What would you like to do?
Because their servants and retainers are always fighting and innocents can be hurt. The Prince holds the heads of the families responsible for the actions of their servants and family members. Plus he has told them to stop like a billion times before.

Thanks for the feedback!
They and their followers were fighting in the streets.
If ever you disturb our streets again Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace basically, if the feud between the Montagues and Capulets disturbs the streets of Verona a…gain, the participants will be executed.
Because they keep on disturbing the peace of Verona (whenever the two households fight, the peace is disturbed)
He is angry with them at the beginning because they have broken the peace of Verona 3 times.
He gets angry and says that whoever starts another fight shall be executed.
there are none that we know of
The prince states that hes got MONTAGUE IN HIS BLOOD, so he's a Montague. Actually the prince does not say that he has "Montague in his blood" at all. He does say: "Capulet, M…ontague, see what a scourge is laid upon your hate, that heaven finds means to kill your joys with love. And I, for winking at your discords too, have lost a brace of kinsmen." Capulet and Montague have lost their "joys", their children. But the Prince has lost kinsmen over and above those, and just two of them (Mercutio and Paris). The Prince, Mercutio and Paris belong to a family that is neither Montague nor Capulet. That is why Mercutio says, "A plague on both your houses." He is cursing Montagues and Capulets, but not his own house, which is different.
They were angry with each other. They start riots with each other in the middle of the town, thus "disturbing the peace"
That if they break the law and his express commands to create no more troiuble on the streets of Verona, they will all have to bear the severest penalty for their disobedience….
They where fighting at the town square.
Because they are Italian
I think that in one point in the story, a fight between the two houses caused some innocent citizens to die, so the Prince finally said that next time there was a fight, the p…eople responsible would be put to death.
he says in the beginning of the play at the first fight if anyone shall fight again, the punishment shall be death.
Well, they are sad, of course, and all want to take some part of the blame for what happened. In their contrition, Capulet and Montague agree to erect statues to each others' …children.
prince calls forward the capulets and montagues to caution them that the next fight will lead to the deaths of both the houses of the capulets and montagues.
The Prince is holding them responsible if any breech of the peace.
He does not explain it very clearly, but only says "Capulet, Montague, see what a scourge is laid upon your hate, that heaven finds means to kill your joys with love." Basical…ly, it was the family feud between the Capulets and the Montagues that resulted in the deaths of the two lovers.
