- Myth: In the long run, divorces do not cause serious problems for children, who quickly recover from the experience of parental divorce.
- Fact: Divorces have very serious, long-lasting effects on children, for many of whom the consequences of divorce worsen as the children age.
- Myth: After a couple divorces, a woman's standard of living will fall by an average of 73 percent, while a man's standard of living will rise by about 42 percent.
- Myth: It is better for children whose parents do not get along if the parents divorced than if they stay together.
