Conclusion

One type of love is a childish type there's no comparison and in act 3 scene the love is much more mature and serious/serious this show the power and realism of play. In act 3 scene 3 Romeo seems to have grown up and now knows true love instead of a childish crush. His emotions are much stronger as he is now willing to kill for his cause.
