von NFI Redaktion

In a recently published article in the journal Humanities and Social Sciences Communication, researchers examined trends in recent research and possibilities for future studies on the subject of romantic love and relationships. Their findings have implications for formulating guidelines that can promote stronger family bonds, thus fostering a more solid and resilient social fabric.

Background

Romantic love has been defined as an intense longing for union with another person. The presence of love leads to the transition from the initial phase of a relationship to the communication and satisfaction of a stable partnership.

Despite the power of love, however, romantic relationships are shorter than ever, and almost half of first marriages in the United States end in divorce. Attachment is no longer an essential factor in relationships, and expectations and experiences of love appear to be changing.

Love is a unique and mysterious phenomenon that has fascinated not only the great poets but also neuroscientists, psychologists, sociologists, and biologists. This has led to a wide range of scientific works on this subject, encompassing numerous disciplines that not only examine the positive emotions that love evokes but also the negative behaviors it can elicit.

The bibliometric analysis, which provides quantitative insights into scientific, technological, and academic works, offers a way to summarize and synthesize the depth and breadth of this extensive literature.

About the Study

Using the Web of Science database, relevant literature published between 2013 and 2022 was identified through a keyword search. The included studies were written in English; early access articles, conference reports, book chapters, retracted publications, and data papers were excluded.

Applying these criteria included 6858 works in the analysis, involving the creation and interpretation of informative and intuitive visual maps as well as the analysis of evolution and co-occurrence based on themes and trends identified in the literature.

Results

Conclusions

The results of this study encompassed research trends, identified the historical trajectory of science, and assessed fruitful paths for future research. The results are also relevant in identifying interventions—for example, targeted interventions could be made towards young men to reduce the frequency of dating violence. Future studies can expand this research question to databases outside of the Web of Science and include publications written in other languages as well as grey literature (conference papers, working papers, and other publications).
