Role of the Father-Adolescent Relationship in Shaping Adolescents' Attitudes Toward Divorce

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Risch, S.C., K.M. Jodl, and Jacquelynne S. Eccles. 2004. "Role of the Father-Adolescent Relationship in Shaping Adolescents' Attitudes Toward Divorce." Journal of Marriage and the Family, 66(1): 46-58.

The quality of father-adolescent relationships, especially for nontraditional fathers, has been neglected in investigating adolescents' beliefs. Closeness of father-adolescent relationships was examined as a predictor of adolescents' attitudes toward divorce. A sample of European and African American adolescents (N = 300) reported on the quality of father-adolescent relationships in 11th grade and their attitudes toward divorce at age 19. Boys who felt close to their biological custodial fathers, biological noncustodial fathers, and stepfathers felt less likely to divorce in the future than boys who did not feel close to their fathers. The same was not true for girls. Feeling close to a father-regardless of father type-is associated with boys' confidence in the stability of their future marriages.
