Annotation: The article is devoted to the problem of studying the parental family and its role in achieving well-being of children during the student period without self-created family. Topicality of the work is due to public concern about the high prevalence of families of various types, other than full-fledged traditional families, successfully embedded in modern society. The results of the empirical research presented in the article reveal the characteristic features of the subjective well-being of student youth with different family structures. The study sample consisted of 272 unmarried students from Omsk aged 17 to 24, including 168 girls and 104 boys. Based on the idea of the emotional attachment of different family members, we found a connection between the single and married youth well-being reliable for any family structure. By comparing the severity of interdependent happiness and life satisfaction, we found differences in individual well-being between students from nuclear and extended families, as well as differences in family well-being between students from full and incomplete families. The conclusion of the study is the need to strengthen the resource potential of families, whose vulnerable position is a negative factor in the subjective well-being of student youth.
Keywords: parental family, family completeness and extension, subjective well-being, life satisfaction, happiness, student youth.
