Romeo and Juliet both come from privileged families. They have money and hence have the ability to muse about courtly love, romance. Most Elizabethans were busy trying to get enough to eat and live past 30 years old. The only way Romeo was able to get his poison was by paying off the poverty stricken apothecary.
