Abstract

Divorce can be a highly devastating and pivotal event in a person’s life. Often it can be liberating, but the after effects can also be quite negative. Prior research indicates that divorce has financial and emotional consequences, and may produce challenges to parenting. Consequently many people often face more hardships being divorced than they did while being married. In this study survey researches as well as semi-structured interviews with divorced couples are used to examine gender differences in post-divorce adjustment. The results show that men and women cope with divorce rather similarly, but vary in certain categories.
