    Living in a different social era can be the reason for the different beliefs people have, including their perception of love and partnership. People's lives from different generations often interact and their beliefs are confronted. This thesis, in its theoretical part, presents the development of partnership, different explanations of love, the new understanding of love and partnership in postmodern society, options of inter-generational cooperation and the role of social pedagogues. In the empirical part, the analysis of qualitative research is shown. Four interviews with people from two different generations was conducted. The aim of the research was to find out how individuals from different generations understand love and partnership, which are the social influences, and how they estimate the inter-generational cooperation. As found by this study, the characteristics of a partnership among older interviewees are in accordance with Giddens' (2000) definition of romantic love, and predictability of the course of partnership. Younger interviewees show a stronger need for individualization and their relationships have more characteristics of confluent love, as described by Giddens (2000). In general, all four interviewees see the needs for inter-generational cooperation
