OZORIO, Claudina Damascena; FERES-CARNEIRO, Terezinha  and  MAGALHAES, Andrea Seixas. The marriage of parents and the conjugality of children: from the traditional model to the contemporary model. Pensando fam. [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.1, pp. 20-32. ISSN 1679-494X.

The objective of this study is to understand the relationship between the parents' marriage and the children's marriage, based on their perception of the latter. We conducted a qualitative research in which 50 independent subjects (members of distinct marriages), from both genders, married. In order to collect data, the discursive question of the Questionnaire on the Conjugality of the Parents (QCP) was used. The answers were analyzed by the content analysis method and from them, the category marriage in the traditional model and in the contemporary model, unfolded in two subcategories: differences in relation to the parents' marriage and similarities in relation to the parents' marriage emerged. We verified that, for both women and men, parental marriage is seen as a model of conjugality. However, participants pointed out more differences than similarities between the two generations' marriages and the children emphasized the search for openness to dialogue in their own marital relationships.
