    Abstract:
    This study examines main effect and interactive models of the relations between marital conflict, divorce, and parent - adult child relationships and gender differences in these relations. Data were drawn from a longitudinal study of a community sample (N = 585). Parental marital conflict and divorce were measured from age 5 through age 17 years. Mother-child and father-child relationship quality at age 22 years was assessed in terms of closeness-support and conflict-control. Results indicated that both marital conflict and divorce are associated with poorer quality parent - adult child relationships. Divorce moderated the link between marital conflict and subsequent negativity in mother-child relationships, with the estimated effects being stronger in continuously married families than in divorced families, especially for women.
