Two Michigan teenagers who went on the run after parents tried to split up their budding romance have been ordered to wear devices that will monitor their every movement, CBS Detroit reports.

Jayden Thomas, 13, and Braxton Wood, 14, were reportedly set to start freshman year at different high schools when they hit the road after the girl’s mother told her daughter the six-month relationship was becoming much too serious. The two, dubbed “Romeo and Juliet” in media reports, were located after the Ford Explorer they lifted from Jayden’s mother was found broken down near Chicago.

Two weeks after first leaving home, Jayden and Braxton have been ordered by a Michigan judge to refrain from contact with one another and to wear GPS tracking devices. With those conditions met they will be allowed to return to school.

This is pretty wrong. If they love each other enough to runaway together then they are definitely true lovers. Why are they being kept apart? They should be allowed to be together.

how are they like romeo and juliet? Only Romeo left town and that was because he killed someone and was forced to.

@SarahConfran And were they from rival powerful feuding families? Plus there's not a single mention of poison in this news story.  No no no this article makes no sense at all!
