Dating a child of divorce

Thus the more common divorce and rejection is among adults, the more the attitudes and expectations of rejection are mainstreamed among children, even those raised in intact married families.

and those who casually date exhibit “the strongest effects of parental divorce, suggesting that the repercussions of parental divorce may be in place before the young adults form their own romantic relationships.” The divorce of their parents makes dating and romance more difficult for children as they reach adulthood.

Parental divorce horrifies young adults’ heterosexual relationship experiences though the connection is more evident for women than for men, according to one study.

One study showed that individuals whose parents divorced were more likely than individuals whose parents remained married to believe that relationships were beset by infidelity and the absence of trust, and they were also more likely to believe that relationships should be approached with caution.

In Sweden, where parental rejection is very high, no significant differences were found between individuals from divorced and intact families in their attitudes towards marriage and divorce.

Children from divorced families are more tolerant of divorce than are children from intact families, though this is only likely if their parents had remarried.

Without remarriage, the effect on their views of divorce was not significant.

Persons raised in divorced families tend to have less positive attitudes towards marriage, and more positive attitudes towards divorce.

This negative attitude about marriage leads to decreased commitment to romantic relationships, which in turn is related to lower relationship quality.

These positive attitudes towards divorce affect not only likelihood of divorce, but also overall relationship quality.
