RODRIGUEZ, Brunella Carla; MERLI, Laura Fernandes  e  GOMES, Isabel Cristina. A study on the parental representation of homoaffective male couples. Temas psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.3, pp. 751-762. ISSN 1413-389X.

From the traditional patriarchal family, relevant changes have occurred, generating a plurality of models. The fundamental role of family in psychic constitution, ahead of the growing emergence of new family arrangements, it is considered essential the study of the new functions and forms of relating in these groups. Aiming to comprehend how these representations and its possible relations and/or influences in the homoaffective couple relation and, possibly, in the homoparental family, five homosexual couples without children have been interviewed in their own houses. The method was the clinical-qualitative and the analyses were made based on the psychoanalytical referential. The results point couples still very linked to their families of origin; with conflictive issues associated to the process of construction of their homosexual identities; stuck to the model of heterosexual couples, whose relationships are characterized for the brevity of engagement, with the main goal to be the mutual support to the homosexual identity assumption of each of them. This way, we conclude that the unpreparedness to leave the place of "son" is an influent factor to not think about parenthood; and both are related to conflicts centered in the family, specially the lack of acceptance of homosexuality. Emphasizing the need of a greater number of researches in the area of homoparenthood, aiming a scientific approach of it, and providing the establishment of an ethic punctuated in the bond.
