Impact of Love on Black Communities

Love has shown to be a controversial, yet consistent, topic in multiple communities. There are components within the concept of love that must be understood before one can achieve love of self and/or love of a partner. The theory of relationship maturity emphasizes the key components that should be considered when in a romantic partnership: the self-focus, role-focus, and individuated-connected. Furthermore, there are cognitive, affective and behavioral dimensions that must be considered as well.

Along with these elements, there are challenges that make the process of being in a relationship complex. For instance, the perception of love has been heavily influenced by how society defines and expresses it through media and other public representations.
