English Divorces Can be Uncivilized, Actually
A new study out of London has indicated that a bitter divorce in England means that one in three children will permanently lose touch with a parent, usually the father.
The research also showed that one in five parents said that their primary objective during separation was to make the experience “as unpleasant as possible” for their former spouse. As a result, 20% of the children involved said that they “felt used” by their parents, with 33% feeling isolated and lonely. Half of parents involved said that they had sought a day in court to argue over residency arrangements despite knowing it made matters worse for their children.
The study involved interviews with 4,000 parents and children who had been through divorce. Between 15,000 and 20,000 English couples go to court to resolve child access disputes each year.
