Shakespeare infers that emotional maturity is linked to sexual maturity, and that marriage is a big step that marks a transition into adulthood. Juliet becomes a woman in the eyes of society the night before Act 3 Scene 5, and uses this empowerment in her fight against her mother. Juliet breaks that bond whilst expertly spins double entendres, saying what her mother wants to hear but also saying the exact opposite. She says she will “never be satisfied” until she sees “him - dead - “is (her) poor heart for a kinsman vexed” and this could be taken in two different ways, either she wants to see Romeo dead, or she is sad for Tybalt. Once her father comes in, Juliet attempts to also sever the bond, although he manages to do it all himself, threatening “for my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee” if she does not end up marrying Paris.
Capulet, is forcing Juliet to marry Paris, to make Verona a happy place again after Tybalt's death. While Paris loves Juliet, Juliet still loves Romeo and cannot marry Paris because she and Romeo became married before he got exiled. Soon after Juliet learns about her forced marriage she plans on faking her death by drinking a potion to make her look dead for 48 hours. After the 48 hours, Romeo will meet her at her tomb and take Juliet away to be happy with each other. But as she drinks the potion we find out Romeo did not get the letter to meet her at the tomb and soon finds out she has died.
