#8: Literally any wife & Roman politician
The entire epic conflict of this play would have been avoided had Brutus or Caesar listened to their wives.
First, Portia tries to have Brutus face his doubts and open up about his troubles. She is—you guessed it—ignored. Then, Calpurnia predicts Caesar’s fate and warns him not to go to the Senate. He almost listens to her, but then—follow closely, here—he doesn’t. Caesar is brutally murdered; Brutus is banished, causing Portia to commit suicide; and finally Brutus impales himself upon his own sword. The real tragedy is how the husbands are THE WORST.
