This is Capulet's response for Juliet saying no. He gives her consequences if she doesn't go through with the marriage. Capulet believed that his daughter was disobeying his orders.
Romeo and Juliet both suicide after seeing each other dead. After Romeo hears about Juliet’s death, he goes to her tomb to see her one last time and kiss her before he suicides. “Here’s to my love. O true apothecary,/Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die”(V.iii.119-120). Romeo should have overlooked his quick thoughts of suicide, and should have realized how much he still had to live for. The aftermath of this action was that both Romeo and Juliet both end up dead in the final tragedy. After Juliet sees Romeo dead, she decides to kill herself with a dagger. “Yea, noise? Then I’ll be brief. O, happy dagger,/This is thy sheath. There rust, and let me die”(V.iii.174-175). This evidence is an example of the consequences that can occur after a hasty, sad-driven decision. If Romeo did not suicide while under the influence of his emotions, both Romeo and Juliet would have lived, and the ultimate, final tragedy of the play would have been avoided, but instead, Romeo’s emotions misguided him to choose the awful decision of suicide. These actions reveal how quickly sadness leads to horrendous repercussions due to the actions that it
Now that Juliet has met Romeo, she is lovestruck. After the party, Juliet is on the balcony, dreaming about Romeo. Little does she know that Romeo is hiding in the bushes. As he hides, Juliet speaks of him, “O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name; Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a
Capulet will go to extreme measures to do what he thinks is right for his daughter. Capulet thinks that it is inevitable for Juliet to marry Paris and goes as far as saying “I’ll tell you what: get to church on Thursday, or never look me in the face again. Don’t say anything! Don’t reply! Don’t answer me back! My fingers are itching! Wife, we thought we were very lucky that God gave us this only child – but now I realize that this one is one too many and we’ve been cursed in having her! To blazes with her, the worthless creature!” (185). In his rant he fails to realize that this is truly not what Juliet wants and that this is not what’s best for her. The only thing in the way of Juliet marring Paris is that she secretly loves Romeo and is waiting for the day that she reunites with him and they live happily ever after. This rant by Lord Capulet turns Juliet against her father and shows the readers that Lord Capulet is not the loving father he once was. Later in the play, Juliet is found dead because of Lord Capulet’s insensitivity and ignorance towards her
This shows that Juliet is desperately trying to tell her father what she wants but men didn't really care about women's opinions. Lord Capulet replies with more threats and saying that if Juliet doesn't go to marry Paris next Thursday he will disown her.
I knew of Romeo and Juliet’s relationship before their deaths took place. Romeo entrusted me with his secret and asked me to bring a rope ladder to Juliet’s nurse. This rope ladder would help Romeo sneak into the Capulet house to meet with Juliet. I was surprised about their relationship at first, but I knew that Romeo sincerely had his heart set on Juliet and nothing could change that. I was completely willing to follow all of my master’s orders and keep his secret because I saw how much joy Juliet brought to him.
He threatens to disown Juliet if she refuses Paris; ‘hang, beg, starve, die in the streets,/For, by my soul I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee,’ before he finally storms out. Tearfully distraught, Juliet begs her mother to: ‘delay this marriage for a month, a week…’, but Lady Capulet remains unmoved, declaring: ‘I have done with thee.’
The night before her wedding day, Juliet waits for Romeo with excitement. The Nurse enters the room with the rope ladder that Romeo is to use to climb into Juliet’s room, but throws it down tiredly and sighs “ Ah well a day! He’s dead, he’s dead…we are undone lady”. The Nurse goes on and on, until Juliet thinks that she is talking about Romeo. After she has calmed down, she tells Juliet that Romeo killed Tybalt in a street fight, and tells that Juliet that no man can be trusted.
The Montagues had requested to speak with The Capulets to resolve the entire feud. The two families meet in the centre of the square, like a battle about to take place however it was the opposite. “Lord and Lady Capulet.” The Montagues address the Capulets. “We meet again.” Lady Montague and Capulet lift up their long, heavy dresses to reveal their shoes. “I’ve requested this meeting to discuss our past...problems, if you will.” Lady Capulet slowly nods her head in agreement. “I believe that the tragic, sudden and confusing death of our children should be a huge wake up call for us. A wake up call to stop being irrational and end the whole feud.” The Friar walks up to Lady Montague. “It wasn’t really a confusing death if…” Lady Montague raises her index finger in his face to shush him. What would The Capulets

Young Juliet must confront the harsh reality that exists between her and those who profess to be her friends and family, which is they failed to support her, love her, and lift her up with she needed it most. In the timeless book, “Romeo & Juliet” William Shakespeare writes a moving story about the betrayal, disappointment, love, and eventual death of Romeo and Juliet.

After the ball and after Romeo lays his eyes on Juliet, Romeo decides that he cannot possibly return home. He decides to climb the wall that surrounds the Capulet property and search for Juliet. Mercutio and Benvolio try to find Romeo to no avail. Mercutio mocks Romeos ridiculous and fickle obsession with love, "Nay, I'll conjure too.
Inevitably, passionate love is woven through “Romeo and Juliet”, declared by speech and insinuated by the couple infatuation with each other. Without a doubt, several scenes were a strong representation of this obsession. Many scenes into the play, the young, lovelorn Romeo is seen in a dismal and in a disconnected state due to his unrequited love for Rosaline. But as his hopeless eyes falls upon Juliet at the Capulet’s ball, Romeo is resurrected from his depression in awe by the mesmerising beauty of Juliet; this was expressed through Romeo’s soliloquy.

Although Juliet fears for Romeo’s life, Romeo fearlessly

Later in the scene, Romeo and Juliet marry, despite only knowing each other for 2 days at the time, leading to the idea that they may just be in lust rather than in true love.
CAPULET: Hold on, I don’t understand. What do you mean, she’s not listening? Isn’t she grateful? Doesn’t she realize what lucky she is having such great relatives? Doesn’t she realize how unworthy she is complaining about her admirable and exceptional cousins?
