The research dealt with adjustment to divorce among men who immigrated to Israel from Ethiopia versus Israeli-born men. In addition, we examined whether there were differences between the two groups of divorcés with regard to coping resources that explain adjustment to divorce. Three types of resources were examined: personal resources (level of education, and self-assessed income); interpersonal resources (quality of the relationship with the ex-spouse, the existence of a new romantic relationship, and the fathers' involvement in their children's lives); and environmental resources (formal and informal social support). Adjustment in the dimension of self-acceptance of divorce was lower among the Ethiopian immigrant men than among their Israeli-born counterparts. The Israeli-born men were found to be more involved in their children's lives than the Ethiopian immigrants.
