Attraction, Friendship, and Love.html

Attraction, Friendship, and Love

As human beings (like many other mammals), you have various biological drives to maintain life such as hunger and thirst. You also have the drive to continue your species. Look at these drives as the foundation upon which your social interactions are built. It will help to understand the concept of attraction, friendship, and love. Although the traditions associated with attraction, friendship, and love may differ across various cultures, they are still the basic underlying drives. Your need to thrive begins at birth with instinctual reflexes such as rooting. Newborns across species seek the familiarity of the mother to survive. As the baby develops and grows, this drive evolves into a need to feel secure and to be nurtured.

Harlow (1958) found that babies not provided with a basic level of nurturing do not thrive as well as babies who have been cared for by their parents. It is not difficult to link the nurturing and security needs of children to your needs as adults for things like companionship. Humans are social animals who need interaction and companionship with others to survive. However, you can also infer this need for social interaction to be, in part, based on biological substrates as well as the type of imprinting received as newborns.

You seek relationships at different levels depending on your social needs and interests. For example, an individual may participate in the local church choir and develop attachment with the situation. The same individual may also play cards with a group of old college buddies. Card playing is secondary to the camaraderie and an easy way of reminiscing about old times and past friends. All relationships begin with the unknown and, as such, there is a period of uneasiness and reluctance to give to that relationship.

Why Certain Relationships Do Not Work

A long-term relationship can be compared to a big ball of yarn to which you have been adding bits and pieces over the years and that is now as big as a basketball and so intertwined that you would probably need years to unravel it unless, of course, you get angry and cut away the layers of string to access the core of the ball. The question that arises then is, why does a relationship end, especially one that has lasted for several years? In some ways, a relationship of several years with a strong commitment from both individuals can end either slowly over time or quickly through volatile acts by either individual.

Why Do Relationships End?

The typical thought regarding divorce is something akin to a deteriorating relationship filled with fighting, arguing, a lack of consideration for each other, and a lack of physical attraction.

Although Amato and Hohmann-Marriott (2007) agreed that these are some of the issues leading to divorce, they believed there are other reasons for a divorce not riddled with high levels of discord. Therefore, the researchers conducted a study to understand why some marriages end in high distress, while others end in low distress. They began their study by asking the question: Why do married couples get divorced?

For this study, data was taken from the National Survey of Families and Households, which was conducted in two phases, 1987–1988 and 1992–1994. In between the two phases, 11 percent of the 4,460 couples studied got separated or divorced (n = 509).

It was observed that among the divorced couples, about half were in high-distress relationships and the rest in low-distress relationships. These findings were not a result of the timing of the interviews or a measurement error. Irrespective of marital quality, the couples who divorced shared many risk characteristics, such as having divorced parents.

Result of the Study

Data analysis indicated that high-distress individuals reported being happier after divorce, while low- distress individuals revealed being less happy after divorce. Amato concluded that low-distress marriages may end in divorce due to a poor relationship and, to begin with, a lack of commitment to marriage.
