The Nurse tolerates Romeo and Juliet’s relationship despite them being from rivaling families because she loves Juliet like a daughter and wants her to be happy. She encourages Juliet to marry Paris because she thinks it is in Juliet’s best interest and despite her efforts she is unable to understand Juliet’s feelings for Romeo.

After they left, Juliet asked the Nurse about how to solve this dilemma, making the Nurse decide that it would be better if she married Paris, saying that he is better than Romeo, and that Romeo is doomed anyways. Juliet finally said that she would marry him, and that she would announce it at Friar

This buildup in tension was shown when Capulet was browbeating Juliet into marrying Paris and says “an you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend./ An you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets,/ For, by my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee”(3. 5. 203-205).

This could be a portrayal of her Southern Belle
