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.
Interpretation of Romeo and Juliet What would cause young lovers to mysteriously commit suicide so they can be together? Is it their parents who forbid them to see one another, or is it themselves? William Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet, tells about two young "star-crossed lovers" whose deaths were caused by fate, not their parents or themselves. First of all, Romeo and Juliet were from feuding families: Romeo a Montague, and Juliet a Capulet. Romeo was so depressed about his unrequited love for Rosaline when it just so happens, he goes to a masquerade party.

While some may argue that Friar Laurence is the cause of Romeo and Juliet's death, Fate is actually to blame. This is shown clearly at the beginning of the play with the mention of "star-crossed lovers," as well as throughout the play with references to "fortune" or "stars." Fate caused Romeo and Juliet to fall in love as well as meddled in the situations regarding both Romeo and Juliet, therefore causing their demise and fulfilling its duty.

Blame for the Deaths of Romeo and Juliet The two people or things I would most blame for their deaths are Romeo and fate. The reason for blaming Romeo is because he was too hasty, organised everything in secret and he was blinded by love. I think fate is also to blame as it also brought bad luck and also the letter did not reach Romeo. In the play Romeo was being too hasty by getting married so quickly to Juliet. This is shown by Romeo saying: “Then plainly know, my heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet; … But this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today.” This shows us that Romeo wasted no time in getting married.
In William Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet had many issues leading towards Romeo and Juliet to commit suicide towards the end of the play. When blaming someone it means responsibility for something that is wrong or deserving censure. Accordingly, Friar Lawrence is openly accountable for Romeo and Juliet’s death. With this intention, he does not make one, but three faults that direct to their death. In particular, he marries Romeo and Juliet, he depended upon Friar John with a letter of essential information to be delivered to Romeo, and he took off when Juliet was in jeopardy at the tomb.
The scene of when they first meet, the fight between Tybalt and Mercutio, and the final death scene all reveal why the two of them cannot be together in the end. Romeo and Juliet are ultimately killed because of their decisions and fate. The effects of Romeo and Juliet’s decisions and fate are first apparent in the scene when they first come together. When Romeo says to Juliet in the Capulet party, "Thus from my lips, by thine my sin is purged" (I,v,108), and then he kisses her, it obviously exhibitions how they exercise their choice to love each other. After discovering each other’s identities, Romeo proclaims, "My life is my foe’s debt" (I,v,119), and Juliet states, "My only love sprung from my only hate" (I,v,140).
Capulet made another rash decision by pushing forward the date Juliet and Paris were to be wed. In fact, this led to the complication of Juliet rushing to Friar Lawrence to plan a fake death so she could be with Romeo. Specifically, Romeo and Juliet meeting was a mistake made by Lord Capulet’s hasty decision. Capulet had to send out invitations to his party, upon which Romeo and Juliet originally met.

These together provide suspense and a deeper understanding of the plot as a whole. Act I incorporates foreshadowing early on to suggest that the love of Romeo and Juliet will have terrible consequences. Shakespeare's use of symbolism and tone in this act further suggest that Romeo and Juliet were never supposed to fall in love. Romeo wasn’t even supposed to be at the Capulet’s masquerade ball. Romeo first sees that “this night's revels” (I.iv.109), the night he meets Juliet, will “expire the term/ of a despised life” (I.iv.110), yet he still goes to the party with those risks.
To even more complicate the plot, Mr. Capulet promised Paris that will Juliet “shall be married to” him (R&J 3.4.21). This arrangement happens because Juliet was sad about Tybalt’s death and Romeo’s banishment. The marriage forces the Juliet to fake her death, which is the reason for Romeo’s suicide. Romeo committed suicide because he did not her death was fake. This is a bad decision because Juliet and Friar Lawrence should have found a way to tell Romeo before she fakes her death.
