MOTA, Catarina Pinheiro  e  MARTINS, Carine. Attachment to parents and romantic relationship: Mediational role of interparental conflicts in young adults. Psicologia [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.1, pp.1-14. ISSN 0874-2049.

The quality of early relationships established with the parents seems to be extremely relevant in the physical and emotional development of young people. The construction and development of secure bases relationships suggest greater willingness to establish relationships outside the family environment, in particular the romantic relationship. However, insecure affective experiences with primary figures of affection are associated with difficulties in external relations. This study aims to analyse the attachment to parents and test its effect on romantic relationship in emerging adults, as well as test the mediating role of interparental conflict in previous association. Were participating 505 individuals, aged between 18 and 25 years old ( M = 20.59; DP = 1.78), that answer to Attachment Questionnaire to Father and Mother (QVPM), Romantic Attachment Questionnaire (QVA), and to Children`s Perception of Interparental Conflict Scale (CPIC). The results point to a positive predictor effect of attachment to parents on romantic attachment. It is observed also that the interparental conflicts have a mediator role in the association between attachment to parents and the romantic attachment.
