The Marriages and Divorces of the Children of Divorce.
Glenn, Norval D.; Kramer, Kathryn B.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n4 p811-25 Nov 1987
Analyzed national survey data from 1973 through 1985 to estimate divorce-proneness of offspring of divorced parents. For White females, effect was substantial and statistically significant; other race-sex categories showed moderate effects. Possible explanations for intergenerational transmission of divorce-proneness include lower commitment to marriage and tendency for children of divorce to marry at early age. (Author/KS)
