Thesis

The relationship between divorce during childhood or adolescence and attitudes toward marriage in adulthood

The following study sought to examine the relationship between parental divorce during childhood or adolescence and the possible effects on attitudes toward marriage in adulthood. I hypothesized that individuals who experienced divorce during childhood or adolescence would have more negative attitudes towards marriage and relationships in adulthood, as compared to participants who did not experience divorce during childhood or adolescence. I also hypothesized that individuals who experienced divorce during childhood or adolescence would be more likely to have an insecure attachment style as compared to participants who did not experience divorce. Results of this study did not support either of these hypotheses.
