I think Lord and Lady Capulet got what they deserve when Juliet “died”. Neither of them spent time with her so they didn't make a family bond so the family was distant. The nurse knew more things about Juliet than Lord or Lady Capulet. Lord Capulet also forced Juliet to marry Paris when she didn't want to and threatened her to do it or else he would disown her. Lines 160-164 “Hang Thee, young baggage! Disobedient wretch! I tell thee what. Get to thee church o' Thursday Or never look me in the face” He is yelling at her for not obeying her father to marry Paris and yells at her. This part also says that if she doesn't attend the marriage that she should never look at her again and that she will no longer be apart of the family. I also agree with Friar Laurence when he said that the heavens were punishing them for forcing Juliet to marry Paris. Lines 72-73 “And weep ye now, seeing she is advanced Above the clouds, as high as Heaven itself?” This is where Friar Laurence is making his speech and tells them about when people die and what happens to Juliet. He tells them they should feel bad for the way they treated her and was trying to cover himself up for marrying Juliet to Romeo. He gets away from re-marrying Juliet to another person knowing that Romeo is alive and they still have their secret marriage.
