Introduction: dead and also decides to take her life,

Introduction: Fate in Romeo and Juliet is very influential however, fate was not the controller of their destiny; the couple remained as free persons capable of making their own moral judgments who had fallen to the consequences of their own ignorance.Synopsis: Lovesick Romeo quickly falls in love with Juliet after  they meet in a party, however an ongoing family feud prevents the couple from being united forever. Friar lawrence has a plan to mend to keep the couple together by helping Juliet fake her own death to fool her family and as an unexpected consequence, fool Romeo. Romeo visits her tomb thinking she is dead and kills himself only later Juliet finds Romeo dead and also decides to take her life, resulting in the tragic end for the pair.1.Killing of Tybalt sealed the fate of the couple: Romeo decides without thinking to kill Juliet’s cousin after the first hour of being married to Juliet. ~First Romeo’s friend Mercutio is killed by Tybalt “Ask for me tomorrow, and / you shall find me a grave man” (3.1.93–94) knowing that killing Tybalt will not bring justice for Mercutio is called altruistic punishment “You’re willing to sacrifice your well-being in order to punish someone who misbehaved.” (Prince 56). Physiological effect is the leading cause of Romeo’s desire for Tybalt’s blood, it is safe to say it is not fate that forced him to kill Tybalt. ~The murder of Tybalt is wrongfully blamed on fate by Romeo. “Difficult decisions tend to make us feel stressed and uncomfortable – we don’t want to feel responsible if the outcome is less than desirable.” (Kay para.1). Meaning blaming fate is a method to relieve their sense of responsibility, something like “It is fate, there was nothing I could do”. It was free will resulted in his desire to kill Tybalt after his friend Mercutio was slain. But only after realizing that it will not bring Mercutio back nor get him the justice he deserves, Romeo feels a sudden remorse after he foresees his fate erected by his actions.”O! I am Fortune’s fool!” (3.1.133). 2.Suicide was their own decision not fate: ~Fate did not play a role in the suicide of Romeo Romeo’s decision to kill himself can be easily observed as self warranted by his own moral judgement. Romeo believing that he cannot live without Juliet, bribed a poor apothecary to sell him his finest poison. “My poverty, but not my will, consents.”(5.1.XX). The poison that Romeo obtained illegally by bribing the apothecary indicates that he is truly serious about taking his life…If Romeo possess the most potent, most toxic poison, it is perfectly justified that he had the intention to take his own life. ~Suicide was thought to be the only way to solve the problem of not being able to live with each other again.Romeo rather than use his brains don’t bother finding another woman.It is very evident that fate did not cause Romeo to take his own life so therefore he had decided his own destiny right at the moment he purchased that vile of poison.3.Marriage wrote their fate: Like reality nothing in life truly ends as happily ever after, these stupid teenagers decided that their love is worth turning backs on family and this ultimately costed them their lives.~Romeo is just a lovesick puppy that will fall for any woman. Romeo only loves juliet because he realises that Rosaline will never return his love so Romeo would naturally feel depressed “Misshapen chaos of well-seeming forms! Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health, Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is! This love feel I, that feel no love in this.” (1.1.169-172). This quote by Romeo himself is describing the pain of his love Rosaline not loving him back. When someone is feeling this way they usually search for a quick way out, in this case he finds Juliet. “Infatuation breeds passion.  True love breeds patience.”- Noelle ThompsonMarriage is not the only option between Romeo and Juliet they are far too young to dedicate their lives to each other. If the teenagers could find deep love for each other in an instant, rather than getting married they should find out if they truly love each other or not. Their families hate each other to the fullest, the couple should have perhaps waited to see if their love was worth turning backs on family. Not only that, they also never knew if they truly loved each other, On (act 2 scene 2 line 90) “Dost thou love me? I know thou wilt say Ay” unlike what she believes she knows, Romeo is a lovesick animal and expressed that same level of love to another girl less than a day ago. (117) “It is too rash too unadvised, too sudden; too like the lightning” Juliet show rational a certain degree of rational thinking knowing that the love between Romeo and Juliet is too rushed, meaning that they should slow things down and see foresee the consequences however her heart takes over from that point onwards and insists on a quick marriage “If that thy bent of love be honorable, thy purpose marriage, send me word to-morrow” Concluding: Our “Star Crossed Lovers” were just a pair of reckless teenagers, who are the most likely to fall in love over night. Quickly devoting themselves to each other creating foolish moral judgments
