Summary/Abstract: The formation and maintenance of romantic relationships is a priority psychosocial development task for emerging adults (18-29). Romantic relationships and experiences have important implications for the psychological well-being and adaptation of the individual. The paper traced out a poorly analyzed problem in the psychological literature, namely the relationship between parenting styles, gender-role orientations and romantic beliefs and experience among Bulgarian students at emerging adulthood aged 18-29 (N = 255). The results of the empirical research showed that the most preferred parenting style among young people was the authoritative one. Preference for feminine gender-role orientation is observed. Also, romantic beliefs and experience were essential in the formation of psychosocial identity in the period of emerging adulthood.
