The Nurse believes that Juliet is not fully grown to be married as she said “She’s not fourteen” (18). Her age has proven that she’s not mature enough to become a wife and indeed that she won’t be able to act or talk like an adult. And because at such young age, 13, it’s obvious to the maid of house Capulet to act innocent, especially in her response during the conversation about her marriage.

While my parents allowed the two of us to have the same experience and I viewing my relationship with my sister as friends there was a time when our relationship was a rivalry. Even though I do not have memories of our relationship when I was a baby, my sister shared stories of when she used to torment me when I was born.

She is a “motherless child from the day she [is] born” (67), and Stobrod abandons her at a young age.
