In addition to being powerless, Juliet was marrying quite young. Since people did not live as long back then, it makes sense that they would marry younger. People became sexually mature, and they married. They did not have time to waste.

Women had no professions in the Middle Ages. The Nurse, for example, is perhaps an impoverished relative who comes to live with the Capulets where she works for them as Juliet's caretaker and later as her attendant--in essence, she becomes a servant in order to have shelter and food. Thus, women were dependent upon their families or their husbands as evindenced by Lady Capulet who obeys her lord when he orders Juliet to be married.
