in my opinion the moral of the story is not to marry some one just to have sex with them

Killing yourself in a fit of passion is a bad idea.

Ok, seriously? You can get into the whole love v. lust thing, as ru36 suggests, but I that's irrelevant to the more central moral issues of the play--the family feud. A moral: initiating or reawakening family feuds that no one is even quite sure the root of can only have unhappy consequences for everyone involved.
Though if you were to find one running problem throughout the play, I'd say communication skills. No one communicates well, not the families, not the children and parents, not the different friars, and that lack of communication invariably leads to disaster. Maybe there's a moral there.

Or maybe it's like my MS English teacher said: always do what your parents tell you, or you'll die a horrible death! ;)
