The notion of gender awakens in men and women a kind of competition in the couple; Sometimes causing frustration, conflict, antagonism and reciprocal depreciation. Thus, categorical differentiation appears within the couple as a source of accentuation of the differences between men and women in the fulfillment of family roles, affecting both the judgments of man over woman and woman on man. In order to appreciate the reality in the couple, this study proposes to determine the incidence of the categorical differentiation on the social representations in the couple, through the interactions. To this effect, the scales of evaluation of the social relations of Bazoumana are used on a sample of 40 couples, ie 80 subjects selected in the commune of Yopougon, in the district of Abidjan (Côte d'Ivoire) according to the technique of reasoned choice. The analysis of the results obtained reveals that social representations are influenced by the categorical differentiation in the couple. In other words, women and men are not assessed in the same way within the couple.
