The dramatic language of Shakespeare’s young lovers in Romeo Juliet serve as a cautionary tale of love, lust and loss which displays their divergent relationships and expression of love as shown throughout the play, and, ultimately, demonstrates that a truly progressive, wholesome and loving relationship must be spiritually based and equally beneficial to both the woman and the man to be worthwhile. Shakespeare juxtaposes various types of love through imagery and language in Romeo and Juliet as revealed by the flowery and passionate dialogue of Romeo of the Montagues as he falls in love with Juliet of the Capulets in sharp contrast to the sensual and dangerous lust he feels for Rosaline. Shakespeare uses his character’s language to depict Romeo’s feelings for Juliet, and to contrast the pure affection he has for Juliet with the superficial lust felt for Rosaline. Seeing Juliet at the window, Romeo instantly begins to fall in love when he cries, “But soft, what light through yonder breaks/ It is the East, and Juliet is the sun/ Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon” (2.2.3-5).

This quote demonstrates how deeply Romeo is possessed by Juliet, showing their love at first sight. Not knowing that Romeo and Juliet are from feuding families, they fall in love at first sight. The love between Romeo and Juliet continues, despite the bitterness between the two families. “Love give me strength, and strength shall help afford” (1V.1.125) This quote shows how Shakespeare handled an emotion, then translating it into something that gave Juliet strength to continue the Friar 's plan to be with Romeo.

Shakespeare also explores the different aspects of courtship, weddings, and the different facets of love. The aspect of courtship in Much Ado About Nothing plays a crucial role in the development of the characters and in the evolution of the play as a whole.

The first mention of courtship is in Act One, scene one, when Beatrice inquires about Benedick with fervor: "I pray you, is Signor Mountanto returned from the wars or no?" Beatrice loves Benedick, and he loves her, but she is too proud to admit that she has feelings for any man.
Claudio could be faking his love and want for Hero but he see the qualities in her to make decent wife.

Comparing Shakespeare's Presentation of the Love Between Claudio and Hero with that Between Beatrice and Benedick The love between Beatrice and Benedick is the idealistic love of Shakespeare and the love between Claudio and Hero is more realistic and physical. Actually there are contrasts and similarities in those two love stories in the play. From the beginning of the play, Claudio realizes, after returning from war, that he is deeply in love with Hero and wants to ask her father for permission to marry her. The other couple, Beatrice and Benedick, works hard to give the impression that neither is the least bit interested in the other. Later on, a plan of showing Hero's disloyalty of being succumbed to the amorous attentions of a man other than Claudio is worked out on the night before Hero and Claudio's wedding.
