My aim was to adapt the Family Life Satisfaction Scale, which was developed by Barraca, Yarto and Olea (2000), for use with a Turkish sample and to examine the adapted scale’s reliability and validity. In Study 1, I administered the translated scale to 441 participants from a range of age groups, and in Study 2 the finalized scale’s reliability and validity were assessed with a separate sample (N = 506). Further, in Study 3, I examined the convergent validity of the FLSS by comparing it with the Satisfaction With Life Scale, in a sample of 436 Turkish students in grades 9–12. The results of confirmatory factor analysis verified the scale’s single-factor model, and exploratory factor analysis supported the single-dimension structure of the original scale. Tests for convergent validity yielded significant correlations between life satisfaction and scale scores. Both internal consistency reliability and composite reliability were .95. Corrected item–total correlations ranged from .48 to .75. Thus, results of all analyses indicated that the Family Life Satisfaction Scale, as adapted, is valid and reliable for use with Turkish samples.
