Romeo and Juliet want to get married so Romeo goes to Friar Laurence. “Then plainly know my heart's dear love is set on the fair daughter of the rich Capulet (2.3.57-58).” Romeo and Juliet love each other a lot so they choose to get married without thinking of the consequences. Even some of the smarter people in Verona make huge mistakes. Even the friar who gives the advice doesn't think before he makes his decision. 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.
While some may argue that Romeo and Juliet’s personalities are responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, it is actually the mentors’ fault because of the encouraged marriage, the complicated plan, and thoughtless consequences. The mentors first go wrong when the Nurse and Friar set up a secret marriage for Romeo and Juliet. It is the Nurse, who tells Juliet that in the cell “Stays a husband to make [her] a wife”(II.vi.69). With the help of the Friar and the Nurse, they are able to set up a time and a place for the secret marriage. Rather being true mentors and guiding them, they are allowing this quick marriage to happen.
Shakespeare states in the prologue “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life/Whose misadventured piteous overthrows/Doth with their death bury their parents' strife,” (Shakespeare Prologue.6-8). Most scholars identify that those lines are explaining that Romeo and Juliet fall in love with each other and become lovers, despite being member of opposite families in the feud. With friar marrying the Friar marrying the teens together leads them one step closer to their tragic death, and ending the disastrous feud. Another way to fully analyze this idea is when Romeo approaches Friar Laurence to ask him to marry him with Juliet. In the text when the Friar finally gets through to the shock of the surprising news he then states “For this alliance may so happy prove/To turn your households' rancor to pure love,” (Shakespeare II.iii.91-92).
Instead of Friar Lawrence slowing the couple’s intention of getting married, he offered to be “... thy assistance...for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love...” (2.3.90-93). Friar Lawrence had a tendency to rush the events. He played a parent figure in this story and did not stop the marriage from happening. He gives insightful advice about The Nurse shows her impatience when she persuades Juliet to “...marry the county..” because “...he’s a lovely gentleman…” and “ Romeo is a dishclout to him.”(3.5.218-220). She expresses the feeling of doubt because she believes that Romeo will not return home.
All of these are wonderful reasons as to why the friar and the Nurse are the primary suspects of the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. First off Friar Lawrence is the main reason Romeo and Juliet suffer so greatly. He allows them to get married, even though they are too young for marriage. He allows the marriage in hopes it will stop the feuding of the two houses. He says “ ‘In one respect, I’ll thy assistant be;/ for this alliance may so happy prove/ to turn your households rancor to pure love./” (Shakespeare 2.3.90-92).

For example when she fell in love with Romeo knowing that he was a Montague and that the Capulets and the Montagues were enemies. She knew it was wrong and even then she said… “Thy Purpose marriage, send me word To-morrow”(Act: II Si), she proposes, knowing that he was a Montague and a family enemy. Juliet should have told her parents that she was married to Romeo when her parents told her she was to marry Paris. Her parents would have no option but to let them be together. Both her and Romeo were blinded to everything except each other and did not think before doing, for example, Juliet should have ensured that Romeo found out her plan, before she did it.
