Studies Show Adoption Could Put People at A Higher Risk for Divorce

Adoption And Divorce

It is widely recognized in academic studies that children of divorced parents are more likely to get divorced down the road, when compared with children whose parents stayed together.

Plenty of research has examined the connections between a broad range of different factors and someone’s likelihood to divorce in the future. Nurture and not nature has been named as the primary foundation for any influence from childhood to adulthood, but a new study questions that belief.

Likelihood Of Divorce For Adopted Children

A new study published in Psychological Science indicates that this might have more to do with genes than environmental factors. The study found that the likelihood of children who were adopted, to get divorced in the future reflected the experience of biological parents instead of adopted ones.

Swedish National Registry data was used to analyze this connection, and found that genetic factors primarily explained whether or not divorce was transmitted from one generation to another, as far as likelihood. The researchers who completed the study suggested that these results could help therapists in the future who are in the position of helping couples who are struggling to figure out how to make things work.

Previous Research On Marital Breakdown

It may not, in fact, according to previous research, be due to witnessing the breakdown of a parent’s marriage during growing up. In fact, there may be genetic factors at play that could be used by a therapist to help him or her chart a better path for the future of the couple that is currently struggling in their marriage.

It was recommended to me that I get in touch with Mary Katherine through an acquaintance who works in the field. I can confidently say it was one of the best decisions I had made. I went through a complicated separation process and custody battle over my two year old son; my case was extremely challenging and before I retained the services of Mary Katherine it seemed as though all was lost. Mary Katherine and Eoin O' Mahony worked tirelessly on my case and managed to guarantee my access to my son and reach an agreement that protected my relationship with him and secured my status as his father. They did so with the utmost of professionalism, compassion, and generosity. I truly cannot recommend her warmly enough.
