    i don't have time to expand but
    -- it leads to him breaking social boundaries which constitutes death in the theatre world
    -- it leads to intense jealousy which allows him to fall
    -- it leads to mistrust through jealousy , resulting in desdemona's death
    -- he is unable to believe that Desdemona is not a typical venetian woman (loose) and choose to believe Iago over his own wife, which means he believes Iago's ridiculous stories, and thus kills Desdemona
    -- he falls away from god by elevating desdemona to a level above god
    -- he puts her on an equal footing with him , again breaking social boundaries

    The love he has for Desdemona is so strong that he falls victim to the "green eyed monster" of jealousy. This makes him vulnerable to Iago planting the seeds of doubt in Act 3 Scene 3.
