Poster Presentation

Abstract

This study examines the sociological question of whether an individual’s lifestyle and personal relationships are affected by parental divorce, and if so, in what ways. Prior studies conducted have found mixed results answering these research questions, indicating further research may need to be done to increase understanding. Fifteen individuals were interviewed in this study, eight being from divorced households and seven being from intact households. Results were compared between the two groups, and areas of interest included academic achievement, parental involvement, romantic relationships, parent-child relationships, and views on marriage and divorce. A variety of responses from participants were recorded, showing a diverse group of impacts placed on children experiencing parental divorce compared to individuals from intact families.
