Much like Roderigo and Othello, Iago's'jealousy catches up with him and he is tortured to death for the murder of his
Haply some poison yet doth hang on them, To make me die with a restorative” V,iii,173-78. We see how Juliet, without any hesitation to the matter decides that she is going kill herself in order to be with Romeo.

The more Dido goes mad with love and becomes “irrational”, the more Aeneas holds on his duty. For instance, after Jove sends his messenger, Aeneas “yearns to be gone, to desert this land he loves, thunderstruck by the warnings.” (4:42), and when Dido asks why, he says “There (Italy) lies my love, there lies my homeland now. ”(4:43). In contrast to Aeneas, however, Dido gives up on her kingdom as soon as she falls in love with Aeneas and all works such as building towers and walls, are suspended.

Iago was plotting to get Othello to believe that his wife was a strumpet. He knew that this would anger and sadden Othello but he wanted to carry it out anyways, all while still making sure the Moor thought Iago was being loyal to
Or else the devil will make a grandsire of you. / Arise, I say! (I.I.97-101) Iago uses racial slurs and racism to let Brabantio know that a Moor has his daughter. Later in the play, Brabantio died because of his daughter’s elopement with Othello.

So to try and cheer up their daughter they try and marry her to another man to get her spirits up. This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents do not know that they are married. So to try and cheer up their daughter they try and marry her to another man to get her spirits
