An unfair reality –children of divorce are more likely to divorce as adults. Until recently, it was believed this was due completely to nurture, not nature.

The case for nurture: Children of divorce learn relationship skills and conflict management skills from their parents. Children who grow up with parents who do not handle conflict well are more likely to repeat that same behavior as adults. Divorcing parents also affect how their children feel about commitment. Even in early relationships, these children tend to have less positive views on marriage, a lower level of commitment to their partner and a much more pessimistic view about their relationship compared to a child in a two-parent home.
