At first the nurse admires Romeo "Why he is a man of wax" (Act 1 Scene 3) but warns him not to lead her into "fools paradise" (Act 2 Scene 4) because Juliet is young. She turns against Romeo when he kills Tybalt "Will you speak well of him that killed your cousin" (Act 3 Scene s) "Shame come to Romeo (Act 3 Scene 2).

They would have been like a normal couple and got married to each other. For this reason I think that there was not one
