After Romeo soon learns about his banishment, he is told by Friar Laurence to go visit Juliet one last time; he responds by saying “It were a grief so brief to part with thee. Farewell.” (3.3.192-193). Thoughtless and stubborn, even though his “undying love” for Juliet affects him, Romeo does not realize that going to Juliet’s house can lead to dire consequences. To avoid these consequences, he could have left Verona immediately. During a tremendous argument between Juliet and her mother, Lady Capulet claims that Juliet must marry Paris, an innocent, charming man who wants to marry her, but she refuses and shouts, “ He shall not make me there a joyful bride…I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear it shall be Romeo” (3.5.132-137).

Providence manipulates Romeo to leap over the orchard wall and proclaim his love for Juliet. “It is my lady, O it is my love.” (Act 1 sc 2 ll 10) Providence manipulates circumstances to ensure the lovers meet under Juliet’s balcony, thus, quickening their proclamation of love.

Two star-crossed lovers go against their parent’s will since Juliet’s cousin is now dead and Romeo dreams that he should not go to the party, with that he ends up taking his own life.
