Human capital and the probability of divorce

Ori Zax ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Concern about the high poverty rates experienced by children in female-headed households has led to policies aimed at increasing these households' income. In this paper we present a model that analyzes decisions made before and during marriage to invest in the human capital of parents and children. These decisions result from a variety of anticipated post-divorce monetary transfers between spouses.
