Parenthood between couple crisis and attachment reorganization - This longitudinal research examined 30 couples expecting their first child with the aim of studying (1) the role of adult attachment representation as regards quality of couple relationship; and (2) the development of couple dyadic adjustment in transition to parenthood. The following instruments were administered: the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI, George, Kaplan, & Main, 1985) at the seventh month of pregnancy; the Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS, Spanier, 1976) at seventh month of pregnancy and at 4, 9 and 12 months of infant’s age. Results indicated no correlations between quailty of adult attachment representation in the couple. The quality of parents’ dyadic adjustment decreased significantly from time of pregnancy to when the child was 12 months old. Finally, two pathways were identified for women and three for men with significantly different trends as regards perception of quality of couple relationship. Key words: parenthood, attachment, couple relationship.
