William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is a classic love story that ends in a tragedy. Unable to overcome the hatred that plagues both of their families, Romeo and Juliet ultimately commit suicide. This tragedy is often viewed as a product of Verona's society. While the family feud between the Montague and the Capulets did play a major role in the early deaths of the protagonist, individual characters also contributed to their demise. Perhaps the character who played this biggest part in the tragedy was Lord Capulet, Juliet's father.
She feels distressed about Tybalt’s death but cannot charge her husband, Romeo, as a murder. She is torn between Tybalt’s death and Romeo’s banishment but decides for Romeo. Romeo turns to Friar Lawrence and claims that being banished from Verona is far worse than being death. When Juliet’s nurse arrives and tells about Juliet’s sorrow, Romeo feels guilty and wants to commit suicide but Friar Lawrence stops him. Romeo and Juliet should be given their wedding night however as soon as dawn is creeping its way Romeo should leave for Mantua.
The day that Romeo and Juliet secretly wed was “Tybalt's doomsday, whose untimely death / Banished the new-made bridegroom from this city” (V. 3. 242-244). On the day that Romeo and Juliet married, Romeo killed Tybalt, and this act of fate drove a wedge between the two newly weds. As Friar John tries to deliver a message of Friar Lawrence’s plan to Romeo, the people of the city fearing sickness, “Sealed up the doors and would not let [Friar John] forth, / So that [his] speed to Mantua there was stayed” (Shakespeare. V. 2.
Romeo & Juliet is a play about two people who fall in love with each other and eventually end up killing themselves. The whole story revolves around them and people who are of importance to the plot. Juliet’s parents butted into her relationships. They forced her to marry Paris even though they knew she wouldn't in the beginning. She even said she would marry Romeo instead of Paris vent though her and Romeo were already wed.
In the play Romeo is shown before Juliet, he’s heartbroken and depressed because he’s “in love” with a girl named Rosaline but the feeling isn’t mutual. Later he meets Juliet and the next three days he has convinced her to get marry but the table turns and now he’s banished. Juliet who fakes her death, leaving her family in shock and in sadness, just so she can be with Romeo. While some believe this play is Romeo’s Play, I maintain that this is Juliet’s play.
By holy Laurence to fall prostrate here, and beg your pardon: pardon, I beseech you! Henceforward I am ener ruled by you’’(Shakespear IV.ii. 18-22) Juliet promised to focus on Paris and only Paris, but ended up meeting Romeo, falling in love with him, and betraying her father’s trust.

She begs Friar Laurence for a solution saying that she “long(s) to die/If what thou speak’st speak not of remedy,” to which Friar Laurence replies, “Hold daughter, I do spy a kind of hope/… take thou this vial” (4.1.67-68, 69, 95).

In William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet there are many different forces to blame for the tragic deaths of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. Some might say the haste of the young lovers is to blame, others might say it was the feud between the Montague and Capulet families that brought on the tragic deaths. I believe that it was the Capulet parents that are to blame.

Tybalt let his anger get the best of him, which caused him his life, Mercutio’s life, and Romeo’s banishment.
