The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship between emotional maturity, perceived social support and family preferences among high school female students and research method was descriptive correlational. The statistical population of the study included all 3rd grade high school students in Khorram, in the academic year 1395-96 and about 4980 female students. 357 female students were selected through multi-stage cluster sampling from all female students. The research tools were three family-specific questionnaires (Hill Bron, 1964), perceived social support (Zimt et al., 1988) and emotional maturity (Sink and Bahargawa, 1991). According to the results: 1. There is a positive and significant correlation between "emotional maturity", "perceived social support" and "emotional atmosphere of the family". Perceived social support and family emotional atmosphere can predict emotional maturity. 2. There was a significant difference in the "emotional maturity" variable between the students in District 1 and 4, but in other variables, there was no significant difference between the two areas. In order to prevent educational and occupational problems, you can be more successful with the proper planning to promote emotional maturity, family affectivity and perceived social security.
