Here’s how divorce can affect the children’s intimate relationships

What you need to know:

  • Research shows that girls whose parents are divorced tend to yearn for more affection in adulthood than others.
  • They may, as a result, get into intimate relationships early. Some also marry young.
  • This could be because the parents’ disagreement and divorce denied the girl a chance to grow their affection through a relationship with their fathers.

We now know that adult children of divorced parents may not have normal intimate relationships, and that their sexual experiences may be different.
