Aim and Background: The present research aimed to compare family functioning and parent's marital satisfaction among the adolescents with and without suicide attempt. Methods and Materials: The study sample consisted of 100 adolescents, 50 with and 50 without suicide attempt, who were selected via accessible sampling and clustered-randomized sampling methods, respectively. The without attempt group was matched with attempt group from the view of demographic characteristics. The Persian version of McMaster Family Assessment Device (FAD) and ENRICH Marital Satisfaction Questionnaire with the reliability of 0.93 and 0.92, respectively, were completed by mothers. The data were using independent t, Pearson correlation coefficient, logistic regression tests, as well as descriptive statistics. Findings: There were significant differences in terms of family functioning and parents' marital satisfaction, and also their dimensions, between the two groups (P < 0.05). Moreover, there was a positive and significant correlation between these variables (P < 0.05). Family functioning and marital satisfaction could be the predictors of suicidal behavior in adolescents. The dimensions of roles in family functioning, the domain of personal affairs, financial management, marital satisfaction, and offspring's matrimony (child-nourishing) were the best predictor dimensions of suicidal behavior among the adolescents. Conclusions: Parents' marital satisfaction and family functioning impact the adolescents' suicidal behavior. This addresses the importance of systematic therapies, and presenting family and couple therapy in therapeutic sketches of adolescents with suicide attempts.
