romeo and juliet

Extracts from this document...


Lady Capulet's job was running the house and organising parties, producing children and caring for them and being a match maker for the family. She expects Juliet to do a similar thing as she does, and expects her to marry a wealthy man, Lady Capulet probably doesn't love Lord Capulet because the marriage was arranged, but is probably like a close friend.
