Abstract :
[en] The transition to parenthood is renowned for its challenges, impacting couples' lives and relationships. This study delves into the intricate landscape of relationship dynamics as pivotal moderators of conjugal satisfaction during the transition to parenthood, challenging the notion of an inherent crisis. Investigating three generations of the couple's history, health considerations, and postnatal needs, our primary focus lies in understanding how relationship dynamics play a crucial role in shaping conjugal satisfaction across various stages of parenthood (pregnancy, childbirth, and the first months of the baby's arrival). We will analyze findings from two studies: (i) a quantitative survey involving 534 participants and (ii) a mixed-method study combining interviews and questionnaires, and involving five couples. Our findings highlight the nuanced impact of relationship dynamics, indicating a fluctuation in satisfaction levels during the transition to parenthood. We highlight the significance of trust, commitment, and positive relational processes as critical elements in sustaining conjugal satisfaction. Also, protective factors such as social and professional support are explored, emphasizing the need for a comprehensive assessment of resources and encouragement of help-seeking behaviors. We will discuss the therapeutic implications of recognizing the central role of relationship dynamics and the importance of nurturing positive relational processes to ensure lasting conjugal satisfaction.
