BORGES, Carolina de Campos; MAGALHAES, Andrea Seixas  y  FERES-CARNEIRO, Terezinha. Freedom and the desire to constitute a family: perceptions of young adults. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.66, n.3, pp.89-103. ISSN 1809-5267.

In this study we examine the repercussions of individualism in the contemporary family from the results of a qualitative research, which investigated how the plans for constituting a family are inserted in the life projects of individuals from two generations. For this work we selected results from the discourse analysis of ten interviewees from a younger generation, men and women, aging from 27 to 34 years-old. We concluded that the appreciation of both individuality and personal freedom in loving relationships, the character of fragility attributed to loving relationships, and the perspective of marriage as constraining individuals are reflections of individualism that directly influence the way family is conceived in individuals' projects. Therefore, marriage is not anymore the focus when planning a family, and children are now central to the individuals.

Palabras clave : Individual freedom; Couple bond; Contemporary family.
