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.


I believe that Juliets parents were at fault because they pushed her to marry paris even though she didnt want to, which caused her to go to friar lawrence to come up with a plan so that she wouldnt break her vows to romeo. they ended up coming up with the plan about the sleeping potion, and we all know how that ended up.

I truly believe that the Capulets' and Montagues' have the fault for Romeo and Juliet's death. Yes, there is a couple of people that you could blame for their death. Like Tybalt, for basically begging Romeo to go to the Capulet party where he met Juliet. Again Tybalt could be blamed because he wanted to fight Mercutio and Romeo tried to stop them from fighting, but Tybalt ends up dead. Since Mercutio killed Tybalt, Romeo had lots of rage towards Mercutio that leads him to kill Mercutio. The Prince to has fault here, he is the reason why Romeo has to leave Verona to Mantua and makes things hard for the couple to be together. Friar, Laurence isn't so innocent as we think he is, he also has some reason to be blamed. The friar knew that Romeo was recently weeping about Rosaline, and suddenly just forgets about her makes us wonder that maybe he really doesn't know what love is yet. Plus he has just met Juliet and already wants to marry her, come on Friar Romeo is a young boy who just needed to get to know Juliet better before marriage.But so the Friar still marry them, not thinking about the consequences, But he does think that their marriage might end their families feud. Friar Laurence also should have made sure that Romeo knew about the plan he had made before poisoning Juliet. Now comes Friar Jhon who isn't really much help in the story, because Friar Laurence tells him to send a letter to Romeo who is in Mantua but Friar Jhon can never get it to Romeo. Balthasar sees that Juliet is dead and that they are having a funeral for her, he quickly goes to tell Romeo about his Wifes death. Keep in mind that Balthasar doesn't know that Juliet isn't really dead, so like a good friend he told Romeo. If Balthasar hadn't been so noisy and not told Romeo then maybe Romeo would have never found out. Now because Romeo thinks Juliet is dead he then decides to kill himself to be with Juliet. Since Romeo thinks Juliet is dead he wants to die next to his wife, so he buys a poison from a poor man. The poor man should have never sold Romeo the poison to kill himself in the first place. Now that we know all the people who could be blamed it is time to talk about the people with most blame. We all know that their families had been in a feud for a really long time and that they don't like each other. Well then when they met for the first time in the Capulet house they fell in love instantly, it was love at first sight. Everything was going really smooth until they both found out each other's last name. Since then they both knew that they could never let anyone know about their love for each other because they knew that their parents would never allow that to be. Now you see that if their parents didn't hate each other then Romeo and Juliet would have told their parents about their love with no problem. Romeo and Juliet feel like they have to keep it a secret and do a lot of things behind their parents back. Yes, they are still young and probably should have not done some of the things they did. But still, none of the people listed above and or events would have been like that if it weren't for their parents. Those people would not have been blamed for anything, because there would be no secret marriages between the young lovers.
