Romeo and Juliet: Act 1.2

Characters
Capulet, Paris, Peter, Benvolio, Romeo
The gist
Paris is in love with Juliet and wants to marry her. Capulet says she is too young but Paris insists. As a compromise, Capulet allows Paris to speak to Juliet – if she is keen then Paris and Capulet will talk again. There is to be a feast in the evening which Juliet will attend. Rosaline will also be at the feast, and Romeo is in love with her.
 Quotations
“My child is yet a stranger in the world,// She hath not seen the change of fourteen years.” – Juliet is not even fourteen – she is too young to marry!
