Washington: Divorce is associated with an increased risk of future depressive episodes but this is only in the case of those who already have a history of depression, a new study suggests."Stressful life events like divorce are associated with significant risk for prolonged emotional distress, including clinically-significant depression," psychological scientist and lead researcher David Sbarra of the University of Arizona, said."At the same time, we know from considerable research that the experience of divorce is non-random. Some people are much greater risk for experiencing a divorce than other people," he said.This led Sbarra and colleagues to wonder: Is it divorce, or the factors leading to divorce - such as marital discord, neuroticism, or hostility - that increases the risk for depression?
