Walker, Tavi R.; Ehrenberg, Marion F.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v13 n3 p320-42 Jul 1998
Explored relationship between undergraduate students' perceptions of the reasons for their parents' divorces and their own feelings of security in romantic relationships. Found that 73% described insecure attachment styles. Perceived reasons for divorce involving expressions of overt anger, involvement of children, and extramarital affairs were most important in differentiating secure and insecure young adults.
