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.
