Abstract

Romantic relationships have a strong impact in our lives. However, an integrative approach of biological and social perspectives on this subject can lead to a better comprehension of the reasons for long or short relationships. This work aimed to contribute to Brazilian literature about this topic with a review on concepts about Love, Attachment Theory and Sexual Strategies based on an evolutionary perspective. The observed gaps on the topic and the results obtained by some research in our country are encouraging to maintain this theoretical integration at this research field that could be applied in couples counseling, contributing to satisfaction within romantic relationships.
