Once again Reddit's bringing the interesting conversation, this time on an old Romeo and Juliet question:
Where do you stand on Friar Laurence? Is he to be completely forgiven? A character who tried to do the right thing, for all the right reasons, and it just didn't work out? Or does he share in the blame for bringing it all down upon their heads? After all, what would have happened had he not married Romeo and Juliet? Romeo had already shown that he was pretty fickle in the love department. Nobody was dead at this point, nobody banished. Would they both have just gotten over it? Romeo's impulsiveness could have been cut off at the pass real quick if Friar Laurence hadn't enabled it.
