Romeo and Juliet were responsible for their own deaths. Dicuss.

Romeo and Juliet were responsible for their own tragic deaths, they have themselves to blame, Romeo and Juliet are only children and are not yet developed adults. In the play Romeo and Juliet’s emotions take over and it took their minds off the rest of their surroundings, they were crazy in love and unaware that what they were doing was wrong. Romeo and Juliet didn’t care about anything besides them being together. It was their choice to take their own lives but it was because they could not live without each other. Romeo doesn’t think about what he is doing, first he wanted Rosaline then moved on to Juliet and in a day they were married, he didn’t think about what he was doing, which then led to their undeniable death. (Act 2, Scene 2, line 90): Juliet hurries Romeo into marriage by saying “Dost thou love me? I know thou wilt say ‘ay’; and I will take thy word.” “O gentle Romeo, if thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully”. The two couples have an unexperienced love for each other. It was a bad idea to commit suicide after seeing each other dead, they didn’t get forced to do anything, it ended like this because of their mistakes. Friar Lawrence might have been blamed for giving Juliet the potion but he only tried to make things better. The information given from the messenger to Romeo was never delivered, which then led to Romeo getting the poison and killing himself, and Juliet stabbing herself with Romeo’s dagger. The couple have an irrational behaviour, once Romeo discovered Juliet appearing dead at the Capulet’s tomb, he killed himself and Juliet was to blame for Romeo’s death and when Juliet killed herself, Romeo was to blame. After seeing each other dead the two lovers cannot live nor breathe without each other. Although Romeo and Juliet were responsible for their own physical deaths, fate still played a big role in getting Romeo and Juliet to even think about committing suicide. Romeo and Juliet made selfish and immature decisions. From the moment Romeo and Juliet fell in love all trouble started. Romeo and Juliet were sucked into being madly in love and happy that they were unconscious they were soon to be dead. Juliet was a different person until she fell in love with Romeo. Romeo and Juliet are responsible for their own fate, love caused Romeo and Juliet to die. Romeo and Juliet had no way of saving their lives. Judgement and time played a big role in their deaths. Romeo and Juliet rushed through love rather than taking their time. Everything Romeo and Juliet did and thought resulted to their own death.
