The Long-Term Effects of Parental Divorce on the Mental Health of Young Adults: A Developmental Perspective.
Chase-Lansdale, P. Lindsay; And Others
Child Development, v66 n6 p1614-34 Dec 1995
Examined effects on young adults (23 years) of parental divorce during childhood and adolescence using data from Britain's longitudinal National Child Development study. Found that divorce had a moderate, long-term negative impact on young adults' mental health; the relative risk of serious emotional disorders increased in the aftermath of divorce, but most subjects did not exhibit such risks.
