In most Western countries, marital coupling, and then the marital family, results from the love attachment of two persons. Based on intensive interviews, this paper is intending to explore the impulses nature of intimate relationships starting process. By analysing diachronically the transformations of social actors love stories, then their commitment to sexual exclusivity, and lastly the influence of the romantic culture, it will be argued that coupling as the result of being in love is mainly a dramaturgical process.
