New study says divorce could be linked to genetics


Divorce may be in our DNA. 

Past studies have implied that divorce runs in families because children of divorced parents don’t learn how to manage conflict and commitment.

But, researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University suggest genetics play a much larger role.

They found people who were adopted had a divorce history that resembled their biological, not adoptive, parents and siblings.

Experts say these findings could help therapists focus on basic personality traits genetically linked to divorce.
