Delayed Parental Divorce: How Much Do Children Benefit?
Furstenberg, Frank F.; Kiernan, Kathleen E.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v63 n2 p446-57 May 2001
Compares children who experience divorce in childhood with those who were young adults when their parents divorced using data on British children (N=11,409) who participated in the National Child Development Study. Children's long-term welfare appears to be linked both to conditions preceding and following the divorce event. Results suggest caution in drawing conclusions about average effects of divorce. (JDM)
