    Married and Split

    They had been married and lived together for a long time, having me at age 29 I think, when they'd got together early on at university. Divorced when I was 1.

    Married, split when I was 17.

    I would suggest that, while there might be something in your theory, there are also lots of other reasons why people do or don't stay together than the bond of either children or marriage, and perhaps your survey won't really shine any light on this. Not sure what this research is for, or what the scope of it is, but I would suggest that some qualitative interviews with couples who fit into the various outcomes of your thesis would be helpful.
