Juliet’s age

As the story occurs, Juliet is approaching her fourteenth birthday. She was born on “Lammas Eve at night” (1 August), so Juliet’s birthday is 31 July. Her birthday is “a fortnight hence”, putting the action of the play in mid-July. Her father states that she “hath not seen the change of fourteen years”. In many cultures and time periods, women did and do marry and bear children at an early age.
