He tells Romeo that if he does not leave immediately and not return that he will be put to death.

That is why Romeo and Juliet are the most guilty people causing the tragic
William Shakespeare once said, “Death is a fearful thing”. This does not relate to the play Romeo and Juliet because they are willing to take risks that jeopardize their life. Juliet and Romeo are fine with taking their lives for each other because they are willing to do anything for each other.

They try to overcome their families hating each other, however, they cannot overcome it and eventually they die because of the feud.
In the Elizabethan era crime and punishment was one of the most important things to keep the order in society. Crime and punishment in the Elizabethan era has much to do with Shakespeare’s famous play Romeo and Juliet. The banishment of Romeo after he killed Tybalt in the streets of Verona should have led to Romeo 's execution but got away with a lesser penalty. Later in the play, Romeo says that he would have rather been killed than to be away from Juliet, which shows that the crime and punishment worked well by giving him the worst possible, while still humane punishment. Many lives were taken over the course of the play, none of which were punished with execution.
Later that day, Romeo kills Juliet 's cousin, Tybalt. Tybalt killed Mercutio, a friend of Romeo, and Romeo was exiled. Then, Lord Capulet, Juliet 's father, decided she was going to marry County Paris, she freaks out and takes a potion which makes her seem dead for forty-two hours.

The plan was to have Juliet take a death-stimulating potion to avoid marrying Paris. She would then be buried, and Friar John would give Romeo a note saying to go to the tomb and wait for her
The audience knows that Juliet only took a sleeping potion, but Romeo thinks she is dead and he created a plan to kill himself. “Let me have/A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear/ As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead,/And that the trunk may be discharged of breath/As violently as hasty powder fired/Doth hurry from the fatal cannon’s
The controversy surrounds his actions that he took during the play that ultimately lead to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. To set off the chain of events Friar Lawrence agrees to marry Romeo and Juliet in secret. This would cause lots of problems in the future because Romeo is exiled. To reunite the couple Lawrence gives Juliet a poison that will make her appear dead so that Romeo can return, and take Juliet back to Mantua with him where they will live happily ever after. Since Romeo is in Mantua they have to send him a letter telling him about the plan.
This story finishes in a bad way but made them be finally together forever at some point. Their story ends up both main characters dead in a tomb.
