William Shakespeare created a beautiful tale with both love and loss; it is called Romeo and Juliet. Romeo meets Juliet they fall in love and then kill themselves in a double suicide? This did not have to happen ,but did. Some blame Romeo and Juliet themselves and even the nurse, while they might have contributed into the death of the two star crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet were young; they didn 't know any better, and the nurse did not want Juliet to feel as though she betrayed her. The deaths of the two unaware young lovers were caused by Lord Capulet. Lord Capulet had to protect his young daughter but instead of protecting her he was more involved with her getting married. He did not realize she was in love with Romeo or even seeing him. Lord Capulet could have prevented these deaths by listening to Juliet 's wishes and not force her to marry Paris. He also should have never brought out so much rage and anger saying he would disown her and his fingers itched because he wanted to hit her. Some people say you should listen to your parents and not disrespect them, but Juliet was 13 years old and was not ready for marriage especially to someone she didn 't love or know. He should 've been a more thoughtful and patient father, so he could have saved Juliet 's. Instead of being patient and thoughtful he was the opposite, ergo Lord Capulet was at fault. Lord Capulet cared more about his daughter marrying Paris instead of her happiness or sadness for her cousin
