Romeo and Juliet both suicide after seeing each other dead. After Romeo hears about Juliet’s death, he goes to her tomb to see her one last time and kiss her before he suicides. “Here’s to my love. O true apothecary,/Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die”(V.iii.119-120). Romeo should have overlooked his quick thoughts of suicide, and should have realized how much he still had to live for. The aftermath of this action was that both Romeo and Juliet both end up dead in the final tragedy. After Juliet sees Romeo dead, she decides to kill herself with a dagger. “Yea, noise? Then I’ll be brief. O, happy dagger,/This is thy sheath. There rust, and let me die”(V.iii.174-175). This evidence is an example of the consequences that can occur after a hasty, sad-driven decision. If Romeo did not suicide while under the influence of his emotions, both Romeo and Juliet would have lived, and the ultimate, final tragedy of the play would have been avoided, but instead, Romeo’s emotions misguided him to choose the awful decision of suicide. These actions reveal how quickly sadness leads to horrendous repercussions due to the actions that it

This forbidden love and hasteful relationship ultimately leads to the demise of both Romeo and Juliet as well as many others throughout the play. The motif of haste in The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is developed by the act of foreshadowing and the use of imagery to convey how hasteful actions can lead to one's demise.
It is while growing up that children and teens are most vulnerable. Because they lack life experience, foresight, and the ability to think clearly, young people often make decisions that are unwise and even downright harmful to them or others. This lack of maturity and its consequences is demonstrated in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, where teens’ poor decisions lead to the deaths of many. The play’s tragic end is not the result of deliberate malicious actions, but rather the consequence of the emotional, untamed impulsivity of the play’s younger characters. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the reader experiences how the impulsive nature of the youth results in them making poor decisions that can end in tragedy.
Romeo wants revenge and fights with Tybalt. In this fight, Romeo kills Tybalt. When Romeo realizes the consequences of his actions, he says that he is “Fortune’s fool” (3.1.142). He believes that he has no control over the killings of Mercutio and Tybalt. However, these events are caused by his own rashness. Romeo chooses to fight with Tybalt and even starts the fight. Romeo fights to avenge his friend’s death. Romeo’s actions are rash because he does not consider the results of his actions. Romeo could resolve the conflict in some nonviolent way, but his mind is fixed on killing Tybalt. Romeo is exiled from Verona because he kills Tybalt. His rashness causes problems for his own family as well as for the Capulets and for the Prince. Romeo’s rashness in killing Tybalt leads to his killing himself.
Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. Both Romeo and Juliet are young and sprightly teenagers, Romeo being 15-16 and Juliet with the age of 13. They are teens that make impulsive decisions without thinking about the consequences. David Dobbs the author of the article “Beautiful Brains” explains why teenagers act the way they do throughout scientific research and studies. This article helps to understand Romeos and Juliets actions which led to their deaths.
Romeo led several people to their defeat because of the irrational choices that he made. He speaks boldly, but when he comes to action, he behaves like a coward. When he was challenged by Tybalt, the Prince of Cats, he refused to fight, therefore ending his best friend’s life, Mercutio. His quick actions overcome his words and the situation mostly concludes with failure. In Romeo and Juliet, Romeo made a rash and desperate decision to fall into love with Juliet resulting in death and sorrow.
Didn’t Elvis say it best when ever he said, “Wise men say only fools rush into love”. This idea is expressed throughout the world because so many mistakes are made whenever people rush into love. It seems as though love has a powerful hold on people and they just can’t help what they do once they are in love. It is as if they are almost blind to everything else around them, and also blind to the consequences that might come from their choices that they make. Teenagers seem to be more at risk for such frivolous love due to the fact they have lived such ephemeral lives. Since teen brains are not fully developed it can lead to fickle or poor decision making, and sometimes leads to making choices that result in teen pregnancy. Poor decision
In contrast, Mercutio attempts to stop Tybalt’s thirst for vengeance when he tries to duel Romeo but ultimately gets killed in the process of trying to save his good friend from being killed by Tybalt which causes Romeo to take vengeance upon Tybalt by killing him.
In William Shakespeare’s tragic play Romeo and Juliet, a tale of two star-crossed lovers fall victim to their family’s rivalry. Romeo’s love for Juliet clouded his common sense, and made him act too swiftly on his decisions which caused tragedy. Romeo’s impulsive behavior which he learned from his family in the rivalry, negatively affects three characters in the play. Romeo’s emotionally decided decisions caused the death of Mercutio, Tybalt, Juliet, and himself.
Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo exhibits behaviour that could be interpreted as impulsive. He easily and shamelessly dates women, mourning when he is rejected. His unrequited love with Rosaline sends Romeo into a depression, only to be lifted by Juliet, whom he falls in love with instantaneously. This causes skepticism of Romeo’s love, and he is even questioned by Friar Lawrence, who claims that love is not as lenient as to allow Romeo to use women so frequently. Furthermore, Romeo is not in love with Juliet, but rather in lust, and his infatuation with her will ebb away, despite expressing his fondness of Juliet, and even promising to marry her, because his reason for being with her relies on Juliet’s appearance, her lack of experience, and his avidity to have a significant other.
“Sometimes it's a good idea to think about what you want from a situation, and try to get it, rather than just blurt out the first thing that comes into your head.” (Lockhart). This situation happens to people much too often, especially to teens. Although many teenagers are considered adults, Shakespeare’s Romeo And Juliet and contemporary societal examples demonstrate that, instead, teenagers too often make impulsive decisions without always thinking about the consequences that follow up. But why do teens make these impulsive decisions than any other age group?
Romeo and Juliet Do you believe in love at first sight? Do you think it is okay to rush into a marriage after only a few days? These are things to consider when reading Romeo and Juliet. In this story the two main characters Romeo and Juliet fall in love at a party and get married days later.
Leaving his home to see Juliet an act out of passion, it also conflicted all of the reasoning that was in place before. It was a sin to kill yourself, as was it to bribe someone; as Romeo bribed the apothecary to sell him poison. The series of passionate decisions also made him rebel against the laws of the city of Verona after banishment; the fact that he was not allowed to return for any reason. Ignoring all the rules, Romeo went to Juliet’s grave out of passion and killed himself at her grave out of the belief that Juliet was indeed dead. Juliet, acting out of her own passion killed herself after seeing Romeo on the floor next to her
In the text it states, “If that thy bent of love be honorable, thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow, by one that I’ll procure to come to thee…” (Shakespeare 407; act 2). This text stating Romeo and Juliet’s hasty marriage to each other, also, shows the immaturity of Romeo and Juliet’s so called true love. Much like young children, they hope to be wed immediately, and in this case, after knowing each other for what can be only a few hours and loving each other for even less. Not only this, but the point still stands, Romeo and Juliet both took their own lives (“The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet”). Romeo and his need for the dramatic leads him to poison himself in order to be with his true love, the so called deceased Juliet. Furthermore, after Juliet wakes from her slumber, she sees Romeo’s lifeless corpse, and, then, decides to follow in his footsteps by taking her own life with his blade. Surely, they did not need to take such drastic actions so quickly, but, of course, they did, for their melodramatic emotions could be held back no
Firstly, Romeo and Juliet worked rashly rushing the crucial act of marriage for their love. Unfortunately, this was a thoughtless mistake that engendered a horrible outcome. Had Romeo and Juliet taken time to develop their feelings for each other, the deaths of themselves and of Paris would have been prevented as Juliet would have no problem marrying Paris. A robust relationship should take years to develop. Nonetheless, Romeo and Juliet were ready to kill themselves for each other after meeting only a few days later. After Romeo and Juliet first saw each other, one of the first things asserted between them was, “my lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand/to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.”(I,v, 95-96). Romeo and Juliet had just met each other yet only seconds later Romeo was already expressing his love, saying that his lips are ready to kiss her. Another piece of evidence is that later
