Friar Laurence does not know Juliet is taking the potion a day early, therefore he does not tell Romeo about the plan in time. So when Romeo sees her, he actually thinks she is dead, and has no clue about the potion. Had she planned things out better and taken her time, things would have ended up differently. Friar Laurence supporting Romeo and Juliet in pursuit of their marriage and all their other plans is another example of human error. Friar Laurence, being an adult, should have saw things were getting out of hand, and should have let Romeo and Juliet’s parents know what was going on.
“Romeo is banned from Verona, which leads to him to seek out some pretty bad advice and guidance from Friar Laurence.” (Shmoop.com). The news Romeo receives is that Juliet is dead and in the Capulet's tomb Romeo does not know abou the fact he is supposed to be at Juliet's side when she wakes. Romeo is not aware of Juliet and Friar Lawrence's plan with the potion so in turn he takes his own life thinking Juliet is really dead. When Juliet wakes she finds Romeo dead next to her, she takes Romeo's dagger and stabbed it into her chest killing herself. She had taken to the potion to be reunited with Romeo and that hope is all ripped away the second she find Romeo dead next to her.
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

Many people think the story of Romeo and Juliet is just a lovey, dovey, romantic play, but what they don’t know is that it is filled with violence, darkness, and guilt. Throughout the play, rules are broken, many secrets are kept, and the lives of loved ones are taken. We all know that this story ends in the death of two star crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, but how did this happen? Romeo’s tragic downfall was caused by his mistake of getting in between Tybalt and Mercutio’s argument. Romeo’s tragic mistake begins with him arriving to the scene, finding his best friend Mercutio arguing with a Capulet, Tybalt.
So the friar gave her a potion that would fake her death, and she’d be asleep for two days. He’d tell Romeo that she is faking and they would meet and run away. But Romeo never got the letter, but he did get news that she was “dead”. So he ran there and killed himself, when Juliet woke up to find Romeo dead she really killed herself. So if the feud wasn’t there then Tybalt wouldn’t have died, Romeo wouldn’t have been banished, and Juliet would never had to go to the friar.
In lines such as “From ancient grudge break to new mutiny...A pair of starcross'd lovers take their life; whose misadventured piteous overthrows do with their death bury their parents' strife” the reader is told how the fate for Romeo and Juliet is mapped out from the start (ROM. Prologue.114). Since it is clear that fate is present, one must ask if it is a non threatening force or an inevitable one. It seems as though it a mixture of both, fate is clearly something that is unavoidable, but seems only somewhat imposing from certain standpoints nonetheless. Throughout the play, fate presents itself in different situations, many times preventing the couple from being together.
Why Their Relationship Ended; Romeo and Juliet: In what ways might foolishness be a factor in a relationship? Most relationships have both positive and negative moments, but how often do people consider what drives their relationship? It can be many things like love, personality, looks or even hair. Essentially, Romeo and Juliet is a story full of hate and love. Of course, there are many moments of foolishness in their relationship, but it still plays a huge part in the plot.
However, Romeo wouldn’t have bought the poison and tried to kill himself if he had received the letter that Friar John was supposed to deliver. Friar John should have delivered the letter, but he could not because, “Finding him, the searchers of the town, Suspecting that we both were in a house where the infectious pestilence did reign, Sealed up the doors and would not let us forth”(Fri John.5.2.8-11). If Friar John had focused on delivering that letter instead of waiting for his friend who was stuck in quarantine, he could have gotten the job done with ease. That letter was of great importance and if he had just went without delay straight to Romeo instead of stopping to wait for his friend he would have gotten the letter to Romeo in time and Romeo and Juliet would have not died. Therefore the deaths of Romeo and Juliet is Friar John’s fault.
