Like Walt stated it depends on the situation. If 1 parent isn't pulling their weight, is abusive or absent than something has to change. In an ideal world we'd all have a great mom and dad, nice house with the white picket fence and it never happens. From doing volunteer work in our lovely prisons it is very rare to speak with an inmate that had both parents home, off the top of my head I can think of none. A large percentage never met their real father and others are in the same prison with family members. Countless times I've heard that if my dad had been in the picture and kicked my *** I probably wouldn't be in prison. Those that went through the divorce do often blame themselves. What I found interesting was that often the remaining parent also blamed the child or children. I've talked with grown men that will never see freedom again say, I'm not sure what I did, but it made my dad split and mom beat my ***, until I just left. It's hard to consul or feel sorry for a guy who killed 3 people for $, but I've always wondered had the environment been different. Anyway it does something to kids even if it was for good reason

You need to research that question. Without evidence, it's just an opinion, and people's opinions are sketchy when it comes to the truth, dear.

Sure. Kids sometimes rationalized incorrectly and think their responsible. It is a high stress event in life.

Divorce is very bad for children because no matter what the parents say, the children will blame themselves for the divorce. It is very sad.

It depends on the situation.

I mean, a divorce would be better than (say) the mother staying in an abusive relationship "just for the kids".
