Translation:

Two lovers are born from the families. Their love is doomed by fate because of their birth to warring families.

Analysis:

"Star-crossed" is the phrase that implies fate. The stars, or fates, are against the lovers from the start, as if their astrology dooms them. We can assume that one child will be a boy, and one will be a girl, and that they will fall in love. We do know that Romeo is the boy born into the Montague family and Juliet is the girl born into the Capulet family. "Take their life" can be read two ways: to take life from (or be born), or to take life away from (or kill). In other words, the prologue gives you a hint about how this play will end, with the lovers taking their own lives. "Take their life" means, on the surface, that these two children gain life from their mothers. However, since we know that both Romeo and Juliet commit suicide, the phrase "take their life" has a double meaning that foreshadows later events.
