Although no specific age is given for "Old" Capulet, Lady Capulet is about 28. She says that she was about Juliet's age (almost 14) when she had Juliet. If this is so, then even if "Old" Capulet were 21 when he married Lady Capulet, he would be considered "old." Traditionally, both parents are usually shown as forties-ish.
