Romeo and Juliet

"Faith, here it is. Romeo is banished; and all the world to nothing that he dares ne'er come back to challenge you; Or if he do, it needs must be by stealth. Then, since the case so stands as now it doth, I think it best you married with the county."

This quote is significant because the Nurse, whom Juliet loves and trusts, is urging her to marry another after acting as go between for the lovers all along. Note, this advice comes after Capulet puts the women in their places and offers a veiled threat of banishment from the family if his wishes are not met.
