Adolescence is a time when teenagers begin to explore their personal identities. During this developmental period, teenagers engage in a process of searching for where they fit in with peers and society at large. It is common for adolescents to have an unstable sense of self and try out new personal labels and associate with various peer groups. They might struggle to define their sexual and gender identity during the teenage years. While these unstable identity issues are a common part of early adolescence, they tend to stabilize between the ages of 19 and 21. Hence the researcher selected this topic to analyses the problems of love and how it influences the late adolescence.
