Over 5000 letters are mailed every year to Juliet from Romeo and Juliet.
The letters usually ask Juliet for relationship advice and are addressed to Juliet, Verona, Italy.
I don’t know why people want to get relationship advice from Juliet. Juliet killed herself a minute after finding out her husband was dead.
You should never take your own life, no matter what you are feeling. But at the minimum, Juliet should have waited until after Romeo’s funeral before she did it. That way she could show up at the funeral, give Lady Montague a hug, and speak at the eulogy.
Juliet also should have also put off her suicide until after she cleaned out Romeos apartment. Romeo probably had some embarrassing stuff in his room that he didn’t want anyone to find, like a crate of pornography. Lord and Lady Montague don’t want to find a crate of their son’s pornographic scrolls the same week that they lose him. Losing a son and finding his pornography stockpile in the same month is too much pain for any parent to go through. It is the spouse’s job to destroy their significant other’s embarrassing itmes if they pass away. One of the benefits of getting married is that you won’t die alone. The other benefit of being married is that if you do die, your spouse will clear out all of your embarrassing items: erotic toys, Grey’s Anatomy authored fan fiction, and home videos of you playing games with your cat.
