Romeo & Juliet; Who Is to Blame?

Romeo & Juliet; who is to blame?
In the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare the two main characters go through a series of events that makes the couple take their lives. Who was responsible? Was it fate or was it influenced? Many people were responsible for the demise of Romeo and Juliet. Most to blame was Romeo himself. He acted hastily, he was irresponsible, and he was violent.
Romeo acted very hastily; he didn’t think over his actions and the consequences that may follow. He met Juliet, kissed her, and fell in love instantly said in
“I have been feasting with mine enemy,
Where on a sudden one hath wounded me,
That's by me wounded: both our remedies
Within thy help and holy physic lies:”
When Friar Laurence asks Romeo where he's been, Romeo, who has been hanging out with Juliet, uses a familiar metaphor to describe how he and Juliet fell in love. 16th century lovers were always running around saying things like "Oh, I've been wounded" to describe their passion and love for each other. Another action of his hastiness was when he asked Juliet to   join him in marriage within 24 hours of knowing each other and not even taking into mind that she is a Capulet and he is a Montague. He wasn’t aware of the things that could happen if either parent found out. It would make the feud between the Capulet’s and Montague’s erupt
Romeo was irresponsible; he put himself and his wants before others. A perfect example of this is how he marries Juliet so quickly. As an illustration, in Act II scene iv Romeo tells the nurse, “And there, she shall at Friar Lawrence cell be shrived and married.” In this quote, Romeo is asking the nurse to have Juliet meet him at Friar Lawrence’s so they can be married. This shows his irresponsibility because it shows how much he is rushing into this relationship with Juliet after meeting her only once.
