Who is to blame? The Romeo and Juliet story is a very sad tragedy but there could have been lots of moments in the story where they could have done something and it could of change the outcome of the story. I believe the way the story ended was mostly the friar fault because the decision he made. First of all, the first reason the storied ended sad was because he married them secretly. He didn’t tell anyone about the secret marriage he arranged for Romeo and Juliet, not even their families. Keeping a secret that big from their families was going to end horrible in the first place. Also they barely knew each other, Romeo and Juliet just met and he knew that. But he stilled married them together after just a few of hours they met. The friar should have thought of the decision he was making when he married a 13 year old girl with a 16 year old boy. Another reason that it was the friar fault was because he kept trying to fix the problem but made it worse. The decision he made by making a plan to pretend to kill Juliet for two days with a potion and sending a letter to Romeo telling him that she was not dead was just a bad plan in the first place. So many things could of gone wrong, like in the story Romeo actually thinks she dead so he kills himself with the poison and Juliet wakes up to find him dead, then she kills herself by stabbing a knife through her. One factor that could of gone wrong was what if she did wake up and her parents and Paris saw her alive, she would have to marry Paris. Also how would the friar explain that Juliet died and woke up and he had something to do with it? He would have to tell the truth that Romeo and Juliet are married or he would have to marry Paris and Juliet. If I was the friar and I had a chance to go through all that again I would make different chooses. To begin with, I would not have married them at all. Maybe this would have caused fewer problems because he wouldn’t have had a problem to keep a secret and worry about getting caught. Also Romeo and Juliet just met, maybe not marring them would have been a good choose and I would have tried to talk to Romeo and tell him to slow down, that he moving…
Romeo and Juliet and their fate
Fate is the supposed power that predetermines events. Romeo and Juliet, the two young lovers in
William Shakespeare' s Romeo and Juliet, ended up becoming a large part of what could be called "fate".
Fate seemed to control their lives and force them together, becoming a large part of their love, and the
ending of their parent's hatred. Fate became the ultimate control power in this play, and plays a large part in
modern everyday life, even if we don't recognize it…

My example of an antagonist is Tybalt compared to Romeo. Tybalt is constantly trying to start fights with Romeo and, eventually, he succeeds. Because of Tybalt, Romeo is banished from the city Verona, where his beloved wife Juliet lives. Another example of an Antagonist is, Paris compared to Juliet. Paris is the main reason that Juliet deems it necessary to take a potion to fake her death. This ultimately leads to the death of both Romeo and Juliet in the end.

Who is responsible for Romeo and Juliet's death
I think many people believe in Fate,but in this condition I don't think Romeo and Juliet's death can be simply explained by fate. We need to take into account everything around them, like their parents,Romeo himself.....and if their love was not a secret would it have ended in tragedy?
I am going to declare why Romeo and Juliet's death can not simply explain by fate,
and these are my point
-Romeo is responsible for his own death.
