Who's Fault Is It?
Romeo & Juliet
Who is most at fault for all the problems?
Romeo says, "Then move not, while my prayer's effect I take" (1.5.108). This proves that Romeo was the first to kiss Juliet. If Romeo wouldn't have kissed Juliet, it would not have made the fight between their families worse. By kissing Juliet, Romeo agitated the fight between the two families.
Romeo says, "I'll tell thee as we pass, but this I pray: That thou consent to marry us today" (2.3.63-64). This proves that Romeo asked Friar Laurence to marry him and Juliet. It shows that Romeo was in such a rush to marry Juliet that he didn't even talk to Friar Laurence about it. Romeo went too fast with the relationship that he didn't think it through and all that could happen if they got married.
Shakespeare writes, "The citizens are up, and Tybalt is slain Stand not amazed. The Prince will doom thee death" (3.1.135-136). This shows that Romeo killed Tybalt. There was already feuding going on between both of the families, but now there is even more to fight about because Romeo killed Tybalt, who was a Capulet. Romeo should not have fought with Tybalt and then the Capulet's wouldn't have another reason to keep fighting with the Montague's.
