They are often prone to breaking expensive things. Countless teenagers either currently have a cracked screen on their phone or they have broken one in the past.

These commitments or duties play a role in how a situation will play out, and dictate the consequences that follow. The choices made from the beginning to the end in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet are all examples of how people’s decisions, primarily those of Tybalt, Mercutio and Friar Lawrence, lead to a heartbreaking fallout.

Years later Allie is engaged with another man but falls in love with Noah again. Ultimately, they disobey what their head deems correct, and wind up choosing what their hearts desire. Similarly, Shakespeare uses the same theme of head versus heart in his book, “Romeo and Juliet,” exemplifying how the heart overruled the head.
