This is the night of the Capulet's party that Romeo attended. After they had learned each other's identities, they still profess their love for each other, but now along with questioning why they had feuding families. This then leads to the dismissal of labels which translates into talk of marriage and changing their names.
Upon request by Romeo, Friar Lawrence agrees to officiate their wedding. Despite the priest saying yes, he also does believe that this decision is made very early for the two teenagers. He only accepts under the presumption that this may help ease the tension between the two families
After Romeo is aware of the wedding, he is seen in a good mood by Benvolio and Mercutio for the first time in a while since before he was in love with Rosaline. They return to normal, he is not upset anymore and they start to talk which turns dirty. This transition is also shown when the nurse shows up later and is taunted by Mercutio. This further builds stress between the two families and is preparing the readers for the outburst.
