It may not be relevant in the sense that lifestyle has changed, but the themes are as relevant as ever. Yes, times have changed since way back when Romeo and Juliet was written. But thats not what this question really means. Sure, we don't have the same social systems, politics, and ways of life, but the underlying messages and morals are still more than relevant today. For example, forbidden love will ALWAYS be prevalent: years ago it was interracial couples, today arguably same sex couples, and most of all simply when two people fall in love when their parents disagree with the pairing. Issues like these fall back on Romeo and Juliet; two forbidden lovers who love each other more than others can hate their relationship, and it sends that message to everyone today.
