Abstract

One phenomenon typical of late-modern Western societies is the extreme pluralisation of family forms, a true and proper archipelago of families, so that: the family can no longer be reasonably discussed in the singular, just as well as each couple seems to form a «mixed couple» . Observing the data describing this phenomenon and any perceived trends, prompt a first general consideration, from an educational perspective: the aspects related to couple formation, the choice of whether to marry, the preferred family forms, all highlight a breakup between the older and the younger generations. In short, we are confronted with a new culture of human relationships: this new culture sets new symbols for the couple and the family.
