“The blame Game” If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty. Friar laurence was responsible for marrying Romeo and Juliet. The nurse and them three was the only one’s that knew about it.

Verona, a city in which a pair of “star-crossed lovers” and all of its citizens overall, blame the “greater power,” fate, to veil their own actions. Fate and free will, both play a major part in Romeo and Juliet. However, only one of the two is actually true. On one side, fate supposedly controls the character’s destiny.

Romeo and Juliet is a love story written by William Shakespeare with a tragic ending. It is about a boy and a girl that are star crossed lovers. They are separated by two families that do not get along. Unfortunately at the end of the story both Romeo and Juliet commit suicide because their love is forbidden because of the feud. Many believe it is Romeo and Juliet’s fault for their own deaths, but there is more evidence that supports that the feud is the blame. The feud is to blame for the tragedy because it forced them to keep secrets, it caused them to come up with dangerous plans to avoid getting caught, and it set the storyline by causing lots of deaths.
After Mercutio dies in Romeo’s arm, Romeo confronts Tybalt, seeking revenge for the death of his friend. Ultimately, he kills Tybalt before realizing his actions.

In the play both Romeo and Juliet meeting was contributed by fate as Shakespeare mentioned in the prologue that Romeo and Juliet were star-crossed lovers that were meant to meet, fall in love and their death would be the reason for the feud to end between the two families. Fate was the reason Capulet’s servant asked Romeo and Benvolio to help him read the invitation for him that contained all the names of the people that were invited to the ball Capulet hosted. “…If you be not of the house of Montagues, I pray come and crush a cup of wine.
Romeo’s decision making skills amongst other flaws like impulsiveness and rashness, led him down a path that ended in his death. Juliet’s blind devotion to Romeo and haste in decision making left her feeling helpless and alone upon the realization that death was her only remaining viable option. The many minor characters in the play all helped push Romeo and Juliet’s already harmful decisions towards a place where they both ended up dead. Throughout the course of the play, it becomes very apparent that it’s not fate that causes the problems for Romeo and Juliet, but the disastrous decisions of everyone in the play combined, that create the plethora of problems that our two main characters have to deal

In a play like Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare which is a classic, dating back to the 16th century, it can be expected that discussions have happened based on the question: Did Romeo and Juliet cause their ultimate demise based on choices they made, or does fate take control of their life the second they meet?
