Jacquet, E.; Surra Catherine A.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v63 n3 p627-38 Aug 2001
Parental divorce is thought to affect romantic relationships of young adults, especially with respect to certainty about relationships and perceptions of problems in relationships. This study examined these connections with a random sample of 464 coupled partners. Young adults who were casually dating showed the strongest effects of divorce, suggesting repercussions may be in place before romantic relationships are formed. (BF)
