Title: A certain romance : an examination of the relationship between socioeconomic status and romantic love 
Author: Paterson, Jennifer L.
Date: 2008
Abstract: Socioeconomic status has been shown to have a pervasive impact on many aspects of an individual's life. However, while variables such as gender, age, ethnicity, and culture have been studied with regard to their effect on romantic love, little research has been conducted to determine if the all-encompassing construct of socioeconomic status also has an influence on romantic love. This study proposed to rectify this omission by asking respondents from various socioeconomic backgrounds to complete measures evaluating their experience of romantic love and their beliefs concerning romantic love. It was hypothesized that socioeconomic status would influence romantic love in specific linear directions. Though analyses provided no support for the stated hypotheses, they did suggest a possible curvilinear relationship between the two variables. Issues with the population sample are discussed together with ideas for future research.
