Lord Capulet

Dear Agony Aunt

I really want my daughter to marry a man I have chosen for her, but she’s refusing! This marriage is very important to my family as he is a very rich man. I believe a child should obey their parents so how can I make her listen to me?

  1. Dear Lord Capulet,

    You should let your daughter live her life - she is getting older

  2. Dear Lord Capulet,

    To make her listen to you just give her a choice and speak to her nicely.

  3. Dear Lord Capulet,

    In my opinion I think you can just let Juliet marry who she wants to marry to marry. Also she is nearly 14 years old, she is not a little girl anymore, she is a teenager, so let her marry someone else!

  4. You can not expect your daughter to be your LITTLE girl for ever. Some day she wants to do what she wants to. She will never leave her family though. There is nothing so important as family but one day your daughter wants to make her own family with a person she loves, not with a person that can save the bills. Love is the most powerful thing in the world, don't take that away from her.

  5. Just let her be. She probably loves another man. From S. PS take up football. It is fun and you can't think of two things at once.

  6. You are not a good father. You have no loving manner towards your own daughter. You don't respect what she says. The only thing that is in your dirty mind is money. You never think before you take action. The world should be fair, you can't control the whole family.

  7. Do you consider your own daughter, Juliet, as a machine for you to make money or continue your family tree? You definitely need to be more considerate of her. She should not have to act upon your thoughts. She is supposed to have the right to choose her own life style.

  8. I really don't know what to say to you. Why would you not let your daughter choose her love, you horrible man? I know that you might think that she is still too young to make her own decisions, but you have to let the bird out of the nest. She will make some mistakes and she will learn from them. Maybe you could introduce her to me? I CAN HELP!!!

  9. The point is: your daughter might not be a child anymore. If you want your daughter to marry the man you've chosen, just let her fall in love with him.

  10. Ask her what she wants to do. It may be that she wants to marry this man, just not at this time. Or she wants to marry a different rich man. You don't know until you ask. I'm sure it will all turn out for the best if you just ask.

married to Lady Capulet

Introduction

I am Lord Capulet, the husband of Lady Capulet and the father of Juliet. I am the head of the Capulet family and have an on-going feud with the head of another family, Lord Montague. I am looking to find a husband for my daughter and consider a nobleman, Paris, to be the worthiest suitor. However, since the tragic death of her cousin, Tybalt, Paris fears that Juliet has become immersed in her grief and is therefore unable to be wooed. I reassure Paris that, as her father and the head of the household, it is Juliet’s duty to obey me and marry the man of my choosing. Eventually Juliet relents and I get to work on preparations for the wedding day. On the morning of the big day the Nurse finds Juliet dead in her bed. I am distraught and overcome with grief as we lay Juliet to rest in the family tomb. I am later called to the tomb again, where I find out the truth about my daughter’s marriage to Romeo and their tragic deaths. This double tragedy finally brings Lord Montague and I together and we make a vow of peace.
