The aim of this study was to examine the difference in communal skills and emotional comfort of teenagers in faithful and adulterous families. A total of 120 high school students in Shinasha community whose age ranges between 14 and 23 years from both faithful and adulterous families (60 from each family structure) were included in the study. The data was collected using questionnaire. The results report that teenagers in faithful families scored more on both communal skills and emotional comfort. Faithful parents are more responsive and caring than that of adulterous parents. Teenagers in faithful families reflected a feeling of happiness, capable in managing their daily activities, sense of confidence in voicing their opinions, positive self-concept and success in their communal relationships. Teenagers in adulterous families, in contrast, were found to receive limited interaction and support from their parents; they developed feeling of unhappiness about their families and lacked trustful and strong relation with their families and others. The study also revealed that teenagers from these families were found to have lower levels of communal assistances and diminished quality of emotional adjustment. The findings, therefore, suggest that family marital structure has relation with teenagers’ communal development as well as emotional adjustment.
