William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet In the love story about Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is an important character as all the events are based on his actions. Romeo the son of Montague falls in love with Juliet the daughter of lord and lady Capulet, this creates a grave problem as the Capulet's and Montague's have had a feud this has been festered for a long time.

Though this might be true benvolio thinks Romeo will find another woman. Benvolio persuades Romeo to go to the party which the Capulet has organised, Benvolio tells him that Rosaline will be there due to this Romeo agreed to go to the party. Before the party Benvolio says to Romeo "I will make thee think thy swan a crow" This shows that benvolio is certain that if Romeo looks at other women he will definitely forget about Rosaline and will surely fall in love with someone else.
