Before Romeo and Juliet meet in Scene 4, Shakespeare must set up obstacles to their love, so that when they do meet, we will groan at the problems they are going to face. What problem or complication is presented in Scene 2 and 3 ?

In Scene Two, Romeo and Benvolio discover a list of people invited to the Capulets' party and see that Rosaline will be there. They decide to attend - even though it is a Capulet party, they will be able to disguise their identities by wearing masks.

In Scene Three, Lady Capulet tells Juliet about Paris’s intention to marry her.
