English(Romeo and Juliet)

Capulet asks Nurse where Juliet has gone in the beginning of Act IV, scene 2. The Nurse indicates that she went to Friar Lawrence for confession purposes. Capulet responds by saying, "Well, he may chance to do some good in her. A peevish self-willed harlotry it is."

Even if Capulet was unaware of Juliet's marriage to Romeo, what does this quote suggest he was aware of?

    It suggests he's aware of Juliet's "bad" behavior. He's basically saying that the Friar could still possibly "change her bad behavior". You know, something like thaat.
