Benvolio suggests that Romeo will move on from his past lover, Rosaline, and find a new girl. When Juliet sees Romeo for the first time as he leaves the Capulet 's party, she asks the nurse to find out information about him. For starters, in the play Juliet says, " Go ask his name._ If he be married, my grave is like to be my wedding bed." Juliet means she will rather die unmarried because she cannot love anyone else. This ironically foreshadows her death if she marries him.
The first reason why Friar Laurence is to blame is because he married Romeo and Juliet. 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).

The catastrophe that occurred at the end of the tragedy “Romeo and Juliet” by Shakespeare was caused by the poor decisions made by the two characters Romeo and Friar Lawrence. First, Romeo 's decision to attend the party at the Capulets and to poison himself after he saw what seemed to be his dead wife was the main reason as to why the catastrophe occurred. Next, Friar Lawrence 's choice to marry Romeo and Juliet the day after they met and to give Juliet a potion that would mimic the look of death so that she would not have to marry Paris lead to the catastrophe at the end of the play. In the fictional novel “The Fault in our Stars” by John Green, two characters known as Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace, fall in love with each other after meeting at a counseling session for cancer patients.

He instructs Juliet to drink the potion and Romeo will be with her after she awakes. However, Friar Laurence was far too impulsive, giving in to Juliet’s begging and giving her a possibly dangerous drug, which even Juliet herself doubted, thinking that maybe the Friar had “subtly hath ministered to have me dead” (4.3.26). to cover up his involvement in the marriage. There are far better ways to avoid marrying Paris and reuniting with Juliet.

To reunite the couple Lawrence gives Juliet a poison that will make her appear dead so that Romeo can return, and take Juliet back to Mantua with him where they will live happily ever after. Since Romeo is in Mantua they have to send him a letter telling him about the plan.
In William Shakespeare’s, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, there is controversy over whether lovers died due to fate or freedom of choice. There is more evidence proving that freedom of choice influenced their death over fate. Benevolilo and Mercutio urge Romeo, Mr. Montague’s son, to meet someone, so that his mind would be distracted from Rosaline, Romeo’s former lover. Romeo decides to go to the party in spite of the servant who told him: “if you be not of the house of/ Montagues, I pray come and crash a cup of wine.”(Shakespeare 385). He found another woman at the party and as he gazed across the room, he voiced: O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!/It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night/As rich a jewel in an Ethip’s ear/Beauty to rich for use, for earth to dear!/So
