Polo's incipient reflection on the family is explained from the notion of person as coexistence. First the filiation and the dual conception of the person are discussed, according to the author's explanation. Then a possible development of the spousal relationship and the man-woman difference, beyond what Prof. Polo said, are presented. Finally some long-standing stereotypes on the issue are mentioned, seeking to overcome them.
