Love and hate are usually thought of as opposites, but in Romeo and Juliet, love and hate are two sides of the same coin, as two children from warring families (the Capulets and the Montagues) turn their hatred of each other into an insatiable passion. Their families’ conflict constantly threatens to turn Romeo and Juliet’s love into hate. Ultimately, the hatred between their two families propels the lovers towards their tragic deaths.

From Shmoop/Romeo and Juliet

I’m not sure I completely understand your question, but in Romeo and Juiet, if you know the play, what happened when Prince Escalus became angry with the Capulets and Montagues for once again disrupting the peace of Verona? What happened when Lord Capulet became angry with Juliet when she refused his marriage plans for her? Each time there were dire consequences. Look it up and you will see what I mean.

It relates to the feud between the Montague and Capulet families. Their anger tore their children apart, and was ultimately responsible for their deaths.
