Many times has this question been asked, but what is the answer? Through this play there are three turning points that made this play take a swivel for the worst. They could be well represented as strikes.

Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because he started the first fight, causing the two feuding families to get their first strike.
In the tragedy Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare there are two young lovers. They are Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. The Montagues and Capulets are two feuding families in Verona who have hated each other for centuries. However, Romeo and Juliet love each other which will produce problems. The two lovers die in the end because of Romeo's loss of self-control.
Romeo does nothing to fight back so Mercutio steps up and fight Tybalt but loses his life in doing so. After Mercutio dies Romeo is full of anger and craves vengeance, he immediately chases after Tybalt and kills him. Romeo starts off not wanting to fight but after the death of Mercutio he is conflicted with so many different emotions and he only listens to one, anger. Mercutio lost his life defending Romeo who refused to fight Tybalt, but his death made Romeo do the exact thing he lost his life for.
As we can see that in Act 3.1. Tybalt (Juliet’s cousin, part of the Capulet family) initially wants to fight Romeo due to his family and his personal pride. This results in Romeo's friend Mercutio (nephew of the prince of Verona) death as he stands up for Romeo and challenges Tybalt to a duel; in which Romeo tried to prevent. However, he ends up killing Tybalt as a sign of justice for what he had done. In the same scene, Benvolio tells the Prince the truth about
Romeo disagrees and says, “Tybalt, the reason why I have to love thee / doth excuse the appertaining rage” (III I 63-65). Here Romeo expresses his love for Tybalt due to the fact that Romeo is wed to Juliet, Tybalt’s cousin making him a relative of Tybalt. However, Romeo does not reveal why he loves Tybalt. Mercutio fights for Romeo and is slain by Tybalt and Romeo seeking revenge, murders Tybalt and is banished. Both these events cause other events of poor communication to take place in this chain reaction which leads to the dreadful end of Romeo and Juliet.
The scenes open up with Benvolio meeting Mercutio and Tybalt suddenly comes to have a brawl asking for Romeo , but Mercutio get caught up in the conflict and dies by a gun shot. Romeo comes in running to the body of Mercutio and fights Tybalt. Romeo dodges bullets and fires a shot which hits Tybalt in the head and dies. Romeo love for Juliet is too strong. The scene begins with an open argument and fighting.
This fight between Romeo, Mercutio and Tybalt ends in serious matters. Tybalt comes up to Romeo wanting to fight him, but Mercutio steps in and starts fighting Tybalt. Mercutio is struck by Tybalt and as a result of this, Romeo says to Benvolio when everyone has left, “This day’s black fate on more days doth depend; This but begins the woe, others must end” (3.1.124-125). Romeo is furious at Tybalt for what he did to Mercutio that and he wants revenge so he goes after Tybalt, fights him and kills him. The Prince banishes Romeo from Verona as a consequence for his actions.
For example, Tybalt and Mercutio draw their swords against each other in order to fight for their houses’ honor, and finally both are killed for this reason. Romeo on the other side at first avoids fighting due to his marriage with Juliet, but when he thinks himself as an offspring of Montagues murders Tybald to take revenge for Mercutio’s death. Consequently and according to Coppelia Kahn, “the play is constantly critical of the feud as the medium through which criteria of patriarchally oriented masculinity are voiced”. Moreover, the fact that Mercutio takes part in the feud although he is neither a Capulet nor a Montague reveals that “feuding has become the normal social pursuit for young men in Verona” (176). Lastly, the nature of the feud involves obscene sexual innuendo towards women, something that becomes evident when someone considers the puns the Capulet servants make with language referring to sexuality, such as their wordplay regarding Montague’s women virginity: “I will cut off their heads…
