When a marriage comes to an end in Denver, the lives of everyone involved change dramatically. While some people are able to put aside their differences and maintain an amicable rapport, others have a contentious relationship. At Frost & Beck, P.C., we understand that there is a lot at stake with your divorce and that getting through it with as little stress as possible is important to you.
While your divorce may be difficult for you, it may be even more so for your children. According to Newsweek, a new study has taken a look at how parents’ behavior toward each other after divorce affect the long-term health of their children. Perhaps not surprisingly, parents who divorce but remain friendly toward one another may be better able to provide their children with emotional support. Children whose parents remain adversarial may suffer more psychologically and this in turn can have an effect on their immune system.
The study found that children whose parents divorce and were bitter and hostile toward one another were three times more likely to catch a cold as an adult. In drawing their conclusions, researchers examined 201 adults and categorized them according to whether their parents divorced and were contentious, divorced and were friendly or stayed together.
For many reasons, not just the health of your children, it is generally best for everyone involved if your divorce matters are handled in a civilized and non-adversarial way. For more information on how to have an amicable split, please visit our web page.
