Quiz: Divorce in the Family

Most children of divorce experience some difficulties in adjustment in the first 2 to 3 years following the divorce. But how well the parents adjust to the new living situation, and the degree of conflict between them, will influence how well the children adjust—and how long that adjustment takes.

Children always have significant, long-term difficulties when their parents divorce.
