Broken Homes, Broken Children?

“Loss of trust is another factor. Whenever couple losses trust to each other they end up in divorce. Trust is an important factor in a marriage, if a person losses trust to his/her partner, the person either ends up getting a divorce or he/she chooses to have an affair, first then ends up in divorce.Inability to manage or resolve a conflict is also one of the causes, in this situation both the husband and the wife fight about something but is unable to resolve it.This makes the couple thick that they are incompatible in many ways and how much they try to resolve their incompatibility nothing will happen because they will both end up fighting again.”


Children growing up in single-parent families are twice as likely as their counterparts to develop serious psychiatric illnesses and addictions later in life, according to an important new study.

Researchers have for years debated whether children from broken homes bounce back or whether they are more likely than kids whose parents stay together to develop serious emotional problems.

Experts say the latest study, published this week in The Lancet medical journal, is important mainly because of its unprecedented scale and follow-up — it tracked about 1 million children for a decade, into their mid-20s.

The question of why and how those children end up with such problems remains unanswered. The study suggests that financial hardship may play a role, but other experts say the research also supports the view that quality of parenting could be a factor.

The study used the Swedish national registries, which cover almost the entire population and contain extensive socio-economic and health information. Children were considered to be living in a single-parent household if they were living with the same single adult in both the 1985 and 1990 housing census. That could have been the result of divorce, separation, death of a parent, out of wedlock birth, guardianship or other reasons.
