Theory of Love

Unit VI Project
Psychologist Robert Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love is made up of three components: intimacy, passion, and decision/commitment (Feldman, 2011, p. 454). The combination of these components creates eight types of love. Your assignment this week is to “classify” love. Listed below are 20 famous or historical couples. Some of them are real and some of them are fictional. Your assignment is to pick seven of these couples and determine what type of love each couple has/had. Obviously, you do not know all the details of these couples’ lives, but using information based on internet research and what you do know or what is implied, give a brief description of the couple, and then describe the components of their love and explain why this couple fits the type of love you have classified them with. Some couples may have experienced multiple types of love—include these as well. Your choices must include at least five different types of love.
Your paper should be approximately 3 to 5 pages in length making sure to follow APA guidelines. Your grade for the assignment will be determined based on your explanation of why you believe each couple exemplifies the type of love you chose for them (not on whether you chose the correct type of love for that couple).
