There are several main ideas in R&J. One of them, is the attitude of parents towards their children. Another is peer pressure. Yet another is the inability to think positively. There is also the insolence of disobeying the law. Shakespeare interweaves these salient points into the story, making each particular point a telling factor. All is resolved in the end by the final edification of Princ Escalus, "For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet, and her Romeo".
