I’m now gonna talk about the patriarch of the Capulet family Lord Capulet, father of Juliet, husband of Lady Capulet, and enemy of Montague; and his sight on love.

He believe he knows what is best for Juliet who he truly loves, though he is not well acquainted with Juliet’s thoughts or feelings. He says that his consent to the marriage depends upon what she wants and tells Paris that if he wants to marry her he should wait a while then ask for her hand. Later, however, when Juliet is grieving over Romeo being sent away, Capulet thinks her sorrow is due to Tybalt's death and in a misguided attempt to cheer her up, he wants to surprise her by arranging a marriage between her and Paris – the catch is that she has to be "ruled" by her father and to accept the proposal. When she refuses to become Paris's "joyful bride", saying that she can "never be proud of what she hates", he becomes furious, threatening to send her to the streets.

He fixes the day of the marriage for Thursday and suddenly advances it to Wednesday out of anger and impulse. His actions indicate that his daughter's wants were irrelevant all the way up to the point when he sees her unconscious on her bed.
