Different Class Of People And Their Likely Marriage Outcome Revealed

A study has revealed the likely outcome of marriage of those whose parents are divorced and those who grew up in two-parent households.


The study by researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University and Lund University in Sweden has revealed that children of divorced parents are more likely to get divorced when compared to those who grew up in two-parent households.
According to the study, this increased tendency is caused by genetics and not psychological factors.
In the study published in the 2017 journal of Psychological Science, the researchers analysed Swedish population registries and found that people who were adopted resembled their biological but not adoptive parents and siblings in their histories of divorce.
In the study report, Jessica Salvatore, an Assistant Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University, said: “We were trying to answer the basic question: Why does divorce run in families?
“Across a series of designs using Swedish national registry data, we found consistent evidence that genetic factors primarily explained the intergenerational transmission of divorce.
“By recognising the role that genetics plays in the intergenerational transmission of divorce, therapists may be able to better identify more appropriate targets when helping distressed couples.
“Focusing on increasing commitment or strengthening interpersonal skills may not be a particularly good use of time for a therapist working with a distressed couple.
“At present, the bulk of evidence on why divorce runs in families points to the idea that growing up with divorced parents weakens your commitment to and the interpersonal skills needed for marriage.
“However, these previous studies haven’t adequately controlled for or examined something else in addition to the environment that divorcing parents transmit to their children: genes.
“For example, other research shows that people who are highly neurotic tend to perceive their partners as behaving more negatively than they objectively are [as rated by independent observers].
“So, addressing these underlying, personality-driven cognitive distortions through cognitive-behavioral approaches may be a better strategy than trying to foster commitment.”

  2. "The study by researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University and Lund University in Sweden has revealed that children of divorced parents are more likely to get divorced when compared to those who grew up in two-parent households"

    Absolutely true.
    And this is becos so many people are products of their immediate families.
    It takes the grace of God for children from divorced parents not to end up divorced themselves.
