Fate Overcomes All Fate, the belief that a person’s destiny is set in advance, is something that people believe is possible or believe it is not possible. Although some may not believe in it, they must admit that it dates to almost the beginning of time. Throughout the play, Romeo and Juliet, show how the power of fate can overcome all and the doubt of others, that are at odds with the belief in the power of fate. People have the power to change their fate by changes people make in their lives, although their destiny cannot undergo changes.
Verona, a city in which a pair of “star-crossed lovers” and all of its citizens overall, blame the “greater power,” fate, to veil their own actions. Fate and free will, both play a major part in Romeo and Juliet. However, only one of the two is actually true. On one side, fate supposedly controls the character’s destiny. But they are completely unaware that it is actually their free will and their own actions in which they are in control of. Though the characters in the play seem to believe and to be completely convinced that something greater, such as “fate,” is controlling them, they only choose to do so since they do not want to take responsibility for the actions they have done. Throughout the play, Shakespeare argues between fate and free will acting upon the characters.
In the play Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet are at the mercy of the stars. This is shown through the fact that the two lovers are impacted by many circumstances beyond their control, essentially caused by the family feud between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s. However, Romeo and Juliet do choose to control their own lives by the decision’s they constitute and compose without the influence from someone else in the play, such as getting married in secret and taking their own lives. Despite this small amount of control they are still bound by fate shown by the reasons behind the secret marriage, Tybalts’ death and the suicides.
Fate is a power that some people believe determines a person’s future. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, fate prevents Romeo’s and Juliet’s intense love. The play is about these two teenagers during the Renaissance who fall in love, but they are from different families, Capulet and Montague who are in a prolonged quarrel. Despite the obstacles, Romeo and Juliet wed and a sequence of events cause Romeo and Juliet both to die. There are multiple occasions where fate gets in the way of Romeo and Juliet such as when Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo being banished, Juliet being forced to marry Paris, the failure of Romeo being informed of Juliet’s fake death and Romeo killing himself.
Sometime you can’t control it when life goes wrong, because it just happen. William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is about a couple who are not meant to be together and end their life because they love each other so much. Many of their relatives die because two young people from different families fall in love. Some people didn’t realize how much the couple are in love because their families hate each other and die try to stop them. There are a lot of bad timing at the wrong place lead to terrible ending and many people who could be at fault. While many people are at fault, I think fate is responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.
Destiny or Decisions Everywhere, teenagers make impulsive decisions that either positively or negatively affect them. In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by playwright William Shakespeare, the main characters, Romeo and Juliet, are family foe’s that mistakenly fall in love. The unexpierienced, young couple tries to develop their secret relationship too fast, and the play ends after the lover’s traumatic suicides. In the play, the couple mentions how their relationship is “star-crossed” in that they are not fated to be together. However, these teenagers have been in many serious circumstances giving rise to their deaths and have overlooked the fact that their choices are what mainly determined their futures.
Most people don’t choose when and how they die. Although, they can make decisions that, whether directly or indirectly, change the way they die. Both destiny and one’s decisions, good and bad, can influence their demise. The same rules apply when talking about William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”; both fate and poor decisions led to the lovers’ deaths. They definitely had their fare share of fate and horrible choices, which played a major role in their ruination. Fate and poor decisions went hand-in-hand in the path of Romeo and Juliet’s demise.

William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a perfect example of how poor choices don’t only affect one’s own futures but also those of their communities. Romeo and Juliet fall in love despite their families, the Montagues and the Capulets, being enemies. The two marry in secret and plan to live a happy life together before a deadly fight breaks out between the Montagues and the Capulets and the lovers are separated. The heartbreaking story consists of risky decisions and bad timing. Romeo’s own impulsive nature, demonstrated when he kills Juliet’s kinsman, breaks Verona’s law of banishment, and suicidal act, all contribute to the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet.
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves”, is a quote by the man himself, William Shakespeare, concerning human responsibility, otherwise known as the capability of completing an obligation, or duty sufficiently.

Throughout everyone's life, decisions are made using free will. But in the end, fate is what determines the outcome of everything. In the book Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, there are decisions made by the characters using their free will, but no decisions could’ve stopped the tragedy of there love. All of the events leading up to Romeo and Juliet's death were not caused by free will, but they were caused by fate.
The theme of Fate vs. Free Will is dominant in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; however the theme of fate is more significant than free will. In the play both Romeo and Juliet meeting was contributed by fate as Shakespeare mentioned in the prologue that Romeo and Juliet were star-crossed lovers that were meant to meet, fall in love and their death would be the reason for the feud to end between the two families. Fate was the reason Capulet’s servant asked Romeo and Benvolio to help him read the invitation for him that contained all the names of the people that were invited to the ball Capulet hosted. “…If you be not of the house of Montagues, I pray come and crush a cup of wine.
In Romeo and Juliet, there are many people who are responsible for the fate of the two “star-crossed lovers”. Most of the blame has been faced towards the families forever lasting feud. However, some blame has also been give to Friar Lawrence and Lord and Lady Capulet.

The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare has toyed with the emotions of its audience members for centuries. The play’s main characters, Romeo and Juliet, love one another in spite of the feud between their families and later on, in the wallows of grief, each take their own life. While the characters both meet their end tragically, it was their choices that realistically led them down that path. The cause of the two “star-crossed lovers” final end is not due to fate or destiny, but by their own foolish hands.
William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is filled with numerous irresponsible choices that determine the outcome of the play. Some choices barely affect the outcome of the play, while others are for what the play is known. Of these many pivotal choices, many are made by Romeo. Romeo’s personality and belief in fate are the main reasons for the careless decisions.
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? Because people are able to argue both sides of the case, there has never been a definite answer on whether or not fate, or poor choices takes place in this Shakespearean play. Although fate is something that definitely is shown in this play, poor choices ultimately cause the death of Romeo and Juliet. Every action that someone makes affects someone else, like dominoes that continue to fall until eventually, everyone has fallen. Whether or not they be intentional or accidental, every action has an equal opposite reaction.
