3. Romeo and Juliet

The Skinny: This version of the Shakespeare classic is a doozy.

When Romeo and Juliet meet, they instantly fall in love and will do anything to be together, even though their families are sworn enemies.

The Kicker: "O, swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon, who monthly changes in her circled orb, lest that thy love prove likewise variable."

The Takeaway: Destiny can be a cold-hearted piece of work, can't it?

Were these two star-crossed lovers meant to be no matter how tragic?

Or was it the opposite in that they fought fate and forced something that wasn't meant to be, thus dying tragically?

We've been asking ourselves that one since the seventh grade, and sorry, reader, but we still aren't quite sure.
