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.
Imagine a trusted counselor who betrays others by giving terrible advice. In Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, a similar situation occurs among Friar Lawrence, Romeo, and Juliet. The opposition believes that Friar Lawrence would not be responsible and it would be Romeo and Juliet’s fault due to do the several years of the hatred toward the two families. After analyzing all the information, it is Friar Lawrence’s fault for the death and Romeo and Juliet because the Friar constantly left out valuable information that he is supposed to tell Romeo or Juliet. At one point in the play, the Friar decides to turn a simple plan into something complicated that results in both Romeo and Juliet dying.
If Lord Capulet wasn’t forced Juliet’s to get married to Paris, then there won’t be any deaths but instead, there will be understanding and loved. Because of Lord Capulet hatred on the Montague, there’s death of his own daughter. Even though Lord Capulet did nothing to Romeo, he did something very ungrateful to his daughter. He told her to move out if she’s not going to marry Paris and
The Friar left the two to their fatal fate. Some could argue that it was not the Friars fault that he never intentionally meant for any of these bad things to happen, things just didn’t work in his favor. The only alternative person who could be to blamed is Tybalt. Tybalt could be blamed because if he wasn't filled with so much anger, Mercutio may never had died therefore Romeo wouldn’t end up being banished. “Patience perforce with willful choler meeting makes my flesh tremble in their different greetings” (Shakespeare 394).
The Friar thought that marrying the two kids of the feuding houses would help put an end to their parents' fight, "Thy love did read by rote, that could not spell. 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." (Act 2). In this quote, the Friar is thinking that if this couple is to be wed, then the feuding families will put down their swords and pick up champagne bottles instead.
Friar is to blame, not only for one action that contributed to their death, but for three actions. 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
Even if he would have not kept his and Juliet's relationship a secret the outcome would have been better. His own personal desire worked heavily against him. Romeo had decided to pursue his own personal desire and ask the Friar to marry him and Juliet. This was a few days after they had met and he was sure they were meant to be together. The Friar realized how foolish it was, but the only reason he married them was because he thought there was a possibility of this helping to end the feud between their families.
His decisions guide him down a heedless path and we see how it affects the other characters in the book as well. Because of Romeo’s impulsiveness, we see how impulsiveness affects his future, what it does to his family and his lover, Juliet, and finally revealing the final tragedy of the play. Romeo’s impulsiveness reveals how his love story ended up as a tragedy. He always acts without forethought, like when he first met Juliet in Act 1, Scene 5. All Romeo cared about was how he wanted to be with Juliet the rest of his life, and ignored the fact that conflicts may occur because she’s a Capulet.
In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, both protagonist act impetuous, which alters their lives. They act without thinking and forget that there are consequences to their actions. Both Romeo and Juliet hide the fact that they were in love and married from their families. If Romeo and Juliet really love each other they would take their time to get to know each other. They also would talk things through, but they both have their flaws.
Romeo and Juliet have been in the wrong since the day they talked at the Capulet's party. Both households have the knowledge that Prince Escalus is not pleased with the families fighting one another in the streets. However, having an enemy like Tybalt, who is constantly looking for a fight, is challenging. In Document A, it says “Do with their death bury their parents’ strife”, meaning that the only possible way that Romeo and Juliet could escape their parents rage was to take their own lives. If the two families would accept each other instead of fighting, Romeo and Juliet might have had a fair chance at love.
