The Friar helps Juliet fake her death and fool her parents. Although the Friar's intentions were good, the end resulted badly because he thought that if Romeo and Juliet were married, it might help to reunite the two families. "Till holy church incorporate two in one." The Nurse is
The frustration and stubbornness of Juliet created angst with Nurse, she only wanted what was best for Juliet, and Paris was. So Juliet’s ignorance created a situation amongst her love ones, one that she would have surely expected them to respond in that way given the situation at hand. So blame can’t be shifted to her closes family member and she was always the one prompting a reaction. Undoubtedly, Romeo is mostly to blame for this and even more so
This was mostly due to poor timing and bad luck when it came to his plans. In his attempt to save Romeo and Juliet’s relationship he ended up killing them both. Nurse did the same by helping Juliet get into the whole relationship in the first place, then once again when she turned Juliet down when she asked for help to get out of marrying Paris. Nurse was just trying to do what was best for Juliet; but this time Nurse was wrong. Prince Escalus, unlike Nurse and Friar Lawrence didn’t affect the tragedy so directly.
Friar Lawrence, in this play, helps Romeo to fulfill his desires of marrying Juliet and always has good intentions for Romeo. In the second act, Romeo was in a hurry to marry Juliet, and he pleads with the Friar to conduct their marriage as Romeo was in "haste". Friar Lawrence agrees to this plea, in the hope that the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues would end and that the marriage will bring the families to make peace with each other. However, his intentions are destroyed when Romeo and Juliet commit suicide for each other and die because of their sworn love for each other. This is because in the play, Juliet refused to marry Paris and so the Friar offers his help again and gives her a special potion that makes her appear dead.
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.
Juliet's parents call her crazy for talking this way. Yet Capulet calls her mean names and says that she will marry Paris. The Nurse takes up for Juliet and they get into an argument. Capulet says she will marry Paris and says that is final. Juliet asks for pity but it is not given.

In what way is the Nurse different after the announcement of the marriage arranged between Juliet and Paris?
This quote is a paradox because while reading this the reader can apprehend that the unintended meeting was not as bad as it should have been. The one thing that is keeping the true lovers apart is the family feud (Montague’s and the Capulet’s) that’s been going on for many years. But Romeo and Juliet don’t care and later on they go against their families and get married. Tybat (Juliet’s cousin) was killed and Juliet’s parents think that it was the reason she committed suicide. As soon as the nurse finds out that Tybalt is dead her reaction is very troubling and she doesn’t exactly know how to break it to Juliet so at the end result she says, “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that kill’d him, he is banished.” (3.2.69-70).
Her love for Romeo was filled with violence, showing that they were never meant to be together. Later, the Friar gave her a potion that would put her in a death-like sleep, so she and Romeo could meet and run away together. The time before she killed herself, she kept the idea of killing herself with the knife as a second option in case the potion did not work out. Her holding the knife first expressed that the potion would in fact not work, and she would kill herself. The knife was destined to be how she killed herself.
