We all make bad decisions everyday. For example, watching TV when you have a bunch of homework to do, or playing video games all day instead of going outside to play. Now even though these are bad decisions, they don’t really seem to affect us long term. In the play, Romeo and Juliet, so many bad decisions are made that it leads to the death of two young teenagers that are in love, even though their families are bitter enemies.Throughout the play, their decisions keep getting worse and worse. In the end, their deaths boil down to three terrible decisions, Friar Lawrence marrying Romeo and Juliet, Romeo killing Tybalt, and Romeo killing himself.

The family controversy between the Capulets and Montagues caused the death of Juliet, Tybalt, and Lady Montague. However, Shakespeare never indicated why the families never got along.

Sometimes, our plans fails to work correctly due to misunderstandings of each other’s concept. It becomes obvious that various characters’ actions played a significant influence in the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet when we think back on the heartbreaking event. Although many other individuals were involved in the play, Friar Lawrence and Tybalt stand out as being the main culprits for the sad events that led to the young lovers' deaths.

(Rom. 1. 1) In this quote we see how Romeo expresses his love, even though he only just met Juliet that same night. With this, the couple’s secret marriage and relationship didn’t help the problem out because it made it difficult for them to talk to each other and really get to know each other before getting married. These actions are a key reason for the deaths of so many of the characters in the story. Secondly, when Romeo killed Tybalt, it set off a chain of events that lead to the death of Romeo and Juliet.
Bad decisions are something all teens make and they are usually reversible, but the decisions Romeo made were irreversible. In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet , Romeo made bad decisions that affected the whole story. If Romeo had not went to the party, some of the problems that happened, could have been easily avoided. For example, If Romeo just stayed away from the party, Tybalt would not have gotten angry at Romeo and he would not have wanted to kill him.
Later in the tragedy, Romeo sees Juliet dead in the mausoleum, and decides to express his love for her, then drink the poison. Once Juliet awakes from her deep sleep and sees Romeo dead, she takes her own life with a dagger. Both Juliet and Romeo’s tragic downfall could have been avoided if Romeo thought about the consequences before he murdered Tybalt. Romeo’s rash behaviors in Romeo and Juliet resulted in many negative consequences, and he consistently acted impetuously that impacted others in an unnecessary way. The actions he committed to were ideally the cause of the death for three major characters .
Society has not changed from making a rash decision. Everybody makes rash decisions every day without thinking of all the consequences. The consequences for a leader to make a rash decision may lead to war and death. For the everyday person to make rash decisions may lead to losing friends or your job. For kids, it may lead them to get suspended or expelled.
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a perfect example of how poor choices don’t only affect one’s own futures but also those of their communities. Romeo and Juliet fall in love despite their families, the Montagues and the Capulets, being enemies. The two marry in secret and plan to live a happy life together before a deadly fight breaks out between the Montagues and the Capulets and the lovers are separated. The heartbreaking story consists of risky decisions and bad timing. Romeo’s own impulsive nature, demonstrated when he kills Juliet’s kinsman, breaks Verona’s law of banishment, and suicidal act, all contribute to the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet.

Romeo and Juliet: Avoiding Tragic Mistakes Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, is considered to be his masterpiece; it is known all over the world and is perhaps the most famous play in history.

Next, Romeo and Juliet made a very inexperienced decision when the lovers decided to immediately get married.
