Sternberg’s Triangular Theory Student Name Course Due Date Sternberg’s Triangular Theory Introduction Love has always been in existence as long as human history itself. The entire creation story and religion are all based on love. However it is ironically funny to discover that there is no universally accepted definition of love (Sternberg 2014). This lack of uniformity can be partially attributed to the fact that various actions that demonstrate love vary according to time culture and people. However several theories have been developed and accepted that try to explain this natural phenomenon. These include the Sternberg's triangular theory of love Lee's Styles of loving Reiss’s wheel theory of love and finally the exchange theory (Anderson 2016). All these have been developed criticized and accepted by social scientists as a means of gauging and producing a framework from which love can be examined. The core objective of this paper is to the Stenberg's triangular theory of love there are different components and the type of relationships. However it is important to realize that love is an essential aspect of the society since apart from creating harmony it also ensures continuity of the human species. Moreover its fun nature makes life worth living. Sternberg’s triangular theory of love plays an imperative role in helping one understand more about love. References Anderson J. W. (2016).
