Abstract: Publishing the book „Romanian Family – Social Evolution and Contemporary Challenges” justifies its importance from the very beginning, through its scientific quality and the current nature of the topics presented in the book. Further, it becomes a landmark work given the fact that for the Romanian conjugal space, the scientific literature describes the general marital couple, in theoretical terms, framing conjugality in its classic, features of functionality. From this point of view, the novelty of the book derives from the fact that the topics approached are placed in a modern and postmodern context regarding the new structure of conjugal cohabitation, using social and legal arguments up until the legal alternatives for marriage. Therefore, from a different perspective, the new conjugal perspectives developed in Romania more as first tendencies, target the conjugal relationships with contractual attitudes. For this type of conjugality, the relationships between the partners have an individualist orientation, reason for which the legislative is asked to provide specific legal framework that would better secure their patrimony, would establish financial rules for both partners and would ensure easy access to dissolution and sharing goods. This is the reason why, since 2002, Romania has had 3 projects of legalizing the consensual union, starting from the possibility of legally authenticating the relationships between two heterosexual partners and, in the case of the last two legislative proposals, until the possibility of legalizing the relationships between the partners, regardless of their sexual orientation.
