Not sheepish, but individ-ewe-al

Although... this is interesting. 'Everyone knew' that divorce was a risk for parents whose child had cancer, because of the stress of dealing with the child's cancer. Then one of the Nordic countries did a population level study, where they looked at divorce rates in the parents of children with cancer (they had amazing data linkage from hospital records to birth certificates to marriage and divorce) And they found it wasn't statistically significantly different to the divorce rates in the population without cancer. Which definitely doesn't mean we shouldn't provide support and counsilling for parents whose kids have cancer, but it does mean that the common wisdom of 'what everyone knows' can be misleading - if divorce is quite common, then people will see cancer patients divorcing and put on extra support for them. (Warning, this anecdote based on a poster I read about 5 years ago, my brain thinks it's true, but it is fuzzy in my memory now)
