How has psychological theory categorised the different types of love? What taxonomies of love are most accepted or useful in psychology?

EDIT: I went through Triangular theory of love. Are there any other theories like this out there?

What do you already know about it, what did you look up, how did it not satisfy what you were looking for? In what way are the two questions related? – Steven Jeuris Oct 2 '13 at 14:15
Just to make this an answerable question, I've removed the separate question about how to make a relationship work. Feel free to ask that question else where or edit this one to more clearly show the connection between the "types of love" question. – Jeromy Anglim Oct 2 '13 at 23:07
@StevenJeuris: Question updated. Want to know more about different constituents of love. – HashimR Oct 3 '13 at 4:51
