It is a necessity that you can live without.

I think love is an ABSOLUTE necessity, in SOME form. The Greeks divided love into 4 distinct variations:
Agápe: Spiritual, selfless;
Éros: Physical, passionate;
Philia: Brotherly love between friends, community;
Storge: The bond between parent/child.

To someone who's never been loved, it is a luxury that is desperately necessary.

Absolute necessity. Ask any survivor of abuse.

I think love of some kind is a necessity for a civilized human life. Not necessarily adult romantic love, but the feeling of being loved at some point in one's life.

Well it certainly is luxurious. I would say that relationships are necessary because it's the way we were created. Loving someone is extra!

It isn't necessary, so it must be a luxury.

We, as humans, need love (at the very least companionship) of some sort in our lives. Those who don't are considered to be psychologically deficient.

Psychologically? A necessity.

Isn't love (or touch) one of the 4 basic human needs? Food, water, shelter, touch. I would also add that being cared for (even in emotion alone) and caring for others, is almost certainly a necessity.

To be healthy, that is. Maybe not to be living.
