Maybe Romeo and Juliet were fated to be together, but just for a while, and then their time passed. If they could have known that beforehand, maybe it all would have been okay.
Even now, I believe that for the most part, love is about choices. It’s about putting down the poison and the dagger and making your own happy ending…most of the time. And that sometimes, despite all your best choices and all your best intentions…fate wins anyway.
