Abstract

Prior research indicates that children of divorce are more likely to struggle in developing meaningful and lasting relationships. Children of divorce also struggle more in school and score lower on measures of psychological adjustment. This study looks to see if these negative impacts of divorce are evident in young adults. Survey responses from a 170 college students at Western Oregon University are analyzed. Results compare the financial, psychological and relationship success of adults whose parents divorced with those whose parents did not divorce.
