.
Themes of Love and Hate in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet, one of the most famous plays of all time, is so because of the combination of doomed love and troubled hate that plights the destiny of the two "star-crosse'd lovers". Before Act 1 Scene 5, love has already been displayed in many forms. Romeo shows an almost courtly love for Rosaline where he is to pursue her until he can win her. In contrast to this the nurse and the servants give a much more informal, bawdy presentation of love, perhaps this is because it is the only type of love they have the experienced. However, more likely it is used to emphasise the class differences that existed at the time.
The absence of love from her husband, her father, and her lost brother, constructs an obsession over romance and relationships between men and women. Her husband never shows that he truly loves her making her turn toward the world of fantasy and romance to fill that void.

If thou lovest me, then, Steal forth thy father's house tomorrow night" act 1 scene 1 161-164. It shows that during those harsh times their love was strong enough to even risk the anger of their parents. In my opinion unrequited love is the most painful type of love there is in this play. The main example of this is the sad situation of Helena and Demetrius during the early stages of the play. Helena is madly in love with Demetrius and would give her life for just one kind word from him.
The story of Romeo and Juliet is one that almost everyone is familiar with. Not even having read the book yet, you know immediately that it will end in tragedy.

The main theme of the two poems is love. However, their prospective on the topic differs just slightly. In “Love is Not All” by Edna St. Vincent Millay tells how love will not cure a sickness or injury, but in some way it is still a necessity in life. Whereas in “Since feeling is First” by E. E.

The main theme in the two poems is how love is not explainable, but is needed for a well-balanced life.
Of course, all love stories don’t end as happily as Sleepless in Seattle. William Shakespeare’s tragic love story Romeo and Juliet was updated and made into a movie staring Leonardo DiCaprio and Clair Danes.

But sometimes, ‘love’ is enough even without the overwhelmed feeling of being ‘in love’ with your other half. I believe that we don’t need to be ‘in love’, that simply being able to say we ‘love’ the person is enough to build and maintain happy and long-lasting relationship. Have you heard of people saying about marrying your best friend? Obviously, you can’t be in love with your best friend. It feels like being in love with the smelly pillow you sleep on every night.
