Abstract: With the growth of individualism and feminism, the way contemporary individuals experience their own couple have changed significantly. Having regard to the elderly who have experienced their marriage at a time when the conjugal standard was to set aside part of their individuality to concentrate on their conjugal relationship and parenthood, it is important to question how individualism can be seen today within the relationships they experience. To learn more about the situation, we conducted an interview survey with elderly who have entered into a new relationship in the institutional framework of retirement homes. The analysis suggests that the relationship the elderly interviewed experience with their partner is very different from the one which prevailed during their former marriage several years ago. These individuals give more importance to their personal privacy, or at least they seek a balance between their personal privacy and conjugal relationships.
