           The construction of the solidarity function in marital structures can provide a precise picture of the type of functionality of the family. The analysis of the last half century studies shows the individual either absorbed by the social norms of the community, therefore with a type of collective personality, or with a management that relatively ensures a type of autonomy for a greater access to self and own will. Therefore, although we analyze a social environment that can be defined by a type of community with a strong traditional orientation, the analysis of the texts of the representatives of the Sociological School in Bucharest also highlights a series of “deviations” from the norm, which projectively open to a new type of conjugality, jn a social space where cultural imperatives were strong.

            Starting from the two concepts described by Durkheim in terms of solidarity - mechanical / organic - we intend to make an analysis of the studies of the Sociological School in Bucharest in terms of the form of organization according to community imperatives that stimulated and influenced family behaviors. The article aims to analyze the social framework of functional manifestation, în order to highlight the type of marital structure and, at the same time, the resources used by some members in order to avoid certain cultural imperatives of the community they belonged to.
