Abstract

BONILLA-ALGOVIA, Enrique  and  RIVAS-RIVERO, Esther. Psychometric properties of the reduced version of the Myths Scale toward Love in a sample of Colombian students. Suma Psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.2, pp.162-170. ISSN 0121-4381.

The main aim of this study is to assess the psychometric properties of the reduced version of the Myths Scale toward Love in a sample of Colombian students. The research sample consists of 443 university students and their mean age is 20.64 years old. The confirmatory factor analysis shows an adequate fit for a two-factor model. Both dimensions correspond to the literature and the reliability is appropriate: Idealized love and Relation between abuse and love. The results show statistically significant differences between men and women. In conclusion, this paper verifies the validity and reliability of this scale in the Colombian background.

Keywords : Romantic love; love myths; gender.
