What advice does the Nurse give to Juliet?

Expert Answers

in Act III, Scene 5, the nurse advises Juliet to marry Paris instead of Romeo, because Romeo is banished and Paris is, in her words “a lovely gentleman.”

This is crucial because up until this point, Juliet had trusted the Nurse with her secrets and accepted her advice. After the suggestion to marry Paris, the trust is broken and Juliet seeks advice from the Friar instead.

The nurse advises Juliet a couple of times in this play.  She says that Juliet should consider Paris at the party - "Why he's a man of wax.."  Later she tells Juliet that she should forget about Romeo, the relationship is as good as dead, and marry Paris. "Then, sine the case so stands as now it doth, I think it best you married with the county."

The advice Nurse gives to Juliet is to just marry Paris instead of Romeo.

She gave this advice because Juliet has already been scolded badly by her father, she doesn't want any more troubles and the Nurse thinks Paris is a perfect guy and also believes it would be more beneficial to the family.
