The present study examined how tolerance toward nontraditional family forms relates to family structure, by examining differences between youngsters and parents from intact and postdivorce families. We also explored whether intergenerational transmission of attitudes toward nontraditional family forms differed between intact and postdivorce families. We made use of three-wave longitudinal data of 959 adolescents and young adults aged 12 years to 24 years at the first wave, and also of one of the parents. Longitudinal multilevel analyses revealed that both youngsters and parents of postdivorce families are more tolerant toward nontraditional family forms and that parental attitude transmission is significantly lower in families after a divorce. Results apply to respondents of a broad age range. Several explanations are suggested for the flawed intergenerational transmission of attitudes in postdivorce families.
