In addition, Friar Lawrence marries Romeo and Juliet without even thinking of the consequences that the marriage will bring; he just does it in hopes that “this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3. 98-99). Friar Lawrence may have good intentions in mind, but his actions played a heavy role in the whole tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Devising a risky and poorly thought out plan exemplifies one of the many mistakes made by Friar Lawrence, which led to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.

While some may argue that Friar Laurence is the cause of Romeo and Juliet's death, Fate is actually to blame. This is shown clearly at the beginning of the play with the mention of "star-crossed lovers," as well as throughout the play with references to "fortune" or "stars."

As we can see, the impact of the families’ feud has lead to Tybalt’s hatred against Romeo (and all Montagues), and leads to the death of Mercutio, which in terms lead us to the advent of tragedy.

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, is a famous tragic love story that bases on a young couple from the rival families, the Montagues, and the Capulets, in which the death of the young couple finally end the ‘ancient grudge’ between the two families. Their result of death is believed to be cause mostly by the fate, which brings them closer and closer to their inevitable destiny, death. In many places in the play Shakespeare also uses words like ‘fortune’, ‘sail’, ‘stars’ to reveal that fate and destiny, are the main elements in the play that causes their untimely death. In the Prologue, it is mentioned that’ A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life’ (l.6), which outlines the destinies of both Romeo and Juliet, and is already ‘written on the stars’. This means they have no power on their own lives, and fate is against them, also it tells the audiences that they are doomed, ever since they meet.
Urban Dictionary defines hate as “to dislike intensely or passionately”. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, hate is the most responsible for the events that take place during the play. The hatred between the Capulets and the Montagues causes Romeo’s and Juliet’s death which proves that hate is a more powerful emotion than love. The hatred between the two families, the Montagues and the Capulets make Romeo and Juliet love each other so much that they kill themselves. Juliet meets Romeo at the Capulet ball and falls in love with him.
Although fate played a significant role in the star-crossed lovers' downfall, Romeo and Juliet paid the consequences of their dreadful decisions due to their reckless rebellion which eventually led to their catastrophic ending. In the first few events that happened in the play, the readers have already seen some poor choices Romeo and Juliet made that eventually led to their death. After Romeo learned that Juliet is a Capulet, an enemy of his family, he still chose to go back to the Capulet's house after the party hoping to see a glimpse of her as he asked himself "Can I go forward when my heart is [in the Capulet's]?" (II.i.1-2). Romeo's words reveal that he found the love of his life.
In William Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet had many issues leading towards Romeo and Juliet to commit suicide towards the end of the play. When blaming someone it means responsibility for something that is wrong or deserving censure. Accordingly, Friar Lawrence is openly accountable for Romeo and Juliet’s death. With this intention, he does not make one, but three faults that direct to their death. In particular, he marries Romeo and Juliet, he depended upon Friar John with a letter of essential information to be delivered to Romeo, and he took off when Juliet was in jeopardy at the tomb.

Furthermore, the two star-crossed lovers undergo a catastrophe at the end of the tragedy, where the characters meet a tragic and horrendous death. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a true Aristotelian tragedy because both Romeo and Juliet possess a tragic flaw, a catastrophe takes place in which both characters meet a tragic death, and the audience is aroused with pity and fear.
Then out of this hate comes a 'pair of star-crossed lovers' to 'take their lives.' This tragedy of Romeo and Juliet seems unstoppable right from the start.
