Juliet can also be blamed because she makes decisions. She chooses marry Romeo Even she knows Romeo's her family enemy. "O my only love sprung from my only hate" (ACT 1 SCENE 5) She also decided to takes sleeping drug from Friar Lawrence and to portend to be death. When she wakes up Romeo was death so she also killed herself. "O happy dagger this is thy sheath; there rust, and let me die" (ACT 5 SCENE 3) In conclusion, I think no one person was to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet the character's I have written about all had apart to play in the choices they made. But fate/ destiny also had a role and certain things just happened without Romeo and Juliet being able to do anything about them. For e.g. Romeo didn't get Friar Lawrence litter haven looked all the characters. I blamed Tybalt the most because he was always wanted to fight and he hated Montague's even we find Tybalt from the beginning say what, drawn and take of peace? I hate the word, as I hate,, hell, all Montagues, and thee. This shows how mach hates families each other, I think this hate between the families Montagues and Capulets is mostly to blame. ?? ?? ?? ??
