Sometimes the best love stories end in tragedy. In the play “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare, the main characters who are married both die horribly. The character who is most to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death is Friar Lawrence because of his selfishness and sloppy plan executions.

Friar Lawrence does not take into account how this will affect Romeo and Juliet. He even predicts that “These violent delights have violent ends,” meaning that he thinks that their love will end badly because it began so

Many characters could be accountable for the death of Romeo and Juliet. It might be the Nurse, who had very poor judgement, stringing Juliet along in a relationship that wouldn’t last. Would it be Tybalt, the violent cousin, who resented Romeo? Unexpectedly, the person who is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet is the carefree Romeo.
