Sophocles gives purpose to Haemons’s suicide by demonstrating that its cause was not only his love but also to expose his father’s illogical and prideful actions. He states “Then she’ll die—and in her death kill someone else.” after Creon refuses to change his mind because of his pride. He states this in love because he doesn 't want to live without her so he 'll die with her. The character attempts to convey his emotional frustration as the final possible way of getting his father 's attention on this subject. His father responds by saying “are you so insolent you threaten me?” he answers “where’s the threat in challenging a bad decree”.
Although he knows he’s about to kill his wife for being unfaithful to him, he still hesitates and states what he is about to do is out of love. “Be as you are now when you are dead, and I’ll kill you and love you afterwards. One more kiss and that’s the last one. There has never been anything this sweet that was so deadly. I must weep, but my tears don’t signify a change of heart.
Romeo expresses this concept in Act 3 Scene 1 when he says, “And fire-eyed fury be my conduct now! Now, Tybalt, take the ‘villain’ back again that late thou gavest me.” This symbolizes Romeo killing the “villain” of hate (hate for the opposing family). Romeo’s intentions were virtuous as he thought he needed to break up the fight to keep the peace. However, it only increased tension between the Capulets and Montagues. The Capulets were enraged by Tybalt’s death as it got in the way of the wedding.
The princess only think about her own pain upon seeing her lover marrying another woman, and seems to prefer to watch his death. “How her soul had burned in agony when she seen him rush to meet that woman…” (6). If she truly loved the young man, she would not agonize over her decision to save him. The princess’s inability to think of anyone but herself blinds her to the pain she places on another. “Would it not be better for him to die at once, and go to wait for her in the blessed regions of semi-barbaric futurity?” (6).
This proves how miserable Macbeth is that he has to hidden his feeling toward her the war was about to happen soon.

Tybalt tells Romeo to fight him, but since Romeo is now married to Juliet, he says that he can’t. To this, Mercutio responds with,“O calm, dishonorable, vile submission!”(3.1.74), and then proceeds to fight Tybalt on Romeo’s behalf in defense of the Montague name. It’s clear through Mercutio’s rage felt diction towards Romeo such as “dishonorable” and “vile” that he believes Romeo’s efforts to make peace are acts of betrayal to his own family. Because of Mercutio’s brash actions in the act of defending his family’s honor, he ends up being injured and killed by Tybalt, all because he felt so much hate that he couldn’t stand down like Romeo had. Mercutio’s death made Romeo blindly angry to the point where he killed Tybalt, who was technically a part of his family.
Knowing their fate can sometimes blind people and cause them to try to avoid the fate. In the cause of Oedipus, Antigone’s father, his father learned that Oedipus was to kill him and marry his wife, Oedipus’ own mother, so he tried to avoid that fate by banishing Oedipus. He unknowingly put into play the events that led up to Oedipus killing him and marrying his wife. When Oedipus found out, he gouged out his eyes and prophesied that his own sons would kill each other in battle. This event ultimately comes to pass (Oedipus Rex).

Bernardo, Maria’s brother, was killed by her lover. Afterwards, she was much more bitter towards her partner, as she was close to her brother and unsure whether to forgive Tony or to leave him. She forgave him in the end, leading to one last punishment, seemingly from fate, as one last death would destroy both of the females in these storylines. Without realizing, their love had stopped the most simple of thoughts from occuring, “Why”?
Regardless of Macbeth questioning regardless of whether he ought to acknowledge the murder of Duncan, he is constantly persuaded by his wife that killing Duncan is fitting. Lady Macbeth even sees her spouse's weaknesses and uses his weaknesses to bug him into executing Duncan.
