Romantic Love: Challenges, Consequences, and Revisions

Dr. Michelle Wolkomir, Centenary College

View the recording of the event below.

The romantic love story/ideology is celebrated in American culture, and it is the framework most people use to conceptualize and enact intimate relationships. Despite its importance and pervasiveness in our lives, we rarely question how this story impacts relationships and gender power dynamics. This presentation explores this question and then draws on data from polyamorous relationships to pose potential alternative narratives for intimacy and romantic love.
