If Romeo had taken the time to completely evaluate how precarious it was to attend a party hosted by the Montagues largest foe, he would’ve resisted going to the event, preventing the feud between him and Tybalt, and causing him to never meet Juliet, who was to be married to Paris. Poorly thought out decisions were made between Romeo and Juliet, when they fell in love without getting to know each other first. Romeo even explains the danger and agony of love when he says “Is love a tender thing? It is too rough/ Too rude, too boist’rous, and it pricks like a thorn”(I.iv.25-26).

Is death worth proving love? In the play Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, all Romeo and Juliet do is try to prove their love to each other.
