Clearly this chap did well in the end anyway but it certainly appears that his parents divorcing at a sensitive time in his life has had a lasting effect on him. It is so often the children who suffer in divorce - whilst the parents are busy tearing each other apart, the children seem to be forgotten. It is always worth considering collaborative law as a means of "conscious uncoupling" so that the parties can try to keep a measure of mutual respect in the whole process thus protecting not only themselves but definitely the children.
