    Abstract

    In this article some outcomes of a qualitative study on the familiar trajectories that follow men and women who have experienced a break-up of union in which there were children are discussed. The design of the qualitative methodology is first presented before showing some results of the fieldwork done in metropolitan areas of Spain where the divorce has a greater intensity. The narrations of our biographers allow us to discuss the meaning of the family and the affective ties in the so-called liquid modern society and to review three basic concepts of the demographic analysis of the biographies of union ruptures: family, timing of the events and the determinant factors.
