Friar Laurence believes that Romeo and Juliet should go, “Go wisely and slow,” he then says that if you go to fast bad thing will happen so he said this, “They stumble that run fast (2.3.94).” Romeo gets this advice while he tries to get Friar Laurence to marry them so he tells them to take it slow and steady. How might they not listen to this advice? They need to learn this lesson because they fall in love without actually knowing each other or even thinking about the consequences. They don't ask who they are they just fall in love.
The play `Romeo and Juliet´, by William Shakespeare, two lovers come together and fall deeply in love. Unfortunately, their love comes to an end because of a persistent feud between their families. Although there are several people in this play that contributed to Romeo and Juliet's death, Friar Laurence is the person most to blame for their deaths. There are many aspects that caused the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, one bad decision that Friar Laurence makes is married Romeo and Juliet too quickly, without thinking of what would happen. Thus, Friar Laurence should have made sure Romeo should have known the plan before poisoning Juliet.
He assumed that marrying the teenage Romeo and Juliet would stop the long-lasting feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I’ll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” (Shakespeare, 2.3) Not only did Friar Lawrence irresponsibly marry Romeo and Juliet after the naïve
Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
After they decided they wanted to get married right away, Romeo and Juliet go to Friar’s cell to get married. Friar first questions the love because Romeo was in love with another women only a few hours ago. He only agrees to marry them because he thinks it will end the family tension. “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).
For example, Romeo intrudes into Capulet’s party while being aware of the fact that he, a Montague, would probably be killed or harmed if he were discovered. Furthermore, soon after Romeo meets Juliet at the party, he visits and swears his love towards her, but she believes their relationship “is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden” (II.ii.125) for them to stay in a relationship. Although Romeo and Juliet have known each other for only a few hours, Romeo is determined to take Juliet as his wife, despite of the later consequences. Romeo is not thinking about the feud between Capulet and Montague, but rather satisfying his desire. When Romeo seeks for Friar Lawrence’s help, in terms of the marriage with Juliet, Friar Lawrence warns Romeo that he is moving too fast and claims, “A young men’s love then lies/Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (II.iii.71-72).
It is their deaths that end the conflict between both of their families. But this tragedy had to be someone’s fault. I believe that Romeo is to blame for the deaths of himself and Juliet due to his lack of patience and control of his emotions. Throughout the text Romeo has shown that he has very little ability to control his emotions.
Friar Laurence is to blame because of his devious and secretive nature. First, Friar Laurence agrees to perform a forbidden marriage without Romeo and Juliet’s family’s approval. Friar Laurence states, “In one respect, I’ll thy assistant to be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your household’s rancor to pure love” (Shakespeare 1031). This quote displays Friar Laurence’s devious nature because he had agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet, thinking that it would solve the rivalry between the two families even though it was against who he was, his morals, and his religion. In addition to him simply agreeing to marry the two, Friar Laurence
First of all, the Friar got Romeo and Juliet together though marriage. Shakespeare states in the prologue “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life/ Whose misadventured piteous overthrows/Doth with their death bury their parents' strife,” (Shakespeare Prologue.6-8). Most scholars identify that those lines are explaining that Romeo and Juliet fall in love with each other and become lovers, despite being member of opposite families in the feud.
His father’s sudden death, and his mother’s quick remarry did not help his case. That being said, his emotions lead him to his insanity. Many people claim that Hamlet’s insanity is feigned, but his actions based on things that have happened in the past, prove otherwise. Very shortly after the tragic death of King Hamlet, Gertrude, his wife, immediately remarried to Claudius, making the mourning process quite uncomfortable for Hamlet. Hamlet 's act of stabbing Polonius through the curtain, which occurs almost casually in the middle of the tirade against Gertrude 's lust, seems only to increase his passionate desire to make her see her error in preferring Claudius to her first husband.
Juliet only briefly thinks of the difficulty of the two families coming together, but is then drawn back to Romeo’s convincing suggestion. This situation is one of the fatal mistakes that leads to the death of Romeo, Juliet, and many others. In another instance, Tybalt engaged in a fight with Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend, resulting in Mercutio’s death. Mercutio stepped in to take Romeo’s place unaware of the fact that Romeo was now part of the Capulet family and therefore unwilling to fight Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin. When Mercutio died, instead of thinking about what the consequences might be, Romeo slayed Tybalt instantly.
Romeo and Juliet fell in love within mere seconds, without contemplating the consequences the love may cause. Willing to “Deny thy father and refuse thy name,” Juliet sacrifices her family for the adolescent romance (2.2.37). Passion blinds Juliet from reality, causing her to disregard their family complications. The young love promotes Juliet to risk her family for this young infatuation she possesses with Romeo. Ever since they laid eye’s on one another, Romeo and Juliet continuously formulate careless decisions, such as determining to get married.
Romeo and Juliet are ill-fated lovers from William Shakespeare’s world renowned play – Romeo and Juliet, who are destined to die due to their families’ age-old hatred for one another. From the start, the pair are greatly influenced by other characters, certain events occurring throughout the play and most importantly, personal weakness. It is not the fault of one, but many where the downfall occurred, from Romeo’s impulsivity, Juliet’s obedience and Friar Laurence’s arrogance. Shakespeare’s characterization of Romeo and Juliet causes the downfall upon themselves which involves impulsivity and naivety.
