This thesis explores cultural constructions of couple relationships in contemporary urban Mexico in the context of recent processes of social change. Its main objectives are to explore the general understandings which young university graduates from Mexico City have regarding couple relationships and to examine the ways in which they draw on these understandings to account for relevant experiences and practices. To achieve these objectives, I conducted life history interviews with young men and women in Mexico City who at the time of our interviews were either studying or working in a range of professional and academic occupations. Furthermore, I document these young people's cultural environment and the gendered cultural logics present in it through the analysis of self-help books and self help texts in magazines.
