Abstract

The scientific article describes the peculiarities of the perception of student marriage partners of the concept of "love" as a romantic feeling. The aim of the article was to clarify the features of the modern understanding of the verbalized concept of "love" among student marriage partners.

The methodology of researching the personal meaning of the concept of "love" was aimed at identifying their semantic spaces among 142 students who are in a marital relationship through a free direct associative experiment.

As a result of the study of the associative field of "love" for five reactions for women and men, the peculiarities of the modern perception of married partners of the definition of "love" is the association with trust and care, care and tenderness. It was also found that the studied phenomenon is a category of intimate relationships aimed at satisfying sexual desire.

Analysis of the data of a free associative experiment suggests that the idea of love in marital relations of students generally correlates with scientific ideas about these phenomena. Love is seen as "trust", "tenderness", "passion", "respect", "sex", "understanding", "hugs". These associations belong to the associative fields of various topics, including spiritual and moral, psychological, cultural and philosophical. The most common associations were also: faith, dreams, romance, beauty, motherhood, partnership, view, positive, value, strength, mutual need. Therefore, it allows us to conclude about the positive perception of the concept of "love". Students' daily understanding of the concept of "love" has an emotional and psychological color with a physical component.
