OLAVARRIA A, José. Transformations of the conjugal family in Chile during the democratic transition period (1990-2011). Polis [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.37, pp.473-479. ISSN 0718-6568.

The conjugal family (marriage by choice, for life, based on love for the couple, living in a home, to procreate and raise together the children: the woman in charge of raising and of housework, and the male as breadwinner and authority) was at the center of public policy in Chile during much of the twentieth century. This article deepens on the changes occurred in this family configuration in the last two decades of democratic transition, from its historical context, tensions and conflicts. Information was re-processed from data bases of the CASEN Surveys 1990, 2000, 2009 and 2011, the data on two-parent households with at least one child, to deepen the knowledge about  this family setting, undertaking the necessary caution, since CASEN is a household survey and not a survey of families.

Palabras clave : Family; conjugal family; two-parent households; gender.
