Friar Laurence is was an interesting character. He helped the two star-crossed lovers, but was also a reason they both died in the end. Friar Laurence is many different things. I think some things he say in the play kind of shape him. From his background I think he is wise because everyone comes to him for advice and confession. Also when Romeo has fallen out of love with Rosaline and instantly falls in love with Juliet Friar Laurence says “Have you soon forsaken Rosaline, whom you loved so dearly?’ I think this explains that Friar Laurence is wise. He thinks that Romeo may be jumping the gun, because the day before he was in love with Rosaline and was depressed that she didn't love him back.

I also think Friar Laurence is nice and helpful. I can tell by some of his actions and his advice he gives. He told Romeo, when they were talking about marriage, “this marriage could be the happy cause of turning the enmity between your two households into real love.” I think Friar Laurence had a point. Once the two families saw the love between the two children, maybe they would have put their feud behind like they did in the end of the story
