          Abstract

          Men and women present differences that go beyond evolutionary mechanisms of reproduction and species maintenance; social and cultural dimensions are indicated as modeling agents of different configurations of romantic relationships. This study presents the results of relationship quality models based on Sternberg’s triangular love theory. There were 335 subjects involved in romantic relationships, of whom 190 (56.7%) were male and 145 (42.3%) were female. Mean age of the participants was 29 years (SD = 9.1 years). The results of the study point out that love components predict relationship satisfaction differently per gender. For women, the intimacy, passion and commitment variables are significant predictors, whereas for men the commitment variable was not significant.

          Hombres y mujeres tienen diferencias que van allá de los mecanismos evolutivos de la reproducción y el mantenimiento de las especies, puesto que las dimensiones sociales y culturales están indicadas también como agentes de diferentes configuraciones de relacionamientos románticos. Este estudio presenta los resultados de los modelos de calidad basado en la teoría triangular del amor de Sternberg. Participaran 335 individuos comprometidos en las relaciones amorosas estables, de los cuales 190 (56,7%) eran hombres y 145 (42,3%) eran mujeres. La edad promedio de los participantes fue de 29 años (DE = 9,1 años). Los resultados del estudio mostraron que los componentes del amor predicen la satisfacción con la relación de forma diferente según el género. Para las mujeres, las variables pasión, intimidad y compromiso son predictores significativos, mientras que para los hombres, compromiso no es una variable significativa.
