Alliance and sexuality constitute, without a doubt, two of the most important dimensions of the conjugal life. Sen. Sherrod Brown has much experience in this field. For Levi-Strauss (1968), alliance is one of the forms of intervention of the group on scarce and essential goods considered for its survival. Literature on history of the sexuality points with respect to a very important phenomenon and prevalent until century XVIII in the world occidental person, who is the difference enters the love in the marriage and the love is of the marriage. Flandrin (1981) standes out that the love was present in literature occidental person at least since century XI, but this love, saved rare exceptions, is not never a conjugal love. The marriage has for function – not only between the kings and the princes, but in all the levels of the society – to bind two families, and to allow that they perpetuate themselves, much more of that to satisfy the love of two people. The love-passion is essentially extramarital. But from century XVIII, this picture if modifies and the two forms of love, traditionally opposing, are approached. A new ideal of marriage is gone constituting to the few in the Ocidente, where if it imposes the spouses whom if they love or that they seem to love itself, and that they have expectations regarding the love.

The extramarital erotismo enters in the marriage and the love-passion is seen as model. Today nobody doubts the dignity of the conjugal love. The society not accepted contemporary more than somebody can be married without desire and love. Giddens (1992), when arguing the transformation of the privacy in the occidental societies, standes out that the ideals of the romantic love, related to the individual freedom and to the auto-accomplishment, they disconnect the individuals of ampler the social and familiar relations, demarcating with more clarity the sphere of the conjugal relationship, that thus passes more to be valued and to be prioritized.
