In spite of the feud going on between these two prominent families, Romeo Montaguefalls in love with Juliet Capulet at a masquerade. The two feuding families are the Capulets and the Montagues. They are both very affluent and wealthy in the city, and both are equally trying to put the other in its place.

Likewise, why were Romeo and Juliet not allowed to be together? Romeo and Juliet are actually not in love. One reason Romeo and Juliet aren't in love, is because they're both searching escapism.
