      The article presents the results of a longitudinal study focusing on the role of family interaction measured in adolescence, and the subjective well-being of young adult women. Subjective well-being was studied using two components: the cognitive component, referring to an individual’s self-assessment of their life, and the emotional component, which is made up of two independent components – positive and negative affect. The index of emotional well-being was also taken into account. Family interaction was studied using Lewis’ theory. 66 young adult women (2. measurement) and their parents (1. measurement, information gathered ten years ago) participated in the study. The following instruments were used: the Family of Origin Questionnaire (Lewis, 1989), the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS, Diener et al. 1985, Slovene version) and the Positive and Negative Affect Scale (PANAS, Watson et al. 1988, Slovene version). The results confirm the premise that how the mother deals with the needs of the daughter, as perceived by the mother in the daughter’s childhood and adolescence, is a significant factor in predicting the daughter’s subjective-well being in adulthood. Connections between such predictions and the father’s experiences or the competency of the family system were not ascertained. The article also presents the connections between subjective well-being and other demographic factors.
