Remarriage and Its Alternatives Following Divorce: Mother and Child Adjustment.
Isaacs, Marla Beth; Leon, George H.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v14 n2 p163-73 Apr 1988
Examined the effects of various forms of new parental relationships following separation, on children's and mothers' adjustment. Found children's adjustment best with mothers not seriously romantically involved and with remarried mothers. Demonstrated that mothers' living with new partners but not married to them had a statistically significant deleterious effect on children's behavior and social competence. (Author/KS)
