Beyond the Average Divorce
 
 

Beyond the Average Divorce provides marriage and family scholars and students a rich depiction of how children and adults of all ages respond to diverse divorce experiences. Rather than emphasizing means and averages in looking at "typical" family reactions to divorce, authors David H. Demo and Mark A. Fine emphasize variability and change over time in the pre-divorce, divorce, and post-divorce process. The book′s three parts explore theoretical and methodological tools for studying divorce, the divorce process and its multiple pathways, and future directions in research.
