Based on the answers it was possible to identify 11 areas of family functioning which, according to the respondents, are crucial for the quality of the relationship within a family functioning at a distance. The following are considered by the respondents the fundamen-tal areas that bring together the marital and family relationship: 1) clearly identified aim of migration approved by all family members; 2) maintaining unanimity of family members aiming at the clearly identified goal; 3) aiming at relatively frequent mutual visits and 4) mutual assurance of both spouses about their affection.
