    From my experience children from divorce can be at higher risk of sexual abuse because the natural parent may be viewing a new partner through rose coloured glasses. Child molester are notorious forbeing charming. Plus the children may be easier to manipulate by their parents new partner as there may be a threat to their parent either physically or emotionally by the new partner.
