This question has been bothering people, and yet to be answered. There are indeed many variables that have affected this, but I think Romeo himself is responsible for his own death and the one of his wife Juliet.

Recently we have read the renown tragic play of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare. As we all know, this tragedy ends by the untimely death of Juliet and her Romeo. But after putting down the book, a question comes to mind: who is truly at fault for the death of those two teenagers? Who is truly responsible for turning this story into a tragedy? Or is anyone even guilty at all? After some reflection, I have come to the conclusion that nobody is really at fault, but that everybody did a little something and that all those little somethings added up to create a big something, the death of the two protagonists. Yet, if I had to choose the people who, although unintentionally, contributed to this tragic ending, I believe that Lord Capulet and Benvolio are the most to blame, for their lack of sentiments and betrayals.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, death is a frequent subject. Whether it’s Romeo comparing “light and dark” or Juliet threatening to kill herself, death is always the topic of conversation. At the conclusion of the story, Romeo and Juliet tragically die. This brings up a drastic question: who is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet? Based off of textual evidence, the feuding families are to blame as everything happened because they were fighting in the first place.
A person’s wants and emotions can result in costly consequences depending on how far they’ll go for what they desire. In William Shakespeare’s drama, Romeo and Juliet, young lovers long to be together but the feud between their parents forces them to make irrational decisions ending in tragedy. The events occurring in Romeo and Juliet resemble similar actions and experiences in the reader’s present day world due to the same feelings of compassion and sometimes frustration taking over a person’s heart and mind. At a young age, teens tend to make decisions depending on their heart instead of their mind. In the beginning of this drama, Romeo attended a masquerade held by Juliet’s family.
There are a couple of people I think are responsible for the death, but it all comes down to one person, the families of Romeo and Juliet. Now, there are a couple of reasons why I think this. The constant feud between the families is definitely one that I think affected their deaths. Romeo and Juliet not being able to be together was like a sin to them. They could never be together and always had to find a way to see each other even for a second, their love was unbearable.
Romeo and Juliet were two star crossed lovers trapped within a battle between the Montagues and Caplulets. They felt as if they truly loved one another, enough to die for this affection. Swallowed his own demise; that is what Romeo did when he caught wind of Juliet's death. Finding Romeo with the icy claws of the afterlife embedded beside him, Juliet killed herself as well. This may seem romantic at the time, however after deep consideration, the conclusion remains that this is not true love. Only the shallowness of loving with the eyes rather than the heart brought this upon them.
Another fight broke out in town square and now Romeo Montague has to pay the price.
