The Relentless Search for Effects of Divorce: Forging New Trails or Tumbling down the Beaten Path?
Demo, David H.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n1 p42-45 Feb 1993
Responds to previous article by Amato on children's adjustment to divorce. Cites number of serious limitations including problems in language and logic of hypothesis-testing, in derivation of hypotheses, and in interpretation and assessment of accumulated evidence. Finds Amato's basic premise--that children of divorce suffer lifelong adjustment problems--particularly troubling. (NB)
