Rather being true mentors and guiding them, they are allowing this quick marriage to happen. Friar isn’t agreeing with the idea of marriage until Romeo persuaded him enough to say that “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be;/ For this alliance may so happy prove/To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (II.iii.90-93). Since Friar is a holy man, he is trying to act like God, and is trying to fix the feud between the two households by marrying
“Prysmas and Thisbe” and “Romeo and Juliet” have some similarities but, shakespeare wrote it to a different theme. Shakespeare uses the theme of love defeated by tragedy, while ovid uses doomed lovers. shakespeare borrowed some of the same ideas as ovid but, in the end result he modified some. The theme they have in common is star-crossed lovers. Shakespeare was a creative writer but he didn 't come up with everything alone.
“In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; / For this alliance may be so happy prove / To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (II.iii.90-92). Friar Laurence caves in pretty easy after Romeo explains why Juliet is the one. Readers would think that he
The audience and a few others are aware of it but many in the play are not. This rings true when Tybalt tries to fight Romeo. Tybalt calls him a villain and Romeo responds by saying “Tybalt, the reason I have to love thee Doth much excuse the appertaining rage.” (III.I.58-59)He is saying we are supposed to be friends, You don’t know why but this is the reason I will not fight you. Also If Juliet’s parents were aware of the marriage they most likely would not have made her marry Paris. Juliet having to marry Paris was what inspired the plan that led to Romeo and Juliet's untimely demise.
Also, in the prologue, it states that their love was "The fearful passage of their death" (Prologue.9). Both of these quotes show us that the love of these two was destined to end tragically. The masquerade party was, above all, the most important event. The fact that Romeo was wearing a mask with his face hidden, allowed Juliet to fall in love with him before she knew his identity. If Juliet had known who Romeo was, she probably would not have fallen in love with him.
In Romeo and Juliet, there are many complex characters that make this play more dramatic and interesting. Romeo is clearly one example of a complex character, where his romanticism blurs his sense of reality. An example of where this is seen during the play is when he falls for Juliet even though he declares that there is no one better than the woman he previously loved, Rosaline. Another example is when Romeo realizes that because of how he has lost his sense of reality, he has let his friend Mercutio die to one of their enemies: Tybalt. These two instances show how complex a character Romeo is and this shows how people in the real world can be similar to him by being complex and difficult to understand.

Monk Lawrence assumed a key part in the marriage, arranging and demise of Romeo and Juliet.

As she continues to complain about him, Juliet remarks, “O that deceit should dwell / In such a gorgeous palace” (3.2.90-91). The “gorgeous palace” is symbolic of the part of Romeo that she knows, loves, and admires, where deceit may exist. By giving this quality human traits, Juliet is separating deceit itself from Romeo, decreasing his culpability for his actions. Taking the blame from him, in turn, takes any blame off herself for not realizing that he isn’t the gentleman he seemed and the man that she married. Using personification as a tool to offset responsibility for Romeo’s actions gives Juliet the ability to live with her decision to be with him despite his flaws and his despicable actions against her
The Friar could easily manipulate the story to make it sound as if he is responsible for solving the town’s major conflict, and he would receive praise from those around him, thus labeling him a hero. At first, when Romeo approaches Friar Lawrence about marrying him and Juliet, the Friar is taken aback by the lack of time it takes for Romeo to move on from Rosaline.
