Parental Divorce, Life-Course Disruption, and Adult Depression.
Ross, Catherine E.; Mirowsky, John
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v61 n4 p1034-45 Nov 1999
Reports on a national sample of adults (N=2,592) surveyed on the association between adult depression and childhood parental divorce. Results suggest that parental divorce may disrupt a person's life course and create lifelong consequences for their well being, by lowering socioeconomic status and increasing problems in interpersonal relationships. No direct intrapsychic effects of parental divorce were found on adult depression. (Author/JDM)
