Both romeo and juliet believed that they could not live without one another so when romeo mistakenly thought juliet died, he killed himself which led to the death of juliet. Throughout the story, the recurring problem of the rising tensions between the two families always makes things harder and harder for romeo and juliet. Both romeo and juliet hate being montagues and capulets, and it is very clear and easy to see this because it is shown during the story when Juliet says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.’’
He also leaves Juliet alone in the tomb after she awakens to find her beloved Romeo dead. Friar Lawrence is a moral man, but his hubris leads to the death of Romeo and Juliet.

Themes of Romeo and Juliet~ The Force of Fate The two star crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, had a fate that they could not escape. The play Romeo and Juliet was written by William Shakespeare.
/ Ah, word ill urged to one that is so ill! / In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman. ”(1.1.197-199) Romeo only marries Juliet to ease the pain of heartbreak from Rosaline. Juliet isn’t in love with Romeo either.
Here Juliet means that when she learned Romeos name it was too late, she has fallen under a spell of love. There are a few negative thoughts about Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden relationship. Friar Lawrence even warns Romeo to be careful about the marriage of him and Juliet “These violent delights have violent ends” (Shakespeare 856). Friar means that this is a marriage between these two families filled with hatred along with this history between them, the happy couple won’t last for long, and surely this will end badly. Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865).
They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival.
Many of whom had nothing to do with the feud, but ended up in those situations because of the hate their parents instilled into their minds at such an early age. Of the many deaths in the play Mercutio’s was one of the most significant. His death occurred because he insisted on challenging Tybalt, who was looking for Romeo.
He chooses to marry Juliet only hours after he first lay eyes on her, and this rush into marriage is a reason Romeo and Juliet die at the end of the play. If they were not married, they would not have been so attached, and may not have killed themselves when they saw that the other was dead. In addition, Prince Escalus informs the feuding Capulets and Montagues that they will be punished for fighting each other, but Romeo ends up ignoring this rule and fights Tybalt. When Romeo interferes with Tybalt and Mercutio’s fight, getting Mercutio killed, he is filled with rage at Tybalt. Despite knowing that he will be punished for fighting and harming Tybalt, when Tybalt tells Romeo he is going to die, Romeo responds saying, “This shall determine that.”
While Mercutio is dying Romeo is deciding what he wants to do to Tybalt for killing his friend. After Mercutio dies Romeo realizes that Tybalt must pay for what he has done, Romeo kills Tybalt in a duel. This killing spree upsets the families. Romeo did not want his friend to die on the count of his family’s feud with the Capulets. Mercutio knew that the two families did not get along and tried to stay neutral with the conflict, but because he let his feelings about Tybalt get in the way, he unfortunately paid for it with his
In a romantic comedy, two people will fall in love at first sight, with everything working out at the end. However, this is not possible in a tragedy. The tragedy Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare tells the tale of a couple’s forbidden love and how it leads to many consequences, which are caused by impulsive decisions. One consequence is the couple having to hide their love from their families and friends. Another is the deaths of Mercutio and Tybalt.
Benvolio says this to Romeo, because Tybalt has just been killed because he killed Mercutio. “Romeo, away, be gone! / The citizens are up and Tybalt slain. ”(3.1.130-131) This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents don’t know that they are married.
Romeo came shortly after and Tybalt challenged him, “Romeo, the love i bear thee can afford no better term than this; thou art a villian .” Romeo refused to fight, seeing how he just married his cousin juliet and was now family. He tried to keep the peace but Tybalt came looking for a fight and wasn’t leaving without one. Once Mercutio realized Romeo wasn’t going to fight he jumped in. Tybalt had killed Mercutio while Romeo was trying to break it up.
Romeo 's personality of peace, loving, yet vengeful caused his own doom once he was exiled for killing Tybalt who killed Mercutio. Thus 'evidently causing pain for Juliet who lost both her lover and cousin. Juliet 's father arranging Juliet 's marriage to Paris made her mourning worse, already being married to Romeo yet being separated made her to reason with Friar Laurence. The plan that was supposed to reunite both Lovers indefinetly brought upon their own doom. Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her.
Juliet only briefly thinks of the difficulty of the two families coming together, but is then drawn back to Romeo’s convincing suggestion. This situation is one of the fatal mistakes that leads to the death of Romeo, Juliet, and many others. In another instance, Tybalt engaged in a fight with Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend, resulting in Mercutio’s death. Mercutio stepped in to take Romeo’s place unaware of the fact that Romeo was now part of the Capulet family and therefore unwilling to fight Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin. When Mercutio died, instead of thinking about what the consequences might be, Romeo slayed Tybalt instantly.
He wanted to reassure Juliet that she would once again see Romeo but, this plan was made on the spot with evaluation in it. Once the plan of meeting up with Romeo does not go according and Romeo is dead, Friar Laurence has no backup plan with Juliet. .”Thy husband in thy bosom there lies dead; And Paris too. Come, I’ll dispose of thee Among a sisterhood of holy nuns”(V.iii.168-170). It is realized all the planning that Friar Laurence put into this plan he knows because now Romeo is dead and he wants to leave Juliet in monastery they are too deep into the plan to get out.
