Abstract: 
The aim of this paper is to identify family predictor factors for premarital heterosexual friendship and sexual intercourse among female university students in Tehran.1743 female students were enrolled in the study from four multidisciplinary universities in Tehran using two stage random cluster sampling and anonymous self-administered questionnaires. To deter-mine predictor factors, bivariate and multivariate analyses were employed.
Almost more than half of unmarried females reported premarital friendship with the opposite sex, less than one -fifth reported any type of sex and one-tenth reported intercourse. Multivariate analysis showed that strict parental control during adolescence, parents' liberal attitude, and low respect for parents’ views are important predictors of premarital heterosexual friendship. Moreover, strict parental control, poor family atmosphere, liberal parental attitudes, low respect for parents views are significant predict-tors of premarital sexual intercourse. The importance of having a good family atmosphere, communication about parental views and their expectations and a balanced control over adolescents needs to be emphasized in interventions.
