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.
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.
Juliet panics and receives a potion from Friar Lawrence which makes her a appear dead for 42 hours. Friar Lawrence arranges for Romeo to break in to the Capulet family tomb and take Juliet to Mantua. The message to Romeo is delayed and he hears from another source that Juliet is dead. Romeo goes to Juliet's tomb and after killing Parris he decides he can not live with out Juliet so he drinks some poison and dies. Juliet awakes to find Romeo dead decides she can not live with out him so she stabs herself and dies.
At this party he met Juliet, and immediately fell in love with her. He later finds out that she is a Capulet, the rival family of the Montagues. He decides that he loves her anyway and they confess their love for each other during the very famous "balcony scene" in which they agreed to secretly marry the next day. Friar Lawrence agreed to marry them in an effort to end the feuding between the families. Unfortunately, the fighting gets worse and Mercutio (Montague) a good friend of Romeo ends up in a fight with Tybalt (Capulet), Juliet's cousin.
Little does he know that Juliet's father wants her to marry Paris. Juliet is against this, and the next day, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet in secret. The nurse then passes the message on to Juliet and tells her that the wedding is arranged for two o'clock. They get married in the chapel, and Romeo sees the Capulets in the street. Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo's best friend, so Romeo kills Tybalt.
Eager and engrossed with thought of each other, they plan to be soon married. Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry them, and he reluctantly agrees hoping it will end the feud. Soon after the wedding between Romeo and Juliet, Romeo finds Tybalt, now his cousin, and Mercutio arguing in the streets of Verona. When Tybalt and Mercutio begin to brawl, Romeo steps between them, causing Mercutio to be struck with Tybalt's sword causing Mercutio to die. Romeo, driven with a mixture of grief and anger kills Tybalt.
After a twist of fate, Romeo is banished and Juliet is engaged to another man by her father. Juliet decides to fake her death in order to stay true to her love, Romeo, but he does not receive the message of her plan. He learns of her death, journeys to her grave, and poisons himself. Juliet, seeing him dead, kills herself. The tragedy of the lovers heals the brood between the two families.
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.
Another mess up he had was not having a backup plan. His plan was to give Juliet a potion that made her seem dead so that she would not have to marry Paris. A messenger was suppose to bring a message to Romeo telling him Juliet is not actually dead and that he needed to go to the tomb. When he got there he was suppose to wait till she woke up and then they would run away together with their parents thinking that they are dead. This master plan failed drastically, it lead to the deaths of Romeo, Paris, and Juliet.
He is insulting Romeo and killing Mercutio, another Montague. Romeo kill's Tybalt, and as a punishment, he is to leave Verona and never return. The Friar has a plan to unite again Romeo and Juliet, who is supposed to marry Paris by her father demand. The friar makes a potion who will cause Juliet a temporary death-alike situation, and she will not have to marry Paris. Juliet agrees, drinks the portion and apparently die, and the Friar sends a messenger to inform Romeo, but the messenger fail to reach Romeo, and instead a friend of Romeo reaches him and tells him that Juliet is dead because he didn't knew that Juliet is only apparently dead because of the potion.
