DONNAMARIA, Carla Pontes  and  TERZIS, Antonios. About the evolution of marital bonds originated on Internet. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2009, vol.61, n.3, pp. 75-86. ISSN 1809-5267.

The present study has as its goal to study couples emotional experiences who have transformed virtual bonds into marital ones. Results by a master's research conducted by the application of investigative psychoanalytical method and content interpreted according to psychoanalysis reference of bonding configurations and group psychoanalysis. The research led us to recognize that, despite the possibility of knowing traces of the other's personality in a virtual bond, the meeting is bond's constitutive part. We conclude that, for the realization of a romantic bond, the Internet is characterized as a condition, from which the bond is constructed by stages like identification of intentions and values, mutual desire, confirmation of data as reality and the establishment of the first face to face encounter, in a process where good or bad results depend mostly of the maturity of the ones involved as well as of its physical presence contact
