AbstractThis study examined whether young adults with a background of parental divorce differed in their attitudes toward marriage and divorce from young adults from maritally intact families. The study utilized data obtained from a survey questionnaire which provided demographic information as well as data on attitudes toward marriage and divorce. The sample population consisted of 152 University of Arizona undergraduate students ages 18-25. Data were analyzed using the Analysis of Variance Method with the results indicating that family structure (maritally disrupted versus intact) was insignificant as a predictor of young adults' attitudes toward marriage and divorce.
