“Hold, daughter, I do spy a kind of hope, / Which craves as desperate an execution / As that is desperate which we would prevent (4.1.69-71). And again the Friar tosses around very serious topics with little understanding of what he is causing. He is proposing to the terrified and distressed Juliet to fake her death and then forget about her family, friends, and city, to run off with Romeo whom she met only a few days
The death of the star crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet was caused by Friar Lawrence. He is responsible because he came up with the plan for Juliet to have a fake death. Friar Lawrence convinces her to do this when he says, “Take thou this vial, being then in bed, And this distilling liquor drink thou off; when presently through all the veins shall run a cold and drowsy humor; for no pulse,” (Romeo and Juliet VI, scene i, 93-96). He tells her to take the medicine and it makes everyone believe that she is dead. Romeo finds out she is “dead” and comes to see her.
Romeo, in an act of revenge, kills Tybalt. The Prince, trying to maintain peace, banished Romeo from Verona. The Nurse brought the news to Juliet “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that killed him, he is banished” (Romeo and Juliet 2. 2. 69-70 ) This made Juliet miserable over Romeo's banishment, meanwhile her parents thought her unhappiness was over Tybalt's death.
He warned Romeo that “violent delights have violent ends and in their triumph die, fire and powder, which as they kiss, consume.” (2:6:9-11).

However, he continued on to marry them, believing that their marriage would stop their parents’ feud. In addition, Friar Lawrence gave Juliet the idea of faking her death and saying, “…take thou this vial, being then in bed…” (4:5:93). He suggested the plan of killing herself, which led to Romeo committing suicide due to the death of Juliet.
This acted as a warning that Desdemona should never have become involved with such a “Moor”. He was warning his daughter of the unnatural. However, Desdemona went against his wishes and married Othello, the true love of her life. Brabantio saw how this marriage was going to eventually end. This unnatural union ended in Desdemona’s murder,
The Betrayal of the Only Child In Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, two young lovers, Romeo and Juliet, from rivalling families must hide their love for each other, or face the wrath of their parents. Throughout the play, many characters are subject to a betrayal, or betray someone or something else. For example, Friar Lawrence betrays his duty as a priest in Verona by marrying Romeo and Juliet, and Tybalt betrays Lord Capulet by hunting Romeo. However, the most significant betrayal in the play is Lord and Lady Capulet's betrayal of Juliet by forcing her to marry Paris, and completely disregarding her wants. This betrayal hurt Juliet in many ways, and it hurt her parents a little too, as this would soon lead to her death.
And once Romeo discovered her without knowing she was really alive, he didn’t see much point living without her and ended his life. Shakespeare orchestrated the story and made it that fate would unavoidably kill the two
(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another.
