Romeo was furious that Tybalt had killed one of his best friends, so he decided to jump in. However, The Montagues and Capulets aren't supposed to brawl in the public, so Romeo got banished from Verona because of his behavior.

Juliet is clearly running into love too fast and needs some self-control versus
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?
