Romeo is caught in the situation of killing someone without thinking twice about it more than once. When Romeo kills Tybalt out of anger, he doesn’t think about the repercussions this will have on his relationship with Juliet.

Even if there wasn’t a family feud fate, which is what the whole story is based on, would’ve still played out and they would’ve died. Juliet is exceedingly impulsive.
Whether the Friar realizes it or not, he has just done something terrible that only strengthens the bond of these two lovers. This leads to several deaths along the way. This bond between Romeo and Juliet, fortified by Friar Lawrence and his hubris, causes a serious issue when Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, challenges Romeo to a duel. Romeo refuses to fight as they are now family by marriage and says, “… But love thee better than thou
Once Tybalt punctures Mercutio with his sword right under Romeo’s arm Mercutio expires and is no longer alive. Romeo is soon angered by the death of Mercutio because he does not want Mercutio to die alone, so he speaks this “Now, Tybalt takes the “villain” back again that late thou gavest me, for Mercutio’s soul but is a little way above our heads, staying for thine to keep him company. Either thou or I, or both, must go with him” (act 3, scene 1, lines 87-91). Romeo is saying the Tybalt should not be alive because he is the one the stabbed Mercutio during the fight so he should get it done back to him because you can’t do anything to others that you don’t want done to you. Romeo thinks Mercutio should not go to heaven, that Romeo should fight until one or the other is dead because it is not fair that he has to go by himself.

Tybalt says, “Thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here shalt with him hence”. This shows that Tybalt will not hold back, since he brought up Romeo’s recently deceased friend, Mercutio. He goes even further, by saying that Romeo can die here where Mercutio was killed.
Romeo’s tragic mistake begins with him arriving to the scene, finding his best friend Mercutio arguing with a Capulet, Tybalt. Romeo refuses to fight Tybalt due to the fact that they are now family since Romeo and Juliet got married not too long ago. Mercutio decides to defend his friend, so he and Tybalt begin fighting. Romeo tries to stop them by holding Mercutio back, but that’s when Tybalt stabs Mercutio from under Romeo’s arm. Mercutio dies with the words, “...Or I shall faint.
In times of tragedy, people look for answers and someone to blame. This is the case in William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet. The character, Friar Lawrence who was a trusted man of the cloth, allowed the two young protagonists Romeo and Juliet from opposing families to get married. Then later in the novel, he created a plan with the hope of the two lovers being together after they were separated by a tragic event, but ended with the two killing themselves.
