Lord Capulet wants Count Paris to woo Juliet. He knows that he is related to Prince Escalus and has a high social status in the kingdom. He feels that Juliet should also have a say in the process. If Paris attends the ball, gets the chance to talk to Juliet and "they hit it off", then Lord Capulet will give his consent to wed Juliet. He also feels that Juliet is still too young to be married because she is only 13 years old. He would like to see "two summers" go be before she marries so she would nothave an unhappy marriage and be "marred." He also wants to be sure that Paris truly loves her and she is not just a fling. There will always be pretty faces but true love lasts for the entire person inside and out.
