Connecticut children of divorce often succeed in their marriages

The decision whether to remain in an unhappy marriage is often a difficult one for Connecticut couples to make. When deciding if divorce is the best option, there are many things that the couple generally take into account. While financial implications may be an important consideration, how a divorce will affect the children is often a primary concern.

Many parents are hesitant to divorce because of their concern for the children. They often fear that a divorce will negatively affect the children and cause problems both now and in the future. However, research indicates that when children live in a household with parents who argue, they are more likely to be affected by this than by a divorce.

Additionally, even if the parents do not argue in front of the children, children are often perceptive and realize the tension that exists between their parents. One research study indicates that children who grow up in a home where the parents argued and then divorced were actually less likely to divorce once they married. It appears that these grown children of divorce recognize that their parents' divorces ended the cycle of tension and arguments in the family.

It is often difficult for children to understand when their parents seek a divorce. They often question why and wonder if there is something that they could have done to prevent it. However, when tension and arguments are prevalent in the Connecticut home, it appears that this more detrimental to the children and their future relationships.
