Act III shows that the love these two have for one another has now become more intense than any other allegiance. To be specific, Juliet is more upset when she thinks Romeo has been killed than when she thinks it is just Tybalt. For his part, when Romeo learns from the Friar that he's been banished for his part in the killing, he cries out " There is no world without Verona walls.” That is to say, because Juliet is there, Verona is the whole world, and the rest of the world is useless/without value without her.
