It is very common for feuding spouses to stay together for the sake of their children. Instead of seeking a divorce in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court in Broward County, spouses stay married despite their growing disdain for one another. Psychologists from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties have all studied the disconcerting effects divorce has on the kids. However, new research has led many Fort Lauderdale couples to file for divorce despite their children because staying together may have more damning effects than breaking apart.
Studies from the past have concluded that children of divorced parents are more likely to have lower grades, have high risk of health issues, and are more likely to become the victim of child molestation. On top of these risks, there are emotional damages as well, feelings of guild and abandonment.
Today Show psychologist correspondent Robi Ludwig, reached the conclusion that divorce is sometimes a good thing for the kids. When parents who are involved in a high-conflict marriage, where there is a lot of yelling and arguing, stay together, the children are deeply affected. The constant arguing causes the children to feel stressed out. Moreover, it leads them to feel ignored because their parents are continuously absorbed in their own contentious battle. The children start to feel that their needs are not being met at home. All of these emotions and feelings led the children to engage in dysfunctional behaviors.
