The cost of divorce

The BBC has this:

Divorce has a lingering, detrimental impact on health that even remarriage cannot fully repair, a study suggests.

A Chicago study involving 8,652 people aged 51 to 61 found divorced people have 20% more chronic illnesses such as cancer than those who never marry.

The figure only drops to 12% for those who remarry, researchers write in the Journal of Health and Social Behaviour. . . . .

Not to mention the children of said divorcees. I wonder if they have more health related problems? I also wonder how this compares to societies where they are a high percentage of out of wedlock births where marriage tends to be eschewed.
