Romeo and Juliet - Who's to Blame?

Uploaded by Turtleman_14 on Sep 07, 2001

Why is it, that we as human beings feel the need to blame someone for every negative situation which occurrs?

It was a case of 'love-at-first-sight' for him, so he felt obligated to seek Juliet at her bowcany, and charm the engagement into existence. However the reality was that the relationship was condemned before it had even began due to the parents hatred for one another.
