Final Answer :
Explanation :
According to Maslow's hierarchy of needs, the need for belongingness and love is the third level of needs. This need includes the desire to establish intimate social relationships and to form a family. As Esteban is seeking to settle down and start a family, it can be assumed that his motivational need currently falls under this category.
