What are examples of familial love in Romeo and Juliet?
There are three good examples of familial love in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Lord Montague, the Nurse, and Lord Capulet all show their love to either Romeo or Juliet. In Act I, Scene 1, Lord Montague is very concerned about Romeo. Romeo is sad and depressed and his father can't figure out why. He tells Benvolio,
Could we but learn from whence his sorrows grow,
We would as willingly give cure as know.
But woo her, gentle Paris, get her heart;
My will to her consent is but a part.
And, she agreed, within her scope of choice
Lies my consent and fair according voice.
Thou wast the prettiest babe that e’er I nursed.
