LIMEIRA, Maria Ignez Carneiro de Azevedo  e  FERES-CARNEIRO, Terezinha. The role of forgiveness in the reconciliation: a qualitative analysis of the repercussions in the remarriage with the ex-spouse. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.3, pp. 822-842. ISSN 1983-3482.

The present study, part of a larger investigation on remarriage with the ex-spouse, aims to investigate the forgiveness role in the marital relationship reconstruction in the marriage with the ex-spouse. A qualitative study was carried out, in which 12 independent subjects, from Rio de Janeiro's middle classes population, were interviewed - heterosexuals, married to the ex-spouse, with children in common. For the results analysis, the content analysis method was used, in its categorical aspect, and the category of repentance and forgiveness and its two subcategories - forgiving is necessary and repenting makes a difference - were discussed. Findings indicate that forgiveness is fundamental to reconciliation with the ex-spouse, because it opens room to justify and relieve offenses, thus being a precursor to emotional well-being.
