Good article which sums of research findings about how children of divorce function in intimate relationships as adults. Interesting to see how different the Findings of the studies are by researcher.

Intimacy problems are looked at through relationships with parents, or lack of relationship, gender differences. I like the section on trust. That always seem to be the actual word that adult children of divorce use, in my experience which, admittedly, is not vast.

Interesting that one study found that girls often rush into relationships and marriages and repeat whatever negative relationships they had with their fathers. Boys are more aloof and less inclined to rush into relationships. These are generallyconsidered the two different trauma responses of rape survivors.
