Abstract

The impact of parental separation and divorce on adopted and nonadopted children was examined. Although children from nonintact homes showed poorer adjustment than did children from intact homes, the results were comparable for adoptees and nonadoptees. In addition, life stress associated with marital disruption was found to account for the majority of children's adjustment problems.
