Divorce between spouses usually results in a way that one party wins and the individual who desires to get a divorce becomes the winner. However, children lose under any circumstances because they love both sides and they do not want to get separated from their parents. If parents are divorced, it is generally expected from children to adapt to this process. Even in most cases, parents are not even aware of the effects of a divorce on children. In fact, parents' divorce has long-term effects on children. Children and adolescents who have successfully get over the divorce of their parents during childhood and adolescence may have problems because they have witnessed their parents' divorce and do not believe in love in the future when they form their own family. The purpose of this study is to examine future family planning considerations of young and college-age adults and young and college-age adults who are growing up in divorced families. The main question of the study is to examine and compare the effects of parental divorce on children with the control group (teenagers who are full-grown) together with their influence on their future family-building thoughts. It was found that young and college-age adults who are raised in divorced families display more rejecting attitudes in the future than their young college adults in their own marriage mentality.
