When he refused, Romeo's closest friend Mercutio steeped in and drew his sword. Romeo intervened to try to stop them from warfare, but according to Mercutio (who was now dying) gave Tybalt the opportunity to kill him, "I was hurt under your arm".
They are also too young to love because they are not mature enough. Their lack of maturity influences their decisions, leading to them finding abrupt solutions, such as suicide. After Balthasar told Romeo that Juliet died, he proclaimed, “I do beseech you, sir, have patience/Your looks are pale and wild do import/ Some misadventure” (5.1.27-29).

Friar Lawrence is responsible for the deaths of the lovers because he was secretive with their relationship, he was unable communicate effectively, and he had a cowardly persona. Friar Lawrence thought it was a good idea to keep Romeo and Juliet’s relationship a secret. He was unaware that this would be a cause of their deaths. Friar Lawrence said to Romeo when he gave consent to marry Romeo and Juliet, “come, young waverer, come, go with me, in one respect I’ll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to your households’ rancor to pure love” (II. iii.
71-72). In addition, Friar Lawrence marries Romeo and Juliet without even thinking of the consequences that the marriage will bring; he just does it in hopes that “this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3. 98-99). Friar Lawrence may have good intentions in mind, but his actions played a heavy role in the whole tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.
