In Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence tells the couple to “love moderately”. I think that this means that you can’t expect marriage to be rainbows and cupcakes and act like everything is your happily ever after. It’s not. There are going to be fights, arguments, money trouble and other more. Friar Lawrence is telling them that you can’t melt down when there are troubles and you can’t expect everything to be perfect. Take the middle road and work through things and maintaining steady emotions through the hard times. You have to be there for your partner and make sure that you work through things and not melt down. Being married is hard, but “love moderately”.
