CHILDREN NOT HAPPIER AFTER DIVORCE


"One of the many myths of our culture is that divorce automatically rescues children from an unhappy marriage . . . However, when one looks at the thousands of children that my colleagues and I have interviewed at our center since 1980, most of whom were from moderately unhappy marriages that ended in divorce, one message is clear: the children do not say they are happier. Rather, they say flatly, 'The day my parents divorced is the day my childhood ended.'"
