The Gender Gape

How a father's second marriage affects kids

(HealthDayNews) -- What's the effect on a child when the father remarries?

According to the Journal of Affective Disorders, it depends on the gender of the children.

Girls whose fathers haven't remarried are more likely to be depressed than those whose fathers have a second wife.

But boys with stepmothers are more likely to become depressed than those without stepmoms.
