Really?! This item bears more watching - as the report of this new study doesn't provide much in the way of detail into the findings. Using conjecture, I can imagine the possibility where really happy teens might find it difficult to resolve conflict in marriage particularly if they have sailed through the adolescent years without ever learning how to do so. But, as a demographic whole, I can't really envision happiness in the teen years being the cause for later divorces. What do you think?
A recently conducted research by experts at the Cambridge University has reported that a healthy upbringing during teenage years might increases the probability of people getting divorced later on in life. To be precise the likelihood of people with a happy upbringing getting divorced later on in life is 60% more than others.
For the study, experts had carried out an assessment of 2776 people who were involved in a 1946 study carried out by British researchers. The scrutinized study was basically regarding the mental health being of people.
Following a proper analysis it was found by experts that youngsters who had a happy adolescence were more likely to get a divorce later on in life.
