Ok-- You could also use some scenes between friar Lawrence and Romeo, and write about their differences. Make sure to include the scene where lord Capulet is angry at Juliet for defying him, that's pretty important.

In the first scene that we see Friar Lawrence in, he is trying to caution Romeo away from falling in love with Juliet so quickly. This shows the different attitudes towards love; the older generation (F. Lawrence) are more cynical than the younger ones (Romeo). "Young men's love then lies/Not truly in their hearts but in their eyes." says the Friar, clearly disapproving. However, by the end of the scene, FL agrees to marry Romeo and Juliet, so he's sort of been overtaken by Romeo's emotion and optimistic youth, which shows how powerful it is.
Lord Capulet is angry at Juliet because the Elizabethan expectation was that the youth obeyed their elders, blah blah blah, and she's not doing that, again showing the power of the youth in the play and the lack of understanding between generations.
(but if she'd listened to him, would she have died? worth thinking about...)
Please ask if something doesn't make sense :-)
