Summary/Abstract: The analyses conducted reveal the existence of the relationship between “family background”, and the quality of marriage created by children in adulthood derived from these families. The term “family background” is nothing else but a synonym of the whole experience brought out from the family home that the couple bring in a “dowry” in their marriage. It consists of elements such as the quality of the marital relationship of parents, parent-child interactions and interactions between children. Made analyses indicate that these three spheres have a deciding voice in shaping the personality, emotionalism, interpersonal skills and resourcefulness of life of children growing up in it. They are also the matrix for the children and the starting point for creating attitudes in adult life particularly in marriage. If the patterns are positive there is a high probability of achieving marital happiness, and if they are negative the quality of the marriage created in adulthood is under a big question mark.
