Nonetheless one person is at most to blame and his name is Friar Lawrence. Marrying Romeo and Juliet so quickly without thinking is one reason Friar Lawrence is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo beseeches Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet later the same day they meet (2.3.68). The friar should think before he acts upon Romeo’s request. He knows that Romeo is not marrying for love but for looks.
He knew that marrying them was bad, because he know about the family feud. Also, he could have told the two family leaders, Capulet and Montague that their child are in love and he would like to marry them, but no he marries them secretly. This shows that fate caused Friar Lawrence to go against his better judgement and secretly marry Romeo and Juliet. This supports the thesis, because of fate, Friar Lawrence went against his better judgement and secretly married them, which caused more

If the anger between Capulets and Montagues had not been, the marriage could have formed a stronger alliance between the houses. Still, without knowing that they were enemies they fell in love. When Juliet discovers the truth she exclaims, “My only love, sprung from my only hate.
In theory, this should have caused Juliet to feel pure hatred towards Romeo. Ironically, Tybalt 's death brought the couple even closer together in love. However, the Capulet family did not know of the secret relationship and wanted to put Romeo to his death. Tybalt 's death affected each member of the Capulet family and moved the plot closer to its tragic ending. As Tybalt 's legacy, Romeo was exiled from Verona, and for a time, could not see Juliet anymore.

How Does Shakespeare make the passage with Don John so Dramatic? (Act3 Scene2) In the Act 3 Scene 2 of the book “Much Ado About Nothing” Don John is planning to ruin the marriage of Claudio and Hero, (daughter of Leonato) in order to get revenge to his brother Don Pedro.
