He later, then sneaks onto Juliet’s balcony where he openly tells her that he is in love with her. Juliet warns him saying that if anyone were to find him there, he would be killed. But, Romeo being the stubborn boy he is, replies with “And but thou love me, let them find me here.” and decides to risk his life for a girl he barely knows. He then impulsively asks for her hand in marriage “Thy exchange of thy love’s faithful vow for mine.” (Act II, ii, 124) based on the romantic emotions he was feeling at the moment. This was careless and senseless of Romeo to do, as a couple of hours ago he was “in love” with Juliet’s cousin Rosaline.
He pushes them into a hasty secret marriage, without the knowledge or permission of their warring parents. This sets the stage for the secrets that create the tragedy to come. Unable to face the banishment for killing Tybalt, Romeo seeks the advice of Friar Lawrence who scolds him for his despair, “Hast thou slain Tybalt? Wilt thou slay thyself, and slay thy lady that in thy life lives by doing damned hate upon thyself?” (3, 3, 116,) then when Romeo is at his lowest, Friar Lawrence cheers him up, suggesting a comforting visit to his Juliet and then his escape. “Go, get thee to thy love, as was decreed.
The Capulets were the reason Romeo was exiled, thus causing Romeo and Juliet's tragic death. Another cause of their death is influenced by Juliet's own father. He told Juliet that she was to marry a man named Paris. Juliet refused because she loved another man, and because she was secretely married to Romeo. You would think her own father would be understanding of her wishes, but he commanded her to marry Paris or else he would disown her.
Later, Romeo hesitates again about the party but Mercutio convinces him once again. Mercutio and Romeo are ready for the party, they leave: “I fear, too early for my mind misgives some consequence, yet hanging in the starts shall bitterly begin his fearful date” (I.IV.106). This shows that Romeo does not know how to control himself by getting peer pressured again by Mercutio. Several time Romeo doubt his own feelings about not attending the party, but Romeo’s desires get the better of him by leading to his death. Further more, Romeo getting married to Juliet is another bad choice of his.

Usually when people rush into love there is not a very good outcome. Also by keeping their love a secret, Romeo and Juliet did not think of their consequences, which then led to their deaths.

One of them, as said before, is his failure to make outcomes; another one of his flaws is his impulsive nature. Romeo, after having just met Juliet, decides he wants to marry her. Friar Lawrence even warned Romeo about moving to fast . Throughout the play, Romeo made many unwise decisions and for all of them, he had to suffer afterwards.

Hearing this brakes down in tears and begs her parents to not make her do it or to give her more than just three days. When they enforce what they said Juliet goes to Friar Laurence in hopes he will be able to help her. Upon her arrival Fair Laurence gives Juliet a vial of liquid that will make her appear dead, so she can run away and be with Romeo. Even though Juliet was an obedient child she broke the rules not only but refusing to marry Paris but by pretending to be dead in order to live a happy life with
For example, when she trusts the Friar to get the information to Romeo. This information never gets to Romeo, which leads him to kill himself. Juliet could have told Romeo about her plan to take the potion and this would have prevented both of their deaths. Another bad decision was the marriage which complicated the already difficult situation. In conclusion Romeo and Juliet both sacrifice their own lives due to a lot of bad choices.
Romeo and Juliet In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet are portrayed as two adolescent “star-crossed lovers” who in an unfortunate turn of events and miscommunication, end up with their lives tragically turning upside down in a tale of love and misfortune. Although many characters play their own part in the events that occurred, some are more responsible than others. But the question that has arisen is who is truly guilty for the devastating outcome for the two lovers? A reasonable assumption based on the evidence, suggests the most likely characters to be responsible are Friar Laurence, Rosaline, Mercutio and Balthazar. Firstly, it seems as though a likely person to blame would be Friar Laurence.

When she seen Romeo at her families party she fell in love with him. Juliet should have went with her parent’s decision of Paris, she could possibly still be alive.
