Maybe he should have listened to his own advice.“ till holy church incorporate two in one (2.6.37).” Friar makes them happily married without thinking what will happen to him. You never know what could happen to you until the task is done. He could have lost his life to the Capulets or the Montagues. They tended to make the worst decision of all at the end of the play. They made the rashest decision of them all.
She feels distressed about Tybalt’s death but cannot charge her husband, Romeo, as a murder. She is torn between Tybalt’s death and Romeo’s banishment but decides for Romeo. Romeo turns to Friar Lawrence and claims that being banished from Verona is far worse than being death. When Juliet’s nurse arrives and tells about Juliet’s sorrow, Romeo feels guilty and wants to commit suicide but Friar Lawrence stops him. Romeo and Juliet should be given their wedding night however as soon as dawn is creeping its way Romeo should leave for Mantua.
Since Romeo is in Mantua they have to send him a letter telling him about the plan. So Lawrence gives the letter to Friar John. Friar John however is quarantined in a house and is not able to deliver the letter to Romeo. Because John is quarantined Romeo doesn’t get the letter, and is told by Balthazar that Juliet is dead. Since Romeo thinks that Juliet is dead, he returns to Verona and kills himself after killing Paris.
In my opinion I think the most to blame is the Friar Lawrence. If he wasn’t involved in the play, then no bad would’ve happened in Romeo and Juliet. For example, the Friar is most responsible because even though Romeo and Juliet came up with the idea marriage, the Friar was the one who followed through with their idea. So first, he let them and married them. Second, he arranged Juliet’s fake death.
Romeo arrives at the tomb and kills himself, only for Juliet to wake up minutes later. Friar Laurence and Balthasar rush in to whisk the lovers to a safer location. Juliet refuses to leave with them, and Friar Laurence and Balthasar are forced to leave after they hear shouting nearby. Distraught, Juliet kills herself with Romeo’s dagger. Romeo says, “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight” (5.1.37).
Friar is to blame, not only for one action that contributed to their death, but for three actions. Friar Lawrence’s first mistake was allowing Romeo and Juliet to be able to be married so quickly without thinking it through. The Friar had intentions hoping that if he married Romeo and Juliet, it may save the family feud and put it past the families. In the play Friar Lawrence
If the friar was helping all through the story, why was he being blamed for their deaths? He came up with the Juliet goes to sleep plan, but he was helping her ! The friar is a mentor for Romeo and Romeo looked at him as a role model. If they have almost a father son relationship, then why is he still getting blamed for the killing of the two? Friar¨ Hold thy desperate hand art thou a man?
“ Here’s to my love! (drinks the poison) O true apothecary,Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die.”(V.III.129-131.) Romeo them dies next to juliet 's grave and shortly after Friar Lawrence enters the tomb, juliet wakes up and asks where her husband is friar replies that both Romeo and Paris are dead, and that she must leave with him. Juliet refuses to leave, and leaves without her.
This is why they secretly ask Friar Laurence to marry them in secret. If Friar didn’t marry them it would of not started the chain reactions of events that occur next. The play ends with three tragic deaths; those including being Romeo and Juliet. Friar Laurence is mostly to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet, because of he did things in secret, not communicating clearly, and not executing his plans. The first reason why Friar Laurence is to blame is because he married Romeo and Juliet.
So the letter never got to Romeo on time. Meanwhile Friar John was stuck in a town away with the letter holding the truth, someone else came and told Romeo that Juliet had died. (act 4 scene 4 # 2-29 ) Romeo went to her tomb found her dead and killed himself because he thought that his love had died. Seconds after Juliet had awoken and found her love dead next to her. She couldn’t go on without Romeo so she to killed
This plan was made because of how desperate Juliet was to see Romeo again. He wanted to reassure Juliet that she would once again see Romeo but, this plan was made on the spot with evaluation in it. Once the plan of meeting up with Romeo does not go according and Romeo is dead, Friar Laurence has no backup plan with Juliet. .”Thy husband in thy bosom there lies dead; And Paris too. Come, I’ll dispose of thee Among a sisterhood of holy nuns”(V.iii.168-170).
