Rencontrer sa belle-famille Étude des fréquentations avec les beaux-parents

Abstract : How meetings with the partner’s parents are organized in France? What is the specificity of this tie in the kinship system? Using data from an INSEE survey of family relations within 6,000 households we will try to bring some elements of answer to those questions. Several characteristics of the relations with in-laws can be moved forward. 1) Meetings are very frequent, especially in a working class context, and organized by the women (mother-in-law and/or daughter-in-law). 2) A strong tendency to matrilaterality can be drawn: men are more present in their family-in-law than women and this tendancy is more evident with the arrival of the children. 3) An heterophilia of sex shows that men and women have a different conception of the place of in-laws in kinship system. These specific trends of in-laws ties allow us to ameliorate our knowledge of the characteristics of the western kinship system.
