Shakespeare used these characters to effectively emphasize the understanding of how important it is to act with caution and reasoning. The characters in the story often had not accurately analyzed decisions and issues that needed to be resolved, and would often make weak choices, ending in them meeting their fate, or greatly impacted the lives of their surrounding companions or family. Is it problematic to make resolutions without legitimate understanding of the hypothetical outcomes? Based on the words of William Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet, he proves this point adequately.
In “Romeo and Juliet”, both of the children are, to an extent, responsible for their own downfall. Romeo, the handsome, intelligent and sensitive young boy, makes very careless and quick decisions before thinking them through. For example, in the beginning of the play, Romeo, without considering the consequences and knowing that Tybalt would be there, uninvitedly attended the party at the house of Capulet's. This was a silly thing for Romeo to do. The Capulet's already don’t get along, yet Romeo didn’t think before he attended.
The concept of Pardon and Punishment explores responsibility for our actions, and if they have positive or negative impacts.

The play focuses on two central characters named Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, set in they city of Verona during the Renaissance. The two figures both come from families that have been feuding with each other for years.

Fate was definitely the reason for Romeo and Juliet’s tragic deaths because of the unexplainable coincidences, uncharacterized choices, and conscious decisions that all lead to the same inescapable outcome.
