Marriage & Divorce
Marriages are known to be a lifetime commitment towards love & caring among
people. However most marriages these days seem to be failing due to the increasing
number of problems with the modern world. When these marriages end, the effects can
Why do people get married? Well it is a known tradition in humanity that a
woman and man will come together and live their lives as one. The most important
element that seems to have disappeared is love. Not just any love, but true, deep feeling
love. To keep a relationship clear, the love itself should be clear, not artificially placed. If
there is no well defined understanding of love, then is should obviously not be a
marriage. In some traditions, they have what is known as an arranged marriage. This is
the process where love is somewhat "forced" to exist between 2 people.
The usual process goes like this: two people meet, find out if they are compatible
or not, then engage themselves for marriage. This is a typical procedure but why should
they rush into it if they are not aware of the affects that would arise if the marriage were
to break apart? The causes of failing marriages can range from a small dispute over a $10
credit card bill to a serious case of adultery.
Sometimes everything could be on the right track until someone has to cause a
slight problem. These problems accumulate and can make a disaster of what was
supposed to be a lifetime commitment. A husband's hormones may have been a little too
active with his secretary at work, that one night at the office, he has sex with her. A wife
can equally commit this form of adultery. Adultery is one of the most popular reasons for
most divorces to occur, and it usually has the worst outcome as well. These include
physical and verbal fights, splitting of family including children, law suites, and much
Financial problems can also end a good marriage. This cause leads to fights on
spending too much money, making a bad investment, and purchasing useless things.
Being stingy can also be another bad reason. No matter what the reason is, the causes of
failing marriages & divorces are practically endless, and so are the effects. It's amazing
on how little effort the effects need to destroy what is supposed to be "lifetime
There are several other reasons why marriages end; yet the most devastating are
the unexpected problems such as health deterioration. Several families have a sick parent
that could be dying. In this case the parent that is not ill should be courteous and take care
of their partner in love, but modern days give women to be their own spirit that would
rather get a new life than stay with a husband that will sooner or later die. People these
days are very selfish and they would rather continue their life without depression. Health
deterioration can occur at a young age, and that usually hurts more.
Physical illness is pretty bad as well. If a man is impotent or a woman infertile,
this means that cannot conceive a child. Some people believe that the main reason for
marriage is to have children, and if there is no potential of having children, then why
should they stay together?
Some effects of failing marriages are among the splitting couple, but the worst bit
is the children. Children suffer the most especially when they are young because they are
being pulled left and right by parents. The love they get is coming from two different
directions, and the kids may end up getting into heavy drugs, prostitution, and gangs. To
some people marriages could be better if they are over. Regardless of age, race, sex or
religion, divorce has devastating, often long-term, consequences. The immediate effects
of divorce, such as hurt, anger and confusion, are evident in both children and adults. The...
