Social, cultural, and historical factors set the stage for concepts that define intimate relationships and that are internalized by intimate partners. In turn, the forms of intimate relationships, in an ongoing way, help change the societies and cultures and thus, ultimately, change the history of a given period. This is an ongoing evolution. Social forces influence concepts of intimate relationships and are influenced by them. Social forces in turn interact with evolving local cultures. Evolving cultures influence and create the nature of a historical period with its ideas of relationships. Feedback among these elements influences the ongoing relationship creation and interpretation.

Keywords:   social forces, history, culture, intimate relationships, internalized, society
