Summary/Abstract: Two forms of “job versus family” conflict were researched:when fulfilling professional requirements hinders performing familyroles or conversely. Moreover, the participants (i.e. 140 professionallyactive women) were asked about the level of their satisfactionwith life.The aim of the research was to establish whether the experiencedconflicts depend on the following factors: age, living in a relationshipand being a parent.It turned out that the conflicts are moderately correlated and donot have an influence on satisfaction with life. While being a parentescalates both forms of conflict, neither age or living in a relationshiphave an influence on perceiving them. However, both of thesefactors are significant to the level of satisfaction with life.
