  • Oh, how nice it would be for ALL parents to set such an example for their children. What percent of couples with children are happy, I wonder?

  • It’s actually fairly high at any given time, and Census data that follows up individuals over time reveals that 80% of unhappy marriages are happy marriages five years later and the individuals in them are happier than those whose unhappy marriages led to divorce in that time.
    For couples with kids, getting divorced seems to increase the odds of a lot of kid problems. I was just reading the list at http://www.fatherhood.org/media/consequences-of-father-absence-statistics earlier tonight. Lots of surprises in there, studies I had not seen yet.
