When he heard word of Juliet and Paris’s wedding plans, his decision to say nothing puts him in greater trouble. That also causes him to attempt desperate measures and to get Juliet to fake her death.

She doesn’t realize what she's doing because she doesn’t know what to do with herself and her husband because the baby is what making them be together. I find it disrespectful and absolutely wrong when a guy causes abuse to a woman. There’s no reason for men to be putting their anger on women like that, it’s not the correct way to solve any issues.
