At this point in the play, Lord Capulet is in no hurry to marry Juliet off.  Part of this, it appears, is that she is too young.  He tells Paris that he ought to wait a couple of years because she is only fourteen.

He also seems to think Juliet's feelings should be taken into account.  He tells Paris he can woo her, and if Paris gets Juliet's consent, then they can talk about it again.

This is sort of interesting because later on in the play he will get really angry when Juliet says she does not want to marry Paris.
