In The Tragedy Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Romeo demonstrates impetuous qualities that lead to his eventual suicide. Romeo is infatuated with Rosaline and becomes deeply depressed with her decision to become a nun. Romeo vacillates emotionally from Rosaline to Juliet, the daughter of a feuding family. Romeo’s impulsiveness is best exhibited through his unrequited love for Rosaline which leaves him predisposed to easily fall in love with Juliet. Hours after their introduction they fall in love, therefore reflecting the capriciousness of love and the intoxicating nature it has that causes him to make rash and illogical decisions.
When in love with someone you have an intense emotional connection and you feel like you would do anything for them, then if that loved one dies you feel a terrible sadness.

However if Romeo was not irrational and impulsive he would have never found or experienced true love and the bitter feud between the Montague's and Capulet's would persist.
The Disasters of Love Love: the most splendid, indescribable, intense euphoric feeling for someone or thing. Young love can cause one to act and think irrationally; as if love had a magical power over ones body and mind. In William Shakespeare’s tragic playwright, Romeo and Juliet, two lovers cross paths set out for them by fate; Although all odds are against them because of a bitter, ongoing family feud, Romeo and Juliet recklessly go against their parent’s will and risk it all for love. Love often results in poor decision-making. Throughout the story, Romeo and Juliet conduct themselves in such a manner that is considered reckless.
/ Griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast, / which thou wilt propagate to have it pressed with more of thine” (Shakespeare1.1.179-182). Romeo is saying that it is so hard to be in love with Rosaline; he is so much in love with her but there are so many reasons why he cannot see her and be with her. All he can think about is Rosaline, but because she has no intentions in ever being with Romeo. He is heartbroken and does not think he will love anyone ever again. In addition, Romeo goes to a masquerade ball in order to see Rosaline but instead meets Juliet and falls
Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet, are willing to do anything for love and will put their trust in fate. Romeo and Juliet demonstrate that the recipe for love runs less smoothly than expected by threats, posed by Lord Capulet towards Juliet to marry Paris, by Romeo’s banishment for killing Tybalt, and the lack of communication, in the form of a letter, which in the end, tragically results in the death of the two lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Love becomes a recipe of disaster as Lord Capulet enrages and threatens his daughter to engage in artificial love. Lord Capulet elaborates and assumes it would be a marvelous idea for Juliet to marry Paris in order for her to disremember the grief of her deceased cousin, Tybalt. Since Juliet is already married to Romeo secretly by law and has no affections or feelings for Paris, she neglects her father’s offer and selflessly says, “not proud you have, but thankful that you have.
Romeo and Juliet’s spring of blind love quickly deepens and causes them to face situation that they have never faced before. They do not know how to handle their bizarre complications, as the story takes a quick, unpredicted turn and turns into a nightmare for them. Romeo and Juliet are forced to make rash decisions one after the other and do not consider the possible solutions other than suicide, causing them to look up to suicide as their only hope. Their bizarre complications are caused by their blind, immature, and excessive love and their act of taking their own lives is also caused by immaturity, idolatry for each other, and the shortness of time. Romeo and Juliet suicide at the end of the story, due to the shortness of time and the extremity of their love; they believe that they have no other options, other than suicide.
This quote that Friar Lawrence states planted into the readers mind that Romeo might not be truly in love but rather infatuated. This tragic play takes place in fair Verona where a quarrel between two families takes place due to an ancient grudge. Both families, Montague and Capulet hate each other with a great passion. Two lovers named Romeo and Juliet are both from the two opposing families and they love and marry each other in secret without their families knowing. Because of their impulsiveness and rash decisions it causes them to lead themselves to die a tragic death.
“For never was a story of more woe/Than this of Juliet and her Romeo” (V.III.309-310). Love and hate has a major part in the play Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, as the Montagues and Capulets hate for each other makes Romeo and Juliet’s love only stronger while causing the families to lose loved ones over nothing. For example, Romeo falling out of love then back into love with Juliet changes the two families’ relationship into one unlike any other. While Tybalt seeing Romeo at the Capulet Ball creates a violent uproar leading to two deaths; as he has to hold in his anger because Capulet does not want his Ball ruined. Just as important is how when the two families’ hate starts getting stronger, Romeo and Juliet only become more and more inseparable and are willing to do whatever is necessary so they can be together forever.
Thus, it can be well said that Romeo’s pushy and impulsive actions are responsible of the tragedy in the book. This will be proven by several quotes and passages from acts II, III, and V. Romeo’s decisions are rash and incoherent. Due to desire, Romeo is in love again, fooled by the charms of a pretty face and is willing to take any risk to see the love of his life. After meeting Juliet, daughter of mighty Capulet, in a ball he was not even supposed to attend he chooses, after their separation, to go back to her because he feels incomplete. Just the fact that he chose to jump over the Capulet’s wall was a bad decision in itself.
