The Friar states that Romeo is not in love at all, but rather developed an admiration determined by appearance. Along with comforting Romeo for the punishment he received, the Friar adds, “This is dear mercy, and thou seest it not.” (A3, S3, L31). Due to being blinded by infatuation, Romeo is obviously unmindful of the light punishment he will undergo.

Former French Military Leader, Napoleon I, outlined the basis of fate, a topic that many people cannot wrap their heads around. He once stated, “Our hour is marked and no one can claim a moment of life beyond what fate has predestined” Life is started by being born, and over by dying. We never know exactly when we are born or die. Even though these two import aspects of life are destined to happen, what occurs in between cannot change the outcome. Even important decisions that can change the present will not be able to change what will occur at the end.
Mercutio is different from Romeo because he does not believe in love and makes fun of Romeo and falling in love so heavily all the time.

For instance, Juliet confesses to Romeo how she is, “…too fond, / And therefore thou mayst think my haviour light” (2.2.102-103). Juliet is aware that the speed at which she fell in love can be considered frivolous, which demonstrates how rushing love is not a mature decision. Juliet having to reassure Romeo that her love is valid implies that falling in love quickly is associated with false feelings. Moreover, Juliet offers her explanation of how she talked openly about her feelings without knowing Romeo was at her balcony, and she asks of Romeo not to, “impute this yielding to light love” (2.2.109).
However, he is not picked and becomes quite jealous of what has occurred. He devises a sinister master plan targeting Othello and Desdemona’s boundless love. In scene one of Act II,, Iago states, “O, you are well tuned now! But I’ll set down the pegs that make this music, As honest as I am” (pg. 37, lines 197-199).

The very instance that the two belong to opposing groups is only one example of destiny's twisted humor. Now some would argue that it is wholly Friar John's fault for not delivering the plans to Romeo. This is viable, yet one could argue that it is ultimately fate's hand for casting a plague upon unsuspecting Friar John, hindering him from completing his crucial mission. Fate, or in this case Fortune, is brought to attention in the play when Juliet consults the stars to deliver Romeo back safely.
