The latest divorce statistics show that the divorce rate has been rising and each year a lot of children have broken homes. Study after study has told us of the terrible emotional scars that can be left by divorce. But what we rarely hear is that once the emotional tension starts to fall, those scars can heal pretty well. Many children are relieved when their parents split up and pleased when they settle down with someone new. Tradition has it that children hate their "wicked stepmother" and step-siblings, but is it really true?

No family relationships can ever be the same after divorce, but it way be that there are some positive aspects for children in gaining stepparents and new brothers and sisters. Children become emotionally mature (that often happens rather quickly) and more sensitive,more responsible.

Not all children are crushed by divorce:ever-adaptable, they settle into the new pattern of family life. Becky Branford's experience in this matter was very fortunate. Her parents split when she was eleven. Her father, Nick, moved out, and her stepdad, Ralph, moved in. It took time for the new family unit to settle down. Initially Ralph and Becky's younger brother, Matthew, found it difficult to get on. "But quite quickly everything got better," says Becky Branford, who is now 28. "There were no rows and there was no tension. My bad bought a flat nearby and became reincorporated into the family. He had a turn cooking a meal each week at the family home and walking the dog."

Now the Branfords function as a family of five. Out of a difficult situation they managed to create a new- and very happy- family. Becky says she feels that she has three parents. "We often go for the evening together now, and Ralph and dad joke about who should sit at the head of the table. Dad my dad, bur Ralph is also very important. Ralph is the opposite of my bad. He is quite emotional and was good when we were growing up. I felt able to confide in him about boyfriends in a way I couldn't with my parents. He made my adolescence more enjoyable than it would have been without him."

Becky Branford's family was unusual in moulding so well in its new form as her father did not remarry. Things usually tend to change after a divorce when both husband and wife have a new partner. While someone is single, their former husband or wify may feel responsible for them and the children and that creates tensions on both sides. But once they are settled in their new relationships things tend to relax, which makes it easier for the children. If a couple can be sensitive and generous in their dealings with one another, the children will find it much easier to settle and can even gain from having four loving parents around them. Divorce can be horrible at the time, but its not the end of the world.

Which of the following statements are true and which are false?

  1. All children suffer from the divorce.

  2. Becky’s father and stepfather have good relations.

  3. Becky has got tense relations with Ralph.

  4. Becky’s parents divorced when she was 28.

  5. It took a lot of time for Becky and her brother to get on with their new stepfather.

  6. There were sometimes scandals in Becky’s new family.

  7. Becky could share secrets with Ralph about her boyfriends.

  8. Becky’s father married for the second time.

  9. There can be a lot of good things about the divorce, it’s not the end of the world.
