In Romeo and Juliet I think Friar Lawrence is trying to tell Romeo that this marriage is risky and they need to accept some things how they are. This is kind of sad but for their situation it is good advice. Do I think they will take his advice, no they are not moderate people they are taking a huge risk being together. First off everyone knows who Romeo is so if he changes his name people will still recognize him. Plus he is loosing his family and friends and being threatened by Tybalt for this girl he just barley met.
