The plan sounds good at first, but when the slightest mistake happens the plan ends in devastation. I think the Friar acts foolishly because, firstly, he is the one who marries Romeo and Juliet. Since Romeo and Juliet are two children who were married at a young age, it made them unable to make considered decisions. Friar Lawrence's other foolish action is giving Juliet a potion that will put her into a death-like sleep "Take thou this vial, being then in bed, And this distilling liquor drink thou off," He does send a message to Romeo, but it dosnt reach Romeo. The Friar helps Juliet fake her death and fool her parents.
Angela Vicario dishonors her family by marrying another man when she had already slept with another man.

In the Stranger Meursult is condemned to death by the society for not only killing the “Arab” but also for not showing emotions at his mother’s funeral. Women are portrayed as sex symbols in which the reader finds quite devastating.
Romeo misunderstands this and believes Juliet is dead. He then buys a poison for himself and kills himself when Juliet wa playing dead. Juliet wakes up to find Romeo dead and even though Friar Lawrence pleads with her to refrain from killing herself, Juliet stabs herself and dies with Romeo. Friar Lawrence was always in favour of the two lovers and he did his best to bring good to them.

They decide to get married and plan it out. The rising action continues through the marriage, and the separation. Climax - The climax is the inacting of the father’s plan.

It appears that Romeo went down to mourn Juliet inside the Capulet tomb when he encountered Country Paris who was supposed to have wed Juliet last week. The two started a duel with Paris’ servant present at the beginning but ran for help. Before he could come back the duel had ended with the death of Paris. “I knew the fight would end with a death again so I ran for help…but I was too late” said Paris’ dejected servant. It is thought that Romeo then saw Juliet lying inert on the tomb from the effects of a sleeping death potion, he thought her to be dead and in a blind fit
After Romeo is banished from Verona, Friar Laurence helps Juliet come up with a plan for her not to marry Paris. This plan consists of Juliet faking her death, so her sweet, love Romeo can find her in the Capulet’s tomb. However, if Friar Laurence didn’t mention the plan to Juliet, she would have save anyone from any heartbreak or death. Also Friar Laurence says, “Saint Francis be my speed! how oft to-night/ Have my feet stumbled at graves.” (5.3.121-122) This shows that Friar Laurence was being slowed down by graves in a tomb.
Fate made Capulet’s servant illiterate and he had to ask Romeo to read the invitations. Also, fate played a role in quarantining Friar John’s house so he could not deliver Friar Lawrence’s letter. Without receiving the Friar’s letter and hearing about Juliet’s “death”, Romeo goes and kills himself with the poor apothecary’s poison. Then, only a second or two passes until Juliet wakes up and kills herself. In The Chosen, fate
If he never went to go see her then they wouldn’t have gotten married, and they would both be alive. Also, Romeo bought the poison from the Apothecary, without taking the time to think things thorough, just because he was told Juliet was allegedly “dead.” “I do beseech you, sir, have patience. Your looks are pale and wild and do import Some misadventure.”(5.1.27-29) Even Balthasar tried to talk some common sense into him, but Romeo wouldn’t listen to him. Furthermore, he killed himself, and it wasn’t because he didn’t have another choice. In the end when it came to the decision of killing himself Romeo was the one who chose to drink the poison.
Friar was also the person who orchestrated the plan to fake the death of Juliet. This plan failed miserably and caused the death of the two lovers. Another character that fate influenced was the Nurse. The Nurse was the first person to be notified of the relationship between Romeo and Juliet and she could have easily stopped the marriage. Another example is Tybalt’s death, which resulted in the wedding of Paris and Juliet to be planned earlier and resulted in Romeo’s banishment from Verona.
However, Friar Lawrence is more responsible than Tybalt for the deaths of our “star cross’d lovers” because he allowed Romeo and Juliet marry and it caused Romeo to avoid the fight at first with Tybalt, than later tried to stop the fight between Tybalt and Mercutio and caused Mercutio to get killed by Tybalt. Friar Lawrence also made a potion for Juliet to fake her death to let her see Romeo, but he failed to get the note to Romeo and Romeo didn’t know Juliet’s death was fake, so he ended up committing suicide and so did Juliet. Friar Lawrence never told anyone about Juliet’s death being fake. “So smile the heavens upon this holy act that after-hours with sorrow chide us not.” This was when Friar Lawrence agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet. It lead to them dying for each other’s love, when this could have been prevented if they weren’t married.
