Romeo was so depressed about his unrequited love for Rosaline when it just so happens, he goes to a masquerade party. There, he falls for Juliet, the daughter of Lord Capulet, and forgot about Rosaline. When they're finally torn apart, that's when both Romeo and Juliet realize they are from enemy families. Their love, of course, brings down their immediate marriage and Friar Lawrence agrees in hope to stop the feuding families. Unfortunately, Tybalt and Mercutio are killed and Romeo gets banished leaving Juliet without a husband or a cousin.
Tybalt asks for a brawl from Romeo but Mercutio fights instead. Mercutio gets killed by Tybalt and that is what makes Romeo mad and fight Tybalt. At the end of the fight when Romeo kills Tybalt and then realizes what he has done he yells out, “O, I am Fortune’s fool!” (Shakespeare.3.1.143). And he and Juliet both are little toys for fate. But, they never give up on their love.Romeo and Juliet’s traits cause them to go along with their fate and contributes to their downfall.
Another character who died is Tybalt. Tybalt is the nephew of Lady Capulet and the cousin of Juliet. He made a clumsy act of slaying Mercutio which got Romeo quite upset. Suddenly after Mercutio died he calls out "This day's black fate on moe days doth depend/This but begins the woe others must end."(III.i.118-119). Romeo, being so angry that he slew his good friend, ran and slew Tybalt to get him back.
Then, Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel but Tybalt ends up killing Mercutio. In anger from Mercutio’s death, Romeo kills Tybalt which gets him banished to Mantua. Even though he was angry over his friend’s death, this action was a bad decision by Romeo because the banishment caused problems for the lovers. Then, they have to find a way to still be together. To even more complicate the plot, Mr. Capulet promised Paris that will Juliet “shall be married to” him (R&J 3.4.21).
The pair of star crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet were destined to end in tragedy. The events that led to their tragic end included, Romeo being invited to the Capulet party where Romeo and Juliet first meet, Romeo murdering Tybalt, and the letter not arriving to warn Romeo of Juliet’s fake death. Fate led Romeo and Juliet to their deaths and there was nothing the pair could do about
This was the first action of many which led to the deaths of two lovers, Romeo and Juliet. When Romeo and Juliet decided to get married, they too were bringing their suicides closer to becoming reality. They each fell in love with the looks of the other; it was love at first sight. However, they both knew that neither of their families would accept that they fell in love with someone from the feuding family. So they decided to marry secretly, not realizing that their parents might have plans to have them married.
He decides that he loves her in spite of this, and so does Juliet. They confess their love for each other during the very famous balcony scene in which they agree to secretly marry the next day. Friar Laurence agrees to marry them in an attempt to end the fight between the families. Unfortunately, the fight between the Montagues and the Capulets gets worse and Mercutio (Romeo's best friend) ends up in a fight with Tybalt (Juliet's cousin). Tybalt kills Mercutio, which causes Romeo to kill Tybalt in a fit of rage.
Moreover, Friar Laurence agrees to marry the two secretly which is also a cause for their deaths. In this essay we will discuss how the deaths of both Romeo and Juliet are caused by the poor decisions of each of the above characters. When Romeo decides to go to the Capulet's party, he has already set the stage for his death. If he didn't go to the party, he wouldn't meet Juliet and the whole story would never happen. You may argue that it is fate for Romeo to meet the servant who let him know about the party.
Unfortunately, the fighting gets worse and Mercutio (Montague) a good friend of Romeo ends up in a fight with Tybalt (Capulet), Juliet's cousin. Tybalt killed Mercutio, which caused Romeo to kill Tybalt in an angry rage. For this, Romeo is banished from Verona. At the same time, the Capulet's were planning Juliet's marriage to Paris. Juliet didn't want to marry this man so she arranges with Friar Lawrence to fake her own death with a sleeping potion that would make everyone think that she was dead.
