Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
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.
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
For example when she fell in love with Romeo knowing that he was a Montague and that the Capulets and the Montagues were enemies. She knew it was wrong and even then she said… “Thy Purpose marriage, send me word To-morrow”(Act: II Si), she proposes, knowing that he was a Montague and a family enemy. Juliet should have told her parents that she was married to Romeo when her parents told her she was to marry Paris. Her parents would have no option but to let them be together. Both her and Romeo were blinded to everything except each other and did not think before doing, for example, Juliet should have ensured that Romeo found out her plan, before she did it.
If Friar didn’t marry them it would of not started the chain reactions of events that occur next. The play ends with three tragic deaths; those including being Romeo and Juliet. Friar Laurence is mostly to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet, because of he did things in secret, not communicating clearly, and not executing his plans. The first reason why Friar Laurence is to blame is because he married Romeo and Juliet.
“The blame Game” If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty. Friar laurence was responsible for marrying Romeo and Juliet. The nurse and them three was the only one’s that knew about it. If they wouldn’t have never kept the marriage a secret the prince wouldn’t have Romeo banned from the town and Romeo and Juliet could’ve lived happily ever after.
The reason that this marriage was so bad was because Romeo and Juliet were both very young to get married and Romeo was not very mature. Secondly, the friar regrets marrying the two and says, "These violent delights have violent ends / And in their triumph die, like fire and powder" (Act II Scene VI lines 9-10). This quote proves why this was a bad decision to marry the
¨For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo¨. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is a story of two lovers who take their life all because of a misunderstanding. However, who is to blame for their tragic demise? The parents who made the two lovers feel like outcasts must be to blame. The Capulets forced Juliet to marry Paris, the constant fighting made them want to keep the marriage secret, and made Romeo and Juliet to scared to say anything.
Friar Lawrence’s first mistake was allowing Romeo and Juliet to be able to be married so quickly without thinking it through. The Friar had intentions hoping that if he married Romeo and Juliet, it may save the family feud and put it past the families. In the play Friar Lawrence
So he agreed to marry them because he wanted the Capulet and Montague fights to end as well. His intentions were to have a letter sent to Romeo so he would know that Juliet wasn’t actually dead. The letter never reached Romeo, but I don’t think it was Friar Johns fault because he wanted them to get married in the first place to bring the families together to end the feud. On the other hand I think that Lady Capulet should be punished for being so hard on Juliet and trying to force her to marry Paris. Especially when she didn’t like Paris
Rush Things? NO WAY! Imagine two families hate each other and only two people, Romeo and Juliet can end the feud between the families, but the plan to end the feud ends up backfiring, killing six of the family members including Romeo and Juliets. Because of this reason the theme of Romeo and Juliet is do not rush things too fast or there will be consequences in the future. This is shown throughout Romeo and Juliet rushing their marriage causing their deaths.
The play Romeo and Juliet, which was written by William Shakespeare, is one of the most well-known love stories ever. Romeo and Juliet has many characters and all of them are crucial to the plot, however, one character in the story is very crucial. This character is Friar Lawrence. Friar Lawrence helps Romeo and Juliet through their hard times, by being supportive about Romeo and Juliet’s relationship, knowledgeable about many topics, and caring about the families and their feuds.
In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence’s insensibility causes him to give Romeo and Juliet rash advice, leading to the pair of star-crossed lovers’ ultimate doom. When Romeo seeks advice from Friar Lawrence in hopes that he can marry him with Juliet, the Friar agrees, in hope of “[turning the] households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3.99). However, as an adult, and as a man that others seek for help, Friar Lawrence should have put more thought into the different ways the families could react by the marriage. The Friar should have realized that there was a big possibility that the Capulets and Montagues would be angered by the wedding. Instead, he makes his decisions upon the improbable idea of reconcilement through marriage.
