A man of whom is supposed to help God’s loving children and followers and a man whom is supposed to know what is best when it comes to being asked for advice. Friar Laurence in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is anything but what a Friar is supposed to be and ends up causing the deaths of four of six characters within the play.

Friar Laurence is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet for three reasons. First, he never should have agreed to marry them in the first place. He did so because of his idea that their marriage might mark the end of the bitter feud between the Montagues and Capulets.

Although his heart was certainly in the right place, his decision ignored the possibility that several things could go wrong.
Friar Lawrence would take most of the blame for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet because he was an adviser to them and he was the one who gave Juliet the idea of drinking a 42hr sleeping potion which was not a good idea.

The Friar knew what was going on between Romeo and Juliet yet, he didn’t tell them to slow down, sit and talk to them about their relationship or try talking with both families and try to end the feud between them (if that was the case). He should’ve done something to prevent this from happening. And also, he shouldn’t have given the sleeping potion to Juliet.

Also, he should just told Romeo that Juliet was going to take a potion that was going to make Juliet look dead so she could miss her wedding to Paris.

Romeo killed himself because he thought Juliet was dead causing Juliet to kill herself. It is Juliet’s fault because she loved Romeo back who is a Montague and left her “fiance” Paris.
