Lord and Lady Capulet
THEME: People should not force one into something they will not be happy with.
Throughout the whole story Juliet wanted to marry Romeo, but Juliet was too scared to tell her parents since he is a Montague. Lord and Lady Capulet had no idea of it and when Paris asked to marry Juliet they were both timid at first. Later on Paris was able to change both Lord and Lady Capulet's mind about the marriage. They told Juliet she was marrying Paris Thursday and since Juliet did not want to marry Paris she took things into her own hands, "'O heavens! O wife, look how our daughter bleeds!'
'....this sight of death is as a bell'" (Page:1097-98; Lines:182-183). Lord and Lady Capulet should have realized that their daughter did not want to marry Paris and should have not forced her to marry Paris so Juliet did not have to take things into her own hands.
Act 1, Scene 3
'It is an honor that I dream not of'" (Page: 1007, Lines: 70-71).
Juliet is kind of being antagonized by her mother because Lady Capulet married at such a young age and wants her daughter to do the same. Juliet does not want to marry Paris because he is a bit older and just looking to marry some good looking younger women.
Act 3, Scene 4
'A Thursday be it then. Go you to Juliet ere you go to bed; Prepare her, wife, against this wedding day'" (Page:1062, Lines: 32-35). Lord Capulet is forcing Juliet into this marriage without her consent on it. Juliet had no say in the decision made.
Act 4, Scene 5
'She's dead, deceased; she's dead! Alack the day'" (Page:1082, Lines:25-27). Juliet took the potion in her bed because she knew her parents or the nurse would find her there the day of the wedding. Juliet has gone against her fathers say because he was forcing her into the marriage.
