Despite efforts over the years to curb divorce rates in America, nearly half of all marriages now end in divorce. The question of just how devastating the effects of divorce are to adults, children, and society will be explored, as well as a consideration of the attempts that have been made to soften these effects.
"The author is thorough in her consideration of child custody, financial support, and the consequences of divorce for children, citing studies and court cases as she traces its increasing occurrence and broad societal effects."
