El concepto de amor en España

Se ha demostrado la importancia otorgada en nuestro entorno al modelo de amor romántico y la aceptación de los mitos al respecto. En esta misma línea, se ha sugerido que el concepto de amor puede tener un papel en el surgimiento y mantenimiento de violencia de género. Con objeto de iniciar el análisis sobre esta cuestión, se presenta un trabajo cuyo objetivo es profundizar en el estudio del concepto de amor imperante entre la población general española y analizar las diferencias que el género y la edad introducen en dicha concepción. Para ello se administró la versión reducida de la Escala de Actitudes sobre el Amor (LAS) a una muestra representativa de 1.351 personas. Los resultados indican que tanto entre los varones como entre las mujeres los estilos de amor Eros, Ágape, Storge y Pragma son aceptados mayoritariamente, el estilo Ludus es rechazado y se muestra indiferencia hacia el estilo Manía. Al margen de esta coincidencia general, el orden de preferencia varía entre varones y mujeres y para los diferentes grupos de edad. Se analizan y discuten estos resultados.

The concept of love in a Spanish representative sample. The model of romantic love and the acceptance of related myths have been granted wide relevance in our context. It has also been suggested that the concept of love can play a role in the origin and maintenance of gender violence. As an initial step towards researching this relationship, the objective of this article is to study the prevailing concept of love in the Spanish population, as well as to analyze any differences that gender and age may introduce in this conception. A reduced version of the Love Attitudes Scale was administered to a representative sample of 1,351 people. Results show that both men and women widely accept the love styles Eros, Agape, Storge and Pragma, reject the Ludus style, and are indifferent to the Mania style. However, the order of preference for love styles is different for men and women and for different age groups. These results are analyzed and discussed.
