  1. There are many versions of the Romeo and Juliet, including the popular "West Side Story." In many of these, two young people fall in love and want to marry even though their parents are strongly opposed.

    Reasons for parent and society disapproval could be ethnic, religious or class differences. It could be a gay or lesbian couple who want to dedicate their lives to each other. Or it could be a fundamental Christian wanting to marry a Muslim. The possibilities are almost endless.
