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
Nick tags along because he “had nothing better to do” (24) and seems to have little qualms about the fact that Tom is cheating on Daisy openly. As Daisy’s cousin, it is expected that he stands against Tom’s infidelity. However, Nick doesn’t question the situation and even goes on to get as debauched as everyone else at the party. Nick’s “bystander complex” is further cemented when he sneaks out of the party amongst the chaos and spends the rest of it with McKee. Socially, Nick wasn’t in any position that would hinder him from offering to help Myrtle or even to stop Tom from abusing her.

When Goneril and Regan feign to love their father beyond words, they did this to gain their share of the kingdom. The only person who loves without asking anything in return rejects speech, so Cordelia says, “What shall Cordelia speak? Love, and be silent” (Shakespeare 1.1.68). Words are unnecessary for true love that exists in the silence of devoted actions. Likewise, Edmund lies to his father about the letter to gain his trust and ruin Edgar’s reputation.
