Some by my soul, I’ll never acknowledge thee, nor

Some people may argue that Lord Capulet is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.  In the beginning of the story Lord Capulet wants Juliet to marry Paris in a few years, but after Tybalt dies, Lord Capulet then changes his mind and wants them to get married sooner.  Juliet tells her father, she would rather die than marry Paris, he threatens her and says “Thursday is near, lay hand on heart, advise, an you be mine. I’ll give you to my friend, and you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets. For by my soul, I’ll never acknowledge thee, nor what is mine shall never do thee good. Trust to bethink you. I’ll not be forsworn.” Even though it seems as Lord Capulet was being very harsh with Juliet, he was just doing what he thought was best for her, but he does not know that the Friar went behind his back and married Juliet and Romeo. The general statement is naivety due to act on impulse instead of using logic to solve the problems into properly evaluate the situation to avoid death or conflict.  In the first paragraph, it clearly states that their acting impulsive behavior, evidence of this would be that Romeo falls in love with the first girl he sees Rosalie and then immediately falling in love with the second being Juliet. He then goes to describe how she is of true beauty despite being only with two women. This clearly displays a lack of experience and foolhardiness falling in love so easily.  Lord Capulet is not to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet as they, themselves, created the catastrophe they were in, the reason for this is that instead of making it a peaceful union between Romeo and Juliet to either display their love for one another to the city that was divided or to simply just get married and move away from the issues their families had deep-seeded within. A second reason he is not to blame is that Lord Capulet may have pushed it, but it was Romeo that had caused it to be pushed by their pride in allowing his family’s side to fight instead of encouraging adamantly to walk away.
