Capulet laments the loss, exclaiming that, "Death is my son-in-law." It is interesting to note that not long ago he was disparaging his daughter over her refusal to marry Paris; he called her a strumpet and threatened to cast her out. Now that Juliet is taken from him he feels sadness. Certainly the Nurse is sad over Juliet's apparent death. Capulet reacts much the same way as many of Shakespeare's men; girls are either disposable or they are put on a pedestal. When Juliet is taken from him, she becomes the untouchable jewel once again.
