The demythologizing of love
Journal/Book: Adolescence. 1974; 9: 25-30.
Abstract: Considers that, as a partial result of a more liberal society and partially as a result of certain cultural transformations and trends among the youth culture (e.g., rock music and communal living), the myth of romantic love is losing its hold on adolescents. Because of their present time orientation, the abandonment of the scarcity principle, the de-emphasis on sex differences, and their communal tendencies, the idea of romantic love is not popular among contemporary youth.
