[Autom. eng. transl.] The involvement of both spouses in paid work activities is a central topic in the social psychology of the family. Literature has generally translated the issue in terms of inter-role conflict, through the construct of work-family conflict. The present study, focusing on a possible direction of this conflict and on the basis of a homogeneous sample of 190 dual-use couples, wanted to construct specific typologies able to discriminate the couples of the sample and verify the differences between husbands and wives through a methodology multivariate (MANOVA models for repeated measurements). The results show that the conflict dimension cannot be conceptualized in itself, but is influenced by other variables and specific conjugal configurations (based on the construct of job insecurity). Moreover, the differences between husbands and wives confirm some shared representations about the closeness of women in the family sphere and of man in the working sphere. Finally, in the case of husbands, it is the specific types of couple that account for the variability with which the constructs take shape and bind to each other (especially in the case of job satisfaction).
