And then whose house you were at changed your whole weekend.
Your sense of 'home' got so misconstrued because you were constantly bouncing between two houses and two families.
you're in love with a child of divorce, are you? Only in later adult life, do kids of divorce really start to see the less-immediate effects that their parent's separation caused them.
This negative attitude about marriage leads to decreased commitment to romantic relationships, which in turn is related to lower relationship quality.

Adult male children of divorced parents show more ambivalence than men from intact families about becoming involved in a relationship, though they invest more money and tangible goods in casual dating relationships.
If you've grown up with divorced parents, you've probably heard the thoughts that others have on the subject.
But if you haven't grown up in a split home, you don't even know the half of it.
