An ideal answer will include
1) The biggest benefit of divorce is that it decreases the amount of stress that children undergo in a high-conflict atmosphere with emotional or physical abuse.
2) Children and young adults fare well if the ex-spouses maintain good communication with their children and each other; if the children are comfortable staying in both parents' homes; if they can spend a lot of time with their nonresident parent; and if a parent's relocation doesn't disrupt the children's everyday life.
3) Noncustodial fathers may spend more time with their children than they did before the divorce.
4) The major positive outcome for adults is ending a high-conflict marriage. Those who leave a violent or abusive marriage are physically and mentally stronger and, consequently, better able to establish a healthier relationship with their children.
