Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
Capulet, Lady Capulet and Paris talk about marriage.
Act 3, Scene 4
Paris meets up with Capulet and Lady Capulet. Capulet talks about how he didn't have time to convince his daughter for marriage with Paris, and it is too late for her to come downstairs tonight.
"That we have no time to move our daughter" (3.4.2).
Lady Capulet prepares to ask about Juliet's opinion on the sudden marriage idea between herself and Paris. However, Lady Capulet decides to tell Juliet about the marriage tomorrow, as she is sad and depressed today from the fight between Tybalt and Romeo.
"I will, and know her mind early tomorrow" (3.4.11).
Capulet schedules Juliet's wedding with Paris for Thursday. He makes sure not to invite many people, so Tybalt isn't dishonored.
"O' Thursday let it be.----- O' Thursday, tell her" (3.4.23)
Capulet confirms Juliet's wedding for Thursday, and tells Lady Capulet to visit Juliet before she goes to bed to prepare her for the wedding day.
"Go you to Juliet ere you go to bed" (3.4.34).
