For the past few decades, the divorce rate in America has remained around 50 percent; although this rate has declined since 1990, it remains high. However, the Journal of Divorce reported that a study of 273 typical college students showed that even kids who have lived through multiple divorces still expect to get married. A comprehensive A-to-Z guide to the facts and myths, The Truth About Divorce explains the social, legal, and personal effects of divorce. Using straightforward prose while refraining from a pedantic tone, this valuable resource guides readers toward a greater understanding of the topic while providing effective strategies for coping. Self-tests, Fact or Fiction? sidebars, and up-to-date statistics and charts engage readers and encourage discussion both at home and in the classroom. Topics include blended families, child support, divorce in America, love and marriage, and relationship challenges.
