25 years of divorce in Ireland: What does the study say about its impact on children?

The last divorce law was enacted in Ireland at the end of February, 25 years ago. Despite dire warnings at the time that divorce would be the death knell for family life as we know it, the divorce rate in Ireland was still far below the EU average. However, a large body of research (usually from the US, where divorce rates are higher than the EU average) shows that divorce has a negative impact on children and adolescents.

or for example, research has consistently found that children and adolescents from divorced families do worse on average than children from intact “nuclear” families. In the United States, this is reflected in estimates that children of divorced parents have an 8 percent lower probability of completing high school and a 12 percent lower probability of entering college. On a more positive note, a study has shown that children from high-conflict families (before divorce) can do better academically after divorce.
