Do you inherit some kind of “divorce gene” if your parents divorce?

Is the tendency to divorce something that’s passed down in your genetic code, like the color of your hair or your fabulous musical talent?

Have you heard of “nesting” as a custody solution?

Are you trying to come up with a custody solution that really fits your children’s needs? Maybe you find it tough to pack everything up and move out of the house after your divorce. The kids really love the home, their friends, the neighborhood, their school, etc. They love having their own rooms where they feel comfortable and at home. You don’t want them to lose all of that.

Many children do face these changes in divorce. The parents sell the house and move into two new living situations. The kids go from one new home or apartment to the other. It’s a big change for them.
