Who is at fault for all the problems in Romeo and Juliet

I think that Romeo is most a fault for most of the problems in the story. I think that he is because Romeo killed Tybalt after Tybalt killed Mercutio, and he confronted Juliet.

1st piece of evidence that shows that romeo is at fault

One piece of evidence that shows that Romeo is at fault is that he killed Tybalt after Tybalt killed Mercutio and then he got banished. Shakespeare writes," Romeo slew him; he slew Mercurtio. Who know the price of his dear blood doth owe?... Immediately we do exile him hence." (3.1.184-190) This proves that Romeo slayed Tybalt and that because of that he got exiled to Mantua. This also shows that Romeo is at fault for his banishment which leads to many more problems.

2nd piece Evidence that shows that Romeo is at fault

My second piece of evidence to show that Romeo is at fault is that Romeo confronted Juliet at the party. Shakespeare writes, "Then don't move while I act out my prayer. Kisses her. Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purged."(1.5.5.105-107) This shows that Romeo confronted Juliet at the party and if he had not done that he wouldn't have had any of the problems in the first place.

3rd piece of evidence that shows that romeo is at fault

The third piece of evidence that shows that Romeo is at fault is that he invited himself to the Capulet party. Shakespeare writes"I’ll go along, no such sight to be shown,

But to rejoice in splendor of mine own."(1.2.5.103-104) This shows that Romeo will go to the party even though he is a Montague and it is a Capulet party and those two families have a feud. This will produce almost all of the problems of the story because he went to the party.

Opposing View

Some people may think that Friar Lawrence is at fault but that is not true. It is not true because Friar didn't kill Tybalt or make Romeo kill Tybalt he just married Romeo and Juliet for the sake of hopefully breaking the feud between their families, and giving Juliet the drug but he didn't make her take that either he just provided her with options.
