BARBIERO, Eloisa Bocchi  and  BAUMKARTEN, Silvana Terezinha. We are parents, and now?: The story of both after children. Pensando fam. [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.1, pp. 32-45. ISSN 1679-494X.

This article seeks to elucidate the construction of couple identity and how marriage is redefined with the arrival of children, in addition to observing what is the space reserved for the couple after so many transformations. Therefore, we analyze the movie "Friends With Kids", which depicts the story of three young couples in the process of transition from marriage to parenthood. As a result, we showed that having children is a difficult task, housework multiplies, financial pressures increase and the moments of intimacy with the partner decrease. However, If the couple has solid foundations based on dialogue, love, partnership and understanding become father and mother will be an exciting and transforming experience.

Keywords : Marital relations; Parenting; Marital dynamics.
