Romeo and Juliet are devastated that they love the enemy: “Prodigious birth of love it is to me, / That I must love a loathed enemy” (1.5.142-144). Romeo and Juliet are supposed to be enemies and are not allowed to see each other. Capulet threatens Juliet to rush her into marrying Paris: “And you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the street, / For, by my soul, I’ll never acknowledge thee” (3.5.194-195). Capulet is harsh on Juliet to marry Paris but Juliet is already married so she feels like she needs to take drastic measures. The Prince tells the families his opinion when Romeo and Juliet are found dead: “Where be these enemies?
The Capulets were the reason Romeo was exiled, thus causing Romeo and Juliet's tragic death. Another cause of their death is influenced by Juliet's own father. He told Juliet that she was to marry a man named Paris. Juliet refused because she loved another man, and because she was secretely married to Romeo. You would think her own father would be understanding of her wishes, but he commanded her to marry Paris or else he would disown her.
Of a despised life closed in my breast. By some vile forfeit of untimely death.” (Act 1, Scene 4, 107) In this scene Romeo had a gut feeling that going to this party would cause his “untimely death.” But, because of his stubbornness he had ignored it, and still went to the Capulet (His enemies’) party where he met Juliet. If he had not attended the party, he wouldn’t have met Juliet and he potentially wouldn’t have died. Later in the play, Balthasar (a servant of Romeo) reveals to Romeo that Juliet is dead. “Hast thou no letters to me from the friar?” (Act 5, 1, 51) Romeo was specifically told to wait for Friar Laurence’s letter, but stubborn Romeo, neglects this advice and decides to head to Mantua anyway.
Once Juliet wakes up she finds Romeo dead, she then stabs herself in the chest. The Capulet’s and Montague’s end the feud. Friar Lawrence’s actions and decisions are the reason for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths because he showed he wasn't the holy man he was supposed to be, He also made very risky plans, and didn't stop to think of the consequences before marrying Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence showed another unholy side to him in some parts of the play. For example he went on and married the two without their parents aware.
Would you think that your mentors would lead to your demise? In William Shakespeare’s “The Tragedy Of Romeo and Juliet,” Friar Lawrence and Nurse caused the infamous couple to die. There are many key examples leading to the two mentors causing these premature deaths that could have been completely avoided. If Friar and Nurse didn’t give bad advice, influences, and ideas then Romeo and Juliet could have grown old together and be happy with each other. With all the things that Friar Lawrence did, none helped the cause with the trouble Romeo had.
Romeo and Juliet wish to get married soon after they meet even though they know their marriage will cause great unrest for both families. Because Juliet wants to marry Romeo and not Paris, she drinks a sedative before she is to marry Paris to make her appear dead so that she may later marry Romeo. However, when Romeo hears that she is dead he becomes hysterical and gets drinks a vial of poison so he could be with her. None of this would have happened if the families could put aside their hate for each other. Similarly, Mercutio and Tybalt hate each other and will take any chance they get to kill the other.
She ran to Friar Lawrence for help and the friar gave her distilling liquor so that she can fake her death. Friar Lawrence had someone send a letter to Romeo that never got delivered, explaining the situation with Juliet. Romeo not knowing about Juliet’s fake death led him to drink poison that he got from Apothecary. When Juliet woke-up, she found Romeo dead on the ground and she was devastated. Friar Lawrence was telling her that they should leave before the guards came and she resisted and he left her.
For instance, they are clueless the whole play of what Juliet is doing and how she feels. Capulet the clueless says to Paris, “Look you, she loved her kinsman Tybalt dearly and so did I” (153). Capulet even thinks that Juliet is stuck morning over the death of her cousin when she is truly morning of the exile of her love. Lady Capulet does not even know her own daughters age. Their oblivion to the whole situation causes a big issue such as the deaths of Romeo in Juliet.
