Just read the abstract for a study associated with the National Survey of Children called “Long term effects of parental divorce on parent-child relationships, adjustment, and achievement in young adulthood.”. Authors are Nicholas Zill, Donna K. Morrison, and Mary J. Coiro.

Journal of family relationships,vol.7 (1) jun 1993

In 18-22 year olds negative relationships were reported in 65 percent of Fathers and 30 Percent of Mothers. 25 percent had dropped out of high school. 40 percent had received psych help. These numbers are apparently twice what they are for the same age groups even when adjusted for demographics and socioeconomics.
