Weekly Wrap-Up: It Must Have Been Love

Valentine’s Day is coming up! I thought I’d share with you something interesting. In English, there is no real way to express different types of love. Sure we can describe how intense it is, but we don’t have specific ways to say love between spouses, between parent and child, between friends, and so on. With no single word to differentiate these relationships, it falls under the general category of love.

In Greek, they have four main loves. These include Agápe, brotherly love or charity, Éros, which depicts “intimate love”, Philia which is an affectionate regard between equals (such as friends), and Storge, a love felt between parent and child.

So, my question is, if there were ways to describe different types of love in English, what would they be and what would they represent?
