Honor is a type of love for oneself However sometimes love can kill and inflict hatred for others When one values their honor too highly it may lead to disasters and tragedies In the play Romeo and Juliet the conflicts between the house of Montagues and the house of Capulets is so intense that even the slightest quarrel between the opposing family members can turn into an all out war Throughout the play the honor of the house of Capulets had caused the consequences of many conflicts and deaths Therefore the houses of Capulets are most guilty of the feud for they have highly valued their honor that is worth fighting for To begin with the first cause is the Capulets servants inability to endure the Montague at sight As a result they fought for the honor of their house In the early opening scene the Capulet servants start taunting and asking if the Montague servants would quarrel Act 1 Scene 1 Line 51 in which the Montague servants responded not Act Scene 1 Line 52 Despite the fact that the Montague servants are not looking for trouble the Capulets servants drew their swords anyways Act 1 Scene 1 Line 61 This clearly shows that the Capulet servants have valued their honors too highly in the name of their house for they intend to fight the Montagues without any second thoughts In addition Tybalt refuses to keep peace despite Benvolio who does not intend to fight Consequently Benvolio has no choice but to engage in combat with Tybalt At the beginning of the play Tybalt makes it clear that he is against peace and will fight anyone who stands in his way Act 1 Scene 1 Line 68 Benvolio on the other hand hesitated to fight and said I do but keep the peace Act 1 Scene 1 Line 67 In the end Tybalt calls him a coward and they fight Act 1
