MATA, Joziana Jesus da; SANTOS, Manoel Antônio dos  e  SCORSOLINI-COMIN, Fabio. Conjugality and parenting in homosexual and heterosexual couples: integrative literature review. Pensando fam. [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.2, pp. 32-45. ISSN 1679-494X.

The family institution has undergone significant changes in the transition from the traditional-patriarchal model to the contemporary. This study aimed at presenting an integrative review of the experience of marriage and parenthood by same-sex couples compared to heterosexual couples. From a search undertaken in LILACS, PubMed, PePSIC, PsycINFO and SciELO databases (2007-2018), 23 studies were retrieved. The review allowed to answer the guiding question, through the publications indexed in national and international bases. It is clear that the greatest differences appear in the way society perceives same-sex couples, and there are still many prejudices and stigmas that disqualify other family patterns diverging from traditional ones. This study has highlighted important gaps in terms of empirical studies that allow a better understanding of the experiences of these couples and how they organize their routines with children.
