Parents' Divorce Doesn't Harm College-Age Kids
Date:2/24/2010

Study found those students as happy as others

WEDNESDAY, Feb. 24 (HealthDay News) -- University students whose parents have recently divorced are unscathed by the experience, an English study finds.

University of Warwick researchers assessed the productivity and happiness of 270 students, and found little difference between students of recently divorced parents and other students. In fact, some male students actually had higher productivity following their parents' divorce.

"University students are much more resilient than has been presumed. Although parents do worry about divorcing around the years that their children go to university, our tests suggest those children turn out to be just as happy as other students," researcher Dr. Eugenio Proto said in a news release.

"Given the large number of university students throughout the industrialized world who have recently divorced parents, our results can only be reassuring news for concerned parents and students alike," added fellow researcher Daniel Sgroi.
