The family in Brazil if became the foundation in the settling, therefore she inside constituted a organizacional nucleus of the apparent disorganization. The Portuguese arrives at Brazil creating, in a diverse tropical climate of its, having that to adpatar to the ground infertile due the proper geography of the territory, to the feeding of the wheat for the cassava, entering in contact with the natives, if mixing, miscigenando. The lusitano loads the mentality medieva with its dogmas, however it acts of different form of its thought, as a precocious iluminista, therefore the colonizador is plastic, perhaps had the region of where it came and the contact with other cultures. Arriving in the new territory the Portuguese search to explore the ground, applying the cultivation, if not regimentando a State, but yes the gentleman-of-device (particular) and in way the miscegenation and the hybrid characteristic lusitano it, occurs the sexual intercursos and the cultural amalgamento, not forgetting African introduced it as man power. Thus, if it molds the patriarcal familiar model in Brazil, when the native (called aboriginal), the colonizador (called Portuguese) and the African join themselves (called enslaved).

It is not the State or the individual that has the domain, but yes the families who are born of the great houses, where if molds since boy ' ' archetype Mr.-of-engenho' ' , with its sadist tricks and its relations of domain, that go since the aggressive yokes until intercurso sexual sadomasoquista. Therefore it is necessary that in a society escravocrata the escravistas relations are propagated, and observe such behavior, even though in the relations closest, being able to deduce that the escravista system in mago of the society was regimentou. As it displays Gilbert Freyre, ' ' the family, not it individual, nor neither the State nor no company of commerce, is since century XVI the great colonizador in Brazil, the productive unit, the capital that tames the ground, installs the enslaved farms, purchase, oxen, tools, the social force that if unfolds in politics, consisting in the more powerful colonial aristocracy of the Amrica.' ' (FREYRE, 1981: 92).
