Overview

Ten papers examine the effects of divorce on the adult lives of children, specifically in regard to predictions of these children's expectation of adult intimate relationships, as well as of their overall emotional well-being in the future. Many of the studies rely on populations from college and high school settings. Interestingly, a number of the studies resulted in findings either not supporting or contradicting the tested hypotheses. For example, it was found that children from intact homes scored higher in tests of irrational thinking, while children from divorced homes showed the same optimism towards the idea of getting married as those from intact homes.
