A study of whether adolescents’ cognition of their parents’ marital relationships had an influence on their resilience and self-esteem was conducted, taking gender differences into account. College students answered questionnaires that measured their cognition of the parents’ marital relationships and the students’ self-esteem and resilience. The results of examining the relationships between these three factors were as follows: 1) Adolescents who were cognizant of their parents’ marriage being good had higher self-esteem and resilience than those who were cognizant of it being bad. 2) Similar results were observed for the influence that an adolescents’ cognition of the marriage of their mothers with their fathers exerted on the cognition of the parents’ marital relationship. 3) No gender differences were found in the influence that the favorableness of an adolescents’ cognition on the marriage of their mothers with their fathers exerted on the favorableness of the cognition of the parents’ marital relationship. 4) No gender differences were found in the extent to which the adolescents’ cognition of the parents’ marital relationship influenced their self-esteem.
