This research studies the coping mechanisms employed by young adults after experiencing parental divorce. The study adopts a qualitative approach as it builds upon the interviews of the participants. The interviews include semi structured questions to gain richer insights into the experience of the participants. The participants for this research include six young adults from middle class socio-economic backgrounds, between the ages of 20 - 35. The reason behind setting this particular age bracket is because the research is based on young adults. Additionally, the sample of this research included an equal number of both genders. The results of this research are analyzed as themes and subthemes highlighting varying coping mechanisms and experiences of each participant. It is hoped that these insights would initiate further research and conversation around divorce in Pakistan and assist young adults to cope well during parental divorce.
