Some features of love and amorousness concepts in religious youth

Abstract

A review of psychological research on the phenomenon of love and amorousness made it possible to conclude that contradictory, unformed representations of love and falling in love can lead to disharmonious premarital relationships, mistakes in the choice of a marriage partner and, in the future, to a disturbance in family relationships. The theoretical basis of the research is represented by the structural approach in the theory of social representations. The study used the methodology of free associations, essays and interview. The analysis of love and amorousness representations structure has led to identifying differences in the notions of love and amorousness among nonbelieving and believing respondents — members of the Protestant community. In the basis of the differences in the concept of love, respondents have followed the categories of "sacrifice", "god", "negative consequences". The hierarchy of coinciding categories in the respondents' views has reflected differences in two samples. The category of "physical intimacy" has been identified as the background for the differences in the notion of falling in love. The nonbelieving respondents have the category "physical intimacy" in the core of their notion of love. Love and amorousness in the views of the respondents of the two groups are different. The authors have also carried out statistical processing of the results using the φ* category — Fisher z-transformation.
