PASSOS, Maria Consuêlo. Homoparentally: one among other ways of being a family. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2005, vol.17, n.2, pp. 31-40. ISSN 0103-5665.

Nowadays the family imposes a great challenge to those who dedicate themselves to study it. Its transformations are getting more and more visible, both from the point of view of the relationships internal to the family and of the relations kept with the other social institutions. In this work, we try to examine the homo-parentally, believing that this modality of family presents the most significant changes in the conjugal and parental relations, since it denies the paradigm from which the family originates: the sexual differentiation. The will of a couple to have a son, the mourning for the biological impossibility to conceive it, the choice of a way, amongst several, to carry through this desire, the relation with a third person that makes possible the coming of the son, are some of the questions we will face here.

Keywords : family; children; couple; homoparentally.
