The subject of this essay is to verify empirically whether, and under which conditions, the work-family relationship -- as it is actually experienced in everyday life - can be considered "good" and turn the family into a resource for itself and society. This goal first requires framing such relationship within the identity process at a personal, couple, intergenerational and social level. Any form of reconciliation involves primarily a reflexive and dialogic process of the person and the couple: if decisions are shared within the family and connected with the possibility of relating to other subjects (primary and secondary networks), the family can be a source of wellbeing for its own members and for society.
Keywords: Family, Work, Reconciliation, Society, Identity
