In the tomb he says, “Stay not to question, for the watch is coming; come, go, good Juliet. I dare not stay longer. ”(5.3.158-159). Instead of staying with her, he was afraid of the consequence if he was caught there, so he fled and soon after he fled Juliet sacrificed herself to be with Romeo. If Friar Lawrence had stayed with Juliet and not have been scared over the consequence, Juliet could have
Romeo was furious that Tybalt had killed one of his best friends, so he decided to jump in. However, The Montagues and Capulets aren't supposed to brawl in the public, so Romeo got banished from Verona because of his behavior. He blames the killing of Tybalt on fate because he believed it was “destined to happen” even though it was Romeo’s decision to continue the violence. Similarly, at the beginning of the play, once Juliet laid eyes on Romeo, she wanted to marry him. She directs the nurse to go find out Romeo’s identity and if he had a wife.
However, Romeo does not know that and therefore is going to Juliet’s tomb to kill himself with her. This creates a very suspenseful tone because all of the audience still wants Romeo and Juliet to live, even though the audience was told from the beginning that they were not going to win. Therefore suspense is all around because nobody wants Romeo to kill himself and everyone is just waiting for Juliet to wake up. Shakespeare also uses this dramatic irony when Romeo is saying that Juliet is the “Paramour” of death, meaning she is having an affair with death. Romeo is only saying this because of how well he thinks death is treating her and her looks.
Capulet makes an offer to Paris; “Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender / Of my child’s love. I think she will be ruled / In all respects by me; nay, more, I doubt it not. / Wife, go you to ere you go to bed; / Acquaint her here of my son Paris’s love (3.4.12-16). This quotation shows that Capulet is taking Juliet’s feelings into consideration and thinks that marrying Juliet to Paris will cheer her up after Tybalt’s death.
Miscommunication in Romeo and Juliet Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Every violation of truth is not only a sort of suicide in the liar, but is a stab at the health of human society” (The Best Quotes About Lies and Lying). People in this world lie all the time because they think that they are helping instead of telling the truth. When the truth comes out in the society people are more hurt than if a person just told the truth instead of lying. In William Shakespeare's, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet die from miscommunication between the characters, not fate.
Just thinking about someone falling in love and killing themselves at the age of 13 is just stupid to me. The Friar wasn’t strict enough to say no and the Capulets were too strict to let Juliet live her life with Romeo. If there is one thing I have learned from this story, it’s that you always want to meet your other half 's family. Especially once you
“A mentor to both Romeo and Juliet, Friar Laurence constantly advises them to act with more caution and moderation, even though he doesn't wait too long before agreeing to marry off these two crazy kids.” (Shmoop.com). Friar’s attempt to make the main characters happy by marrying them, in the end, turned the story into a tragedy. Another very important relationship in the book is between the Nurse and Juliet. The Nurse tries to help Juliet by going to talk to Romeo about the upcoming wedding, instead she takes forever and makes Juliet very nervous.
Nurse should be punished. Nurse should be punished because she knew that Romeo and Juliet were married and she didn’t tell anybody about it, so that caused all of this to happen. “Is your man secret? Did you ne'er hear say, Two may keep counsel, putting one away?” (1.4.1).This shows that she new about the marriage and because of that, she should be punished because she caused Romeo and Juliet to kill herself.
Juliet wanted to be with Romeo and she would stop at nothing to get him so she went and talked to Friar Lawrence to get a poison that would make her seem dead so she wouldn’t have to marry Paris. Juliet could have just left and been with Romeo there is no difference between her faking her death and leaving. Juliet could have made better choices, but she was too young and hadn’t known any better.
Romeo and Juliet’s love cannot apart from their two feuding families that lead to their fatal passing in the end. Many people were responsible for their death, as it portrays through out the play. Although, Friar Lawrence is the main person to blame. In William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” Friar Lawrence is responsible for the tragedy of two star crossed lovers for the following reasons, he is easily persuaded, he is irresponsible and is selfish. Friar Lawrence is easily persuaded without thinking in the risks involved.
Nothing is worse than being betrayed by the person that was strongly trusted or loved. Betraying someone that was strongly trusted or loved, can cause the bad choices to lead to bad situations. In William Shakespeare's famous " Romeo& Juliet", there were betrayals that were caused from all different situations and people. Shakespeare's "Romeo & Juliet" shows how betrayal could cause the same person to be betrayed in the end. In this situation Paris, Capulet, and Juliet were all betrayed by someone.
Looking around a highschool classroom and studying the faces of the students. Wondering about the choices they have made, universal choices that will permanently affect them and their future, like ripples on the water of a usually still lake. Contemplating where they would be if previous decisions had been decided in a different manner, curious of where and who they would be. The decisions that they have previously made will continue to ripple and affect their lives. It truthfully really leaves a person to wonder, why humans are unable to base decisions off of other people’s mistakes whether fictional or real.

Either thou or I, or both, must go with him” (3.1.129-136).
