Implications of divorce


Divorce (גירושין) brings a variety of long-term economic, social, physical, and mental health consequences , although the full extent of such effects remains hotly debated. Comparisons of life outcomes or well-being along the simple divorced/not divorced axis  always show poorer outcomes for the group which is composed entirely of unhappy couples, telling simply that being part of a happy couple is better than being part of an unhappy one.
Children of divorced parents are reported to have a higher chance of behavioral problems than those of non-divorced parents (a mix of happy and unhappy families). Studies have also reported the former to be more likely to suffer abuse than children in intact families, and to have a greater chance of living in poverty.All children of divorced parents had lived in unhappy homes, they unsurprisingly reported numerous unhappy experiences.  A peaceful divorce will naturally have less of an impact on children, disregarding of course external factors such as how attached children are to each parent, the visitation rights arranged, and the general environment the children are brought up in.
many health related problems that may arise are:
  • cancer
  • stroke
  • heart problems
  • sexually transmitted diseases
  • rheumatoid arthritis
