In Romeo and Juliet, the family feud is responsible for the deaths of both Romeo and Juliet. Had there not been a family feud, there would have been no need for Romeo and Juliet to hide their love. Likewise, Friar Lawrence would not have had to devise a plan to help the couple escape.

If the Capulets and Montagues had resolved their differences, both Romeo and Juliet would have lived to have a happy life. The Montagues and Capulets realize the error of their ways a little too late. Nevertheless, both families resolve their differences after losing their loved ones.

It is sad to think that Romeo and Juliet could have lived if two families had not hated each other. All the other instances in the play happen due to the hatred between two families. Although the families resolve their differences in the end, it is too late to save Romeo and Juliet. Two innocent young people die but possibly not in vain. The future will be be better for the remaining Montagues and Capulets.

Theory: what is the importance of the feud in the play?

“Romeo and Juliet” was written by the famous Shakespeare in the mid-1590s, the play is famous because it basically sets an example of forbidden love. Romeo and Juliet is one of the most performed plays that was written by Shakespeare. As said in the prologue “Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” This statement means that both families are from Veron, they are the same in dignity but they have been feuding for a really long time.

But the feud of both families is what makes the play so interesting. In Romeo and Juliet, the family feud is responsible for everything, the death of Romeo and Juliet. If there wasn’t a family feud, then Romeo and Juliet will not need to hide their love. In addition, Friar Lawrence would not have had to create a plan to help them escape so that they can be together.

If the Capulets and Montagues had stopped fighting, Romeo and Juliet would have lived happily ever after. After both Romeo and Juliet die The Montagues and Capulets realize the causes and effects of their feud. In addition, both families solve their problems after losing both Romeo and Juliet.

It was not only the feuding that lead to the death of both lovers, but they both lead themselves to death. It is the fault of Romeo and Juliet because they were the ones that made the bad decisions. They both choose to love each other and keep seeing each other and did not think about the consequences of their actions. Fate is responsible for all the tragedy and causes for the death of the lovers.
