Devine, Danielle; Forehand, Rex
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v64 n2 p424-27 Apr 1996
Examined marital and child factors in predicting divorce potential and divorce occurrence. Participants included 140 adolescents and their parents. For both parents, lower levels of marital satisfaction predicted higher levels of divorce potential. In turn, divorce potential predicted greater likelihood for divorce up to seven years later. No child-related variables predicted divorce potential or divorce occurrence. (KW)
