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.
With the help of Friar Laurence and Juliet’s wet nurse, they are secretly married. Tragedy strikes when Romeo is exiled for killing Juliet’s cousin and Juliet is forced to marry someone else. Juliet fakes her death with the help of Friar Laurence, but Romeo thinks Juliet is truly dead and kills himself in grief. Juliet, seeing her lover dead upon waking up, also kills herself. If it weren’t for Friar Laurence’s irresponsible
Second, he arranged Juliet’s fake death. Third he didn’t get the note to Romeo fast enough. Friar Lawrence is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because, yes R&J came up with the idea of marriage, it was the friar that followed through with it, and married them. If the Friar had not agreed to marry them, then who knows what would have happened. They could have run away and gotten married somewhere else where they could have lived happy and in peace, or they could have just not gotten married and live completely different lives.
Mark Overby says, “Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.” Love, a magnificent and wonderful emotion, not only includes admiration, but requires sacrifice. William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, revolves around the children of two rival families, the Montagues and the Capulets. This feud even has the citizens of the town, Verona, involved in this ancient rivalry. The children, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, fall deeply into a love that is forbidden. The young lovers are willing to do anything to be with one another; even if that means they have to sacrifice their lives for each other.
Him forcing Juliet to get married only left Juliet two choices and that was to either run away or get married, and of course we all know that her getting marred to anyone but Romeo wasn't an option. If he had never forced her to getting married then she would not have done what she did. She did not have an option to say NO because when she did say no he threatened to throw her away. Lord Capulet "Hang thee, young
Every twist and turn that happens in this tragedy is just an effect of his or her behavior. When Juliet is dead in Romeo’s eyes, he plans his suicide, and exclaims that he wants to “Die with a restorative!’ (iv.i.i). His crazy thinking has led to him thinking he needs to kill himself to defy fate. This shows his irrationality, how he overreacts to everything. His mind is so twisted that he thinks everyone in the world is against him.
More evidence that Romeo and Juliet in love. After the party, Romeo meets Juliet at the balcony. When Juliet says she loves Romeo, she meant she truly loves him. Even though Romeo is a Montague, she admits that she is willing to marry him regardless of their unfortunate situation. However, she wouldn 't love Romeo as long if he loves her, and wish that he wouldn 't be a Montague.
Prior to this, free will is such a debatable topic of why one problem is deemed to happen. An illustration, William Shakespeare demonstrates is when Romeo and Juliet decide to marry each other, within the first couple of days they meet, “she leaves me so satisfied? Th’ exchange of thy love’s faithful vow for mine” (2.2.132). Knowing that they are from rivalry families, we as readers don 't know the consequences they will later undergo. Although, Shakespeare immediately spoils his readers that, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth their death bury their parents strife” (7).
The book states, “ ...bring thee cords made like a tackled stair, which to the high topgallant of my joy must be my convoy in the secret night,” (222). Romeo did state before that he wanted to take Rosaline’s maidenhead but she declined; now, he has Juliet to do that with. It seems that way because he says it is the highest point of his joy. Then, in the article it says, “Romeo expresses to Friar Lawrence, that unlike Rosaline, Juliet returns his love, that being one of the reasons he loves her,” (Urena). Romeo only loves Juliet because she is the only girl that is willing to show him affection, that is absolutely not true love.
Without the Friar Romeo wouldn't have been pushed to marry Juliet, he most likely would've ended up finding another beautiful girl and fall in love. The Friar and the Nurse were the only people striving for them to be together, but they didn't think about the consequences. They pushed and fought for something that was never meant to be from the start. The Friar had the perfect plan but Friar John couldn't deliver the letter just for the mere fact that he had to go visit a sick friend, but that is Shakespeare for you. At the end of the book the Friar had confessed his plan to the prince.
“The blame Game” If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty. Friar laurence was responsible for marrying Romeo and Juliet. The nurse and them three was the only one’s that knew about it. If they wouldn’t have never kept the marriage a secret the prince wouldn’t have Romeo banned from the town and Romeo and Juliet could’ve lived happily ever after.
