People should not marry people they just met.

Act 1 Scene 3

Lord and Lady Capulet want Juliet to marry Paris, a relative of Prince Escalus, Juliet knows nothing about Paris, only that her parents want her to marry him. She agrees to look at him and see if she likes him but she ends up not liking him and falls for Romeo.
