In my opinion I think that the feud between the two main families, the Capulets and the Montagues, is the most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death. The conflict between these two families is so distasteful that it causes Romeo and Juliet even more of a struggle as they try to find and keep their love. This conflict between the Capulets and the Montagues has been going on for a very long time and neither side is willing to make up for whatever may have happened in the past. Because of this a strong dislike is portrayed when someone sees a person from the opposite side.

Throughout the play Romeo and Juliet acted like unknowledgeable children. This ended up possibly causing Romeo and Juliet to make a lot of bad decisions. For one, Romeo went to the Capulet’s dinner party even though he knew that their family hated his. Even though he recognized the intense tension he ignored that fact and still went. Romeo also had a sudden impulse full of anger and killed Tybalt which led to him being banished from Verona. Romeo and Juliet also totally rushed their “love” and tried to force it. They immediately wanted to get married without thinking of how it would affect everyone around them. However these are true I do not think that Romeo and Juliet were the most responsible for their deaths.
