Children of Mothers with Adverse Childhood Experiences Show More Disruptive Behaviors

Researchers have found a link between a mother's report of her own adverse childhood experiences and increasing disruptive behavior on the part of her own child up to the age of 4½ years-and marital conflict may be the pathway between the two.

Cohabitation and Intimate Partner Violence During Emerging Adulthood

In recent years, a majority of young adults experience cohabitation. Nevertheless, cohabitation is a risk factor for intimate partner violence (IPV). This study found that socio-demographic characteristics, relationship commitment, quality, and constraints as well as prior experience with violence (in prior relationships and family of origin) were associated with IPV, but did not explain the association between cohabitation and IPV.

Center on Hispanic Children and Families

Family Structure and Family Formation among Low-Income Hispanics in the U.S.

There have been dramatic changes in the structure of families in the U.S. over the past several decades. Fewer couples are getting married, while more are cohabiting and having children outside of marriage. Additionally, men are increasingly fathering children with more than one woman (“multiple-partner fertility”).

In particular, family structure among Hispanics—the largest and one of the fastest growing racial/ethnic minority groups in the U.S.—is less understood than that of some other groups. This is a critical knowledge gap, as Hispanics currently make up 17 percent of the U.S. population and 25 percent of children under age 18.
