The law enforcement is the Prince and the prince's assistants in helping with the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues.

If you're in the US, the laws vary by state, so it would depend on which state it is. Also, be aware that not every state has a "Romeo and Juliet law"

The prince insists on banishing Romeo because the Prince is trying to get around Verona's law saying that murderers are to be killed, but Romeo is given the "gift" of keeping his life.

Tybalt is Juliet's cousin. When Romeo marries Juliet, Tybalt becomes Romeo's cousin in law, though he does not know this. Romeo also kills Tybalt.

Not all states have a Romeo and Juliet law and those who have are all different so no answer is possible unless you name the state this is about.

I believe they have in Florida, Texas, Kansas, and Michigan.

Nobody knows. It did not work in 2011 when they tried.

No. Age of consent is 17 with no close in age exemptions.

Oklahoma does not have a Romeo and Juliet law yet, however State Senator Paddack has introduced one for the 2009 session. It's senate bill 1021. Lori Fullbright, news on six crime reporter

Tybalt's life was already forfeit as he had been fighting in the streets. Romeo only carried out the sentence the law demanded. The Prince took this in mitigation of the sentence the law would otherwise impose on Romeo.

Yes but some people are gay/lesbian/bisexual/

Because the guy the surviving killer killed was a killer himself, and by law was to be put to death for it. The killer only completed what the law had prescribed. But because it was vigilante justice, he was banished.

Although Romeo's killing of Tybalt in a street brawl would normally make his life forfeit, the fact that Tybalt himself had forfeited his life by killing Mercutio in a street brawl, and that Romeo was therefore only carrying out the sentence of the law, was taken in mitigation of his sentence, which was reduced from the death penalty to banishment.

Florida, Texas, Kansas, and Indiana. Those are all I know of Michigan also has this law.

GYes it does apply but you have to be 4 years apart if you turn 1more year older they could press charges once your girlfriend turns more year older they fall back into the 4year law of romeo and juliet

They are very soon separated by the law, when Romeo is banished out of Verona. Ultimately they both end up dead.

Romeo has broken the law by fighting in the streets, and the penalty for that is death. However, the Prince commutes his sentence to banishment in view of the fact that Tybalt had himself incurred the death penalty before Romeo got involved.

All of the characters in Romeo and Juliet were Roman Catholics. That was and is the religion of the vast majority of Italians. It was not the official religion of England in Shakespeare's day, and Shakespeare was officially an Anglican, as everyone had to be by law.

An example of extended metaphors in Romeo and Juliet Act 4 are in Scene 5, lines 38-9 in which death is personified as a living, breathing person, and that death has married Juliet in place of Romeo. The lines are "Death is my son-in-law, Death is my heir, My daughter he hath wedded."

Romeo and Juliet, obviously, are the main characters.Other characters essential to the story are Friar Lawrence, Mercutio, Tybalt and Capulet. Not Benvolio, or even the Nurse.Here's the story as compact as you can get it: Romeo meets Juliet at a party. Tybalt objects to his presence but is prevented from doing anything at that time. Romeo and Juliet pledge their love to each other and Friar Lawrence marries them secretly. Later, Tybalt finds Romeo with Mercutio. Romeo is unwilling to fight Tybalt and Mercutio takes the mickey for him. Romeo is incensed and kills Tybalt. He then (or shortly thereafter) flees as he is wanted by the law. Capulet insists that Juliet should marry another man, and she seeks the friar's advice. She fakes her death, and Romeo returns to complete the suicide scene at the end.RomeoJulietMercutioBenvolioNurseFriar LawrenceTybaltMain Charcters; Romeo, Juliet, Lady Capulet, Capulet, Tybalt, Friar Lawrence.

Paris was supposed to marry Juliet. Then Capulet learns that romeo was married to Juliet and was Juliets one true love. But The Capulet's don't learn that romeo and Juliet were married until the two are found in the Capulet tomb dead.

Tybalt was breaking the law by fighting with Mercutio and should have been sentenced to death for doing so. Romeo was only carrying out the presumed sentence of the law by killing Tybalt which mitigated the sentence pronounced on Romeo.

Tybalt comes looking for a fight with Romeo, but Romeo won't fight him. Mercutio then gets into a fight with Tybalt, which Romeo and Benvolio try to prevent, and Mercutio is killed. Mercutio blames Romeo for his death, and Romeo as a consequence fights and kills Tybalt before realizing that he has broken the law. He runs off as the Prince arrives to conduct a trial. Romeo is found guilty of street fighting but his sentence is commuted from death to banishment.
