Sammanfattning (abstract):
This study examined views on romantic relationships against a background of changes in social contexts of love and work from ages 25 to 29. Thematic analysis of interviews with 124 Swedish late emerging adults revealed that a romantic relationship was important to most of the participant and that a majority of them wanted to get married. They expected loyalty, openness, stability, togetherness, and intimacy from the relationship. Reasons for getting married involved practical advantages and symbolical meanings. A strong norm toward establishing a romantic relationship in the late twenties was apparent in the results.
