Love is a word that is part of every religion. Every religion tells its followers to love other human beings. Love can be in different forms. The love of a mother towards the child is different from all other kinds of love. Even the love between a husband and wife changes from the time they get married to the later years in their life. The love starts maturing as the relationship progresses.

This change as a person progresses in life is called as the progressive changes in love.

1. Infantile stage of love:
In this stage the child is busy filling his or her own needs only. A baby receives love just because it has been born. The baby cannot love others and no one expects the baby to love them because of the small age. The infant in this stage can only think of himself and what he can get from others. The infant thinks only of satisfying its desires. The infant does not care anything about others.

2. Parental love stage: The first love of the child other than himself revolves around the parents. This is especially true about the love of the child to its mother. This is probably because of the time that is spent by the mother with the child. It is also because the mother provides most of the things that is required by the child. Soon the mother means more to the child than anyone else. The child will start wanting the mother to stay with him always. Later as the child grows, the child also tries to emulate the footsteps of the father.

3. Buddy love stage: This is the third stage of the progressive love in the life of a human being. This is the love exhibited by the child a few years later when the child is able to go out into the world. The child takes an active interest in children of similar age group. This is mainly with the children of the same s*x as the child. The dependence on the parents and home begin to break. Now the child first loves himself or herself. Then the child loves his friends and then his parents.

4. Adolescent stage love: This is the age in which the child who has become an adolescent goes into a trial and error stage of falling in love in search for the perfect partner. The horizon expands for the young adult. The individual starts taking interest in the opposite s*x. The individual may place memvers of the opposite s*x above studies, work and family members. This is a natural process in all human beings. Though the age of the child changes, the tendency of the person is still the same. The individual thinks more of what they can do for themselves than what one can do for others.

5. Mature love stage: This is the final stage of the progression of love. In this stage, the love is mature and the individual; has matured and is older. In this stage, the person thinks more of others. The physical attraction becomes less significant. The emotional and psychological factors become more important. The person thinks more of what they can do for others than what others can do for them.

Going through all the stages is normal, though some people tend to skip one or two of these stages in their life.
