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. Furious and devastated, Juliet took a potion that made her appear dead; this was the only way she could be with Romeo. With Romeo being exiled, he heard news of his wife's death and bought poison to kill
For example, when she trusts the Friar to get the information to Romeo. This information never gets to Romeo, which leads him to kill himself. Juliet could have told Romeo about her plan to take the potion and this would have prevented both of their deaths. Another bad decision was the marriage which complicated the already difficult situation. In conclusion Romeo and Juliet both sacrifice their own lives due to a lot of bad choices.
I think Friar Lawrence is to blame for Romeo’s and Juliet’s death because he gave poison married Romeo and Juliet without consent. Some people may disagree because he was trying to help them and didn't know his plan would result in Romeos and Juliet’s
The Friar agreed to secretly marry them, which was not wise. He knew that the marriage would not be right but married them to “turn (their) household’s rancour to pure love.” This action may have been well wishing, but it was wrong to get Romeo and Juliet married. Instead, he should have told the parents. This might have resulted in Romeo and Juliet not meeting again, but it could have also resulted in them eventually getting married. In either case, no-one would have died.
Frontrunners for this distinction are: The Family Feud, the star- crossed lovers were doomed from the start entirely because of their families’ hatred of one another. Fate, because the Prologue suggests this when it calls them "star-crossed lovers" and talks about "their death-mark'd love" Lack of perspective, they were young, and they could not see past their terror of living without each other to make the correct choice and go on living. If they didn’t rush into things, they probably would have ended up together in the end. Love, the love between Romeo and Juliet not only gave them happiness, but it also caused them pain and heartache, and eventually their lives. Impetuousness, if they had only waited then time would have kept them apart and alive.
Friar tells Juliet “Thy husband in the bosom there lies dead” (V.iii.155). He tells her that Romeo has died because he thought she was actually dead and couldn’t stand to be without her. Friar stated, “Miscarried by my fault, let my old life be sacrificed some hour before his time unto the rigor of severest law” (V.iii.267-269). He is explaining to The Capulet’s, Montague’s, and the Prince that he is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence should of told the two star crossed lovers to tell their parents that they were in love with their
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.
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.
Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. It could be said that the person who is responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death is Lord Capulet. After all, he is the one who forced Juliet to marry Paris, which eventually led her to drink the potion and “kill” herself. Lord Capulet was so intent on saving his reputation; he did not realize all the pain he was putting his child through. However, one could also argue that the Nurse is at fault.
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.
