Amato, Paul R.; Booth, Alan
Social Forces, v69 n3 p895-914 Mar 1991
Among 1,243 adults nationwide, individuals who experienced parental divorce as children scored lower than those from happily intact families of origin on measures of psychological, social, and marital well-being. Multiple parental divorces and divorces involving deterioration of parent-child relations appeared particularly problematic. Contains 39 references. (Author/SV)
