Initially Juliet says of marriage that, "It is an honour that I hadn't thought about." It means that she had not considered it. She adds that, "I'll look to like if looking liking move. But no more deep will I endart mine eye." Despite what Juliet says, she probably has thought of marriage as social expectations for girls her age demanded it.
