The masculine and female roles within the family evolved to more lack of differentiation. This tendency resulted in a time-sharing between work remunerated and family more balanced for the two sexes. Three periods are distinguished: the years 1960 and 1970 still dominated by a traditional model of distribution of the roles - the women work but have an " auxiliary " employment -, the years 1980 characterized by the concern of rebalancing the task sharing within the family and of promoting the professional equality, in a context where the women are more touched by the development of " atypical " employment. Since the years 1990, the diversity of the family forms and the assertion of the statute and the rights of the child contributed to a greater indistinctness of the roles, to which testifies the progressive recognition of the homoparentality.
