The action that starts the story is halted when, after the feuding families have engaged in “Three civil brawls”(), the Prince threatens Capulet and Montague: “If ever you disturb our streets again,/Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace” (-99); As a warning to the community against further battles, Prince Escalus banishes Romeo. The objective story is impeded—Friar Lawrence counsels Romeo to wait patiently “. . till we can find a time/To blaze your marriage, reconcile your friends,/Beg pardon of the Prince, and call thee back” (-52).
