What are some arguments or points in Romeo and Juliet thats show that their impatience was the cause of their death? Please help me.

I have two points. 1) They rush into marriage. 2) Romeo buys a potion from an apothcarey in the hopes of commiting suicide. I need one more strong point.

Thanks so much.

Your marriage argument is definitely a strong point looking at both Juliet's argument to her mother about Paris regarding not wanting to be married yet, and Romeo's devotion to Rosaline just minutes before falling madly in love with Juliet.

As for a third point, I would consider killing Tybalt your last topic. He does so in revenge of Mercutio's death not thinking about how this could affect his relationship with his new bride, Juliet. Romeo's murder leads to the Prince banning Romeo from the city. Romeo turns to Friar Laurence for help just as Juliet will when she gets a vial of sleeping potion to trick her family into thinking she is dead. However, the murder of Tybalt is what sparks this series of events. I would argue this is truly the climax of the play.
