Palavras-chave: Discurso, identidade, gênero. ABSTRACT This paper presents part of the results of a research project on the identity of the urban middle class Brazilian women, and on how they perceive maternity, close relationships, sexuality, marriage and career, among other aspects of their lives. We interviewed 25 university students, aged 18 to 28, and enrolled in different courses of private and public universities of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The interviews were taped recorded and transcribed and the resulting texts were analyzed according to the following categories: maternity; sexuality; family; close relationships; physical appearance; professional career. The discourse analysis pointed to the fact that new attitudes and behaviors on the part of women are seen as not only possible, but also as desirable. However, their acceptance conflicts with old discourses that used to define women's and men's identities. As a result, for our interviewees, contemporary women should be multiple if they want to fulfill theirs and society's expectations: a competent professional, a cult, intelligent and sensuous woman, a good housekeeper and mother, and an affectionate companion.

ABSTRACT This article discusses the interface between mental health and loving relationship, from the perspective of positive psychology, in view of the importance of this interpersonal relationship for the well-being and quality of life. Positive psychology, by focusing on positive emotions and well-being, brings a framework of possibilities that strengthens the quest for health in different stages of human development and relationships that are established between people across the life cycle, focusing on themes such as happiness, satisfaction, state of mind, spirituality and positive affect. Love relationships emerge as a form of interaction which can present many positive and negative elements both able to contribute to quality of life and to suffering. We conclude that loving relationships, when considered a source of well-being, are an important protective factor of mental health, favoring the individual growth and marital satisfaction.
