ALMEIDA, Caroline Trevisan Mendes de  e  OKAMOTO, Mary Yoko. Experiences and meanings of the oedipal complex in contemporary families. Vínculo [online]. 2021, vol.18, n.1, pp. 134-144. ISSN 1806-2490.

ABSTRACT The aim was to understand the exercise of parenting and subjectivation in contemporary families regarding to the Oedipus Complex experience, from Linkage Psychoanalysis Theory. A case study has been carried out by semi - structured interviews with two couples, represented by the grandparents who fulfil the main nurture functions with their granddaughters, and the couple formed by the biological mother and the girls' stepfather, who also takes part in the family everyday life of the children. It was found that the exercise of parenting is shared and held by the four interviewees, constituting a new family experience in which the parental roles are not limited in a clear way. Even so, however for all family members, the grandmother represents the main figure who performs parental functions in front of granddaughters, setting up unconscious alliances and intergenerational aspects which have configured the family dynamics. It was observed that for an oedipal construction it's necessary to be performed a distinctive role not limited to gender or biological paternity, which allows the record of the differences and the inter-subjective relations' division.
