RONZON-TIRADO, Rosa Carolina; REY YEDRA, Luis  and  GONZALEZ-FLORES, María del Pilar. Parental models and their relation to violence among same-sex couples. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.2, pp.1137-1147. ISSN 1692-715X.

This article is part of a wider study that has the objective of describing the elements related to violence among gay and lesbian couples. The authors analyze the results of looking at the relation between the parental model and violence inflicted within these and other interpersonal relationships. We used a qualitative descriptive method and focal groups to collect information with participation from 8 gay men, 6 lesbian women and 1 bisexual woman, who were selected based on their availability. The authors concluded that witnessing violence between parents or being exposed to early violent experiences were significant factors in encouraging violent dynamics within. In addition, parental rejection after "coming out of the closet" along with the difficulty with identifying violence outside of the generally accepted heterosexual family context were obstacles for identifying different types of violence.

Keywords : family violence; child abuse; interpersonal relationships; couple relationship violence; same-sex couples; gay; lesbian; bisexual.
