Luckily for both Juliet and her mother, they have the Nurse, Juliet’s servant.

Romeo and Juliet meet at a masquerade ball held by Juliet’s father, an event Romeo should not be attending. It is love at first sight ; however, because they are wearing masks, they are unable to tell who the other one is.

In the play Juliet was the daughter of Lord Capulet and Lady Capulet. Lady Capulet was never really there for Juliet like a mother should be. The Nurse took care of Juliet and raised her like her own after her own died as a baby. The Nurse was very caring and sentimental but funny at times." I am weary, give me leave awhile.
After carefully analyzing the play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, it can be concluded that both characters Friar Laurence and The Nurse are seen as mentors to the lovers. As a result of the two families fighting both characters were forced to become not only mentors, but parents to the couple, which resulted in the Juliet and Romeo building trust in them. Both the Nurse and Frair Laurence have their best interest in mind when making crucial decisions, making sure they are happy regardless of the result. However, when events start ocurring, pressure gets the best of them and they both retreat. The Nurse and Frair Laurence are both responsible for the final tragedy of the play.
In both stories, their love is forbidden so they must find ways to communicate even without parental consent. In Romeo and Juliet, they are able to talk through the Nurse, Juliet’s mother figure. She will transfer messages from person to person for her “daughter” because she wants to do what she can for Juliet while she’s there. The Nurse says, ”I’ll find Romeo / To comfort you. I wot well where he is.
Juliet got scared when she came to her room, the same thing happens to the audience, they would feel scared. Shakespeare used dramatic irony increases tension when Lady Capulet was talking about Romeo and insulting him but Juliet wasn’t insulting him, she twists her words and outsmarts her. One of Juliet’s rhetorical questions states “what unaccustomed cause procures her hither?” this informs the audience that they have a formal relationship making it awkward for Lady Capulet to bring up news to Juliet. In act 1 scene 3, when Lady Capulet was going to bring up the news of marriage she calls Nurse back in
She has to take on the role of a mother for Juliet, and help make important decisions in Juliet’s life. Throughout the play, it becomes more and more evident that the Nurse has taken on the role of a mother because Juliet does not talk to anyone but the Nurse about the most important decisions in her life such as marrying Romeo and Paris. 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. The Nurse is the only one who knows what is going on in Juliet’s life during much of the play.
In this moment Juliet is conflicted she doesn't know whether to follow her parents expectations or to follow her heart. Juliet realizes that Romeo is her only enemy, but he's also her only love. She knows that this would break society's rules by pursuing this love, but she does it anyway because it's her heart's desire. Furthermore, Romeo and Juliet's entire relationship was based on a secret and the lack of communication caused the relationship to end in a tragedy.

In Act One, Scene One, William introduces Lady Capulet and Juliet and they seem very distant with each other especially when Juliet gives her mother one line answers and is very formal when speaking to her addressing her as ‘madam.’ This sets their relationship at a distant place giving the idea to the reader that there is something missing between their relationship. When Juliet is first introduced to the idea of marriage in Act One she is hesitant about the idea saying “It is an honor that I dream not of.”(1.3.68). During scene three is when the idea to marry Count Paris is brought up and discussed

They both want to be together because they are in love with each other but their families hate each other and both of them can’t stand being away from each other even though their families are enemies (Shakespeare para 1).
