Juliet realized that if Romeo did not kill Tybalt, then Tybalt would have killed her husband Romeo. In Act III Scene ii, Juliet states in line 110, "But wherefore (why), villain, didst thou kill my cousin? That villain cousin would have killed my husband. Back, foolish tears, back to your native spring! Your tributary drops belong to woe, which you, mistaking, offer up to joy. My husband lives, that Tybalt would have slain; and Tybalt's dead, that would have slain my husband." Here, Juliet comes to the realization that if Romeo would not have killed Tybalt, then her cousin Tybalt would have killed her new husband. Her love for her husband is greater than that of her cousin. Juliet, although very young, realizes that the bond in marriage between her and her husband is greater than that between her and her extended family member. Therefore, this scene concludes with Juliet giving her ring to the nurse to give to Romeo, as a sign to Romeo that she still loves and supports him in the wake of these events. Later on in Act III Scene iv, we see that the ring brings Romeo much comfort and hope (lines 180-184), as he was in anguish and uncertain if his new bride would still love him after she found out that he had killed her cousin in order to avenge his best friend Mercutio's death (Act III, scene i, lines 88-135).
