The nurse is the best character in Romeo and Juliet. She cares the most about Romeo and Juliet. The nurse is the only character that unselfishly cares about Juliet. Romeo cares about her for her physical appearance, her mom doesn’t really know her very well, her dad isn’t a huge part of her life either, and without the nurse, Juliet would be pretty much alone in the world. She also cares about Juliet’s love of Romeo, however, which makes her care about him. She is the only person that supports their marriage just because she wants them to be happy.

These two characters wanted the best for the newlywed couple; however, both contributed to the tragic ending of Romeo and Juliet, making some of their guidance useful and some of it useless.
In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet’s mother is Lady Capulet. Throughout the whole story, Lady Capulet wants Juliet to marry Paris. No matter how much Juliet argues and begs her mother to not make her get married, Lady Capulet does not listen. Some people may think that Lady Capulet is a good mom who just wants what is best for her daughter.

Lord Capulet acted with cruel intentions towards Juliet and forced her to marry. Lady Capulet was innocent in this case, because she could not be held responsible due to her lack of knowledge.
