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.

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
