The study also concludes that there was a positive significant correlation between parental divorce and emotional wellbeing. It can also be concluded that there is a positive relationship between parental divorce and spiritual wellbeing. The study further concludes that parental divorce appears to lower the well-being of children. The study further concludes that the estimated effects are generally strong. These strong effect sizes can be interpreted in two ways. The study recommends that in future studies, it would be important to account for a complete list of different family structures. For example, we could include same-sex families. In the current study we only accounted for single, married and divorced families which may have limited participants’ options if they described their family structure in a different manner. Also, for researchers interested in family relationships and attitudes, it is important to collect data from a diverse population of participants.
