Long Term Consequences of Divorce According To Wallersteins, Hetherington and Amato
Wallerstein concluded in her study that divorce is a devastating event for adults and children and divorce experience is a continuum that begins in an unhappy home and extends through the formal divorce. Thus, its effects are long-lasting and children are affected because divorce happens during their formative years. The separation of their parents inculcate in their their inner world a certain view of themselves and society.
Wallerstein claimed that many of the children of divorced parents become compassionate, competent, and courageous adults, but in her study, almost fifty percent of the children became self-deprecating, angry, and under-achieving adults.
