Why doesn't Juliet want Romeo to swear by the moon that he loves her?
Swearing goes against her religious beliefs.
It is too common of an expression; she wants him to swear by something more unique.
The moon changes very often and she fears his love might change too.
The moon is not nearly as beautiful as the sun, which is what he should swear by.
She would rather he just say that he loves her; he doesn't need to swear to prove it.
