[Autom. eng. transl.] This essay analyses the results of the research about family and society, with a specific focus on the relation between family and work. A large number of studies, particularly those related to work-family conflict, having shown how to invest in a family sphere. It is appropriate to point out that the reflective process is influenced by: a) the partners' desires (ideals) and expectations (b) the dialogical negotiation of their respective plans and aspirations in both spheres. The decision-making process does not only concern the assessment of particularly important (personal or family) events; it affects the whole family sphere by determining the criteria for the division of roles. Only the decisions shared in the family and connected networks the opposite takes place when the general criterion for choice is the individual. Different variables were devised for analyzing both the conflict itself and some theories on family and proximity proximity reconciliatory choices, in order to identify the leading criterion of the personal reflexive process. These variables are designed for different purposes and meanings of reconciliation. Reconciliation can, in fact, be considered useful for achieving one's personal aspirations (individualistic reconciliation), devoting oneself to the care of children, (family reconciliation) .
