Children from divorced home shows more evidence of emotional problems prior to divorced Cherlin et al.(1998). The author of this research also found that the gap tend to occur in families that are troubled and become wider after divorce. This indeed causes dissatisfaction and unhappiness. Growing up in a non-intact family can be associated with short and long term problems. Such problem could be mental health and their interaction with their environment.
