The Impact of Parental Divorce on Children's Educational Attainment, Marital Timing, and Likelihood of Divorce.
Keith, Verna M.; Finlay, Barbara
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n3 p797-809 Aug 1988
Examined combined sample of national data to determine impact of parental divorce on children. Found parental divorce associated with lower educational attainment and earlier age at marriage for sons and daughters. Daughters of divorced parents had higher probability of being divorced. For sons of divorced parents, probability of ever marrying and of divorcing was mediated by social class variables. (Author/NB)
