For example, he is responsible for the death of Mercutio, which causes a vengeful spark to rise in Romeo. After Tybalt stabs Mercutio he turns to Romeo and says, “I am hurt. A plague on both your houses” (121). Tybalt killing Mercutio is one of the actions that lead up to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Tybalt had no reason for fighting with him.
This was careless and senseless of Romeo to do, as a couple of hours ago he was “in love” with Juliet’s cousin Rosaline. He is simply acting on the feelings he has at the moment, and decisions made impulsively or rashly are poor choices and usually result in disaster. Another example of Romeo acting on his impulsive emotions, was when Mercutio had died. This anger had boiled up inside him, and he suddenly had this courage
One of them, as said before, is his failure to make outcomes; another one of his flaws is his impulsive nature. Romeo, after having just met Juliet, decides he wants to marry her. Friar Lawrence even warned Romeo about moving to fast . Throughout the play, Romeo made many unwise decisions and for all of them, he had to suffer afterwards. Evidence of his impulsive nature is highlighted in his journey to Juliet’s house to express his love for her when he barely knows her.
One example of his impulsivity would be when Romeo interferes with the fighting between Tybalt and Mercutio. Another impulsive decision was when he commits suicide. He does not check to see if Juliet is dead before he kills himself. Romeo is also mischevious. He sneaks into the ball and if he would not have been in the Capulet’s house, he would have never met Juliet.

Romeo is then banished causing his mother, Lady Montague, to die of a broken heart in her sorrow for the loss of her only son. The morning after her death, Lord Montague said to the Friar, “Alas, my liege, my wife is dead to-night! Grief of my son's exile hath stopp'd her breath.” (5.3.219-220).
