STUDY Says, Children Reduces Divorce Risks


You can blame your siblings for a lot of things, but you might not be able to blame them for the breakup of your marriage. A new study has found each sibling you have (up to seven) reduces your divorce risk by about 2 percent. While study co-author Doug Downey, an Ohio State University sociologist, says the number of siblings is not the most important factor in determining someone?s risk for divorce, it is, he says, ?a factor.? While further research is needed to validate the findings and determine why they may hold, the authors say it may be that siblings help develop the social skills needed to make a marriage work.
