Lord Capulet thinks that Juliet is grieving too hard for the death of her cousin, and has decided that a hasty marriage to Paris is the cure for it. This is ironic, because when Paris first approached Capulet about marrying Juliet, Capulet is opposed to Juliet getting married too quickly, and insist on them waiting a couple of years. His mood is also depressed and emotional. His emotions are on edge, and one could come to the conclusion that he is seeking relief from his own grief as well as Juliet's. Based on the very violent nature of his response to her refusal to marry Paris, it is clear that Capulet it being controlled by his emotions.
