Cause and Effect Of Divorce

People all over the world have determined to live together, which is called “marriage” in another words, so that they can depend on each other. Nevertheless, some couples are unable to maintain their relationship so they choose divorce, which is one of the solutions to cope with the problems between husband and wife. Most people think carefully before they get married. However, the divorce rates tend to continually increase now days. There are three main causes of divorce: changing woman’s roles, stress in modern living and lack of communication.

The first significant cause of increasing rates in divorce is that women completely change in roles. In the past, men have to earn the money to afford the expense of family, where woman only do housework, women have no money so they're having to depend on the husbands’ money. Because of these situations, it is too difficult for most women to separate from their husbands. These situations entirely change now days. The equality between men and women in roles are very clear at the moment, women can work outside to earn money, while men share the household tasks such as cooking, cleaning, washing as well as caring for children. It can be clearly seen that women are independent from money as they can earn money by themselves to support their living cost. Accordingly, the divorce rates recently rise.

Another cause to confirm the recent increase in divorce rates is stress in modern living. Many people, who live in globalisation, have considerable pressures to earn money. It can be seen that the stress has occurred since they were children. For instance, Some people are laid off from their companies; consequently the stress occurs in their family, which leads to divorce. Some families can earn money, but inadequate for covering their expenses, therefore it is easy to think about divorce. The rates of unemployment tend to continually increase as a result the divorce rates can also rise. It is no doubt that the stress in modern living may lead to recently increasing divorce rates.

The final cause of recently increasing divorce is lack of communication. Owing to financial status in each family, many people are fairly busy. For this reason, they have inadequate time to talk about problems with their partner, which likely produces divorce. Some couples are often quiet when they have problems, as a consequence little problems can be expanded and probably become bigger problems, resulting in divorce. It is quite clear that when more communication is used, the more divorce rates are reduced.

Firstly, the effects of recent increase of divorce rates are negative effects. Most couples normally have children when they get married. Accordingly, divorces can directly effect the children. Children living in single parent families are probably more likely to get pregnant as teenagers, drop out of high school, abuse drugs and have aggressively emotional and behavioural problems, which lead to social problems. Some children decide to leave home when their parents separate, and subsequently they become homeless children. They do not have good opportunities to find a job due to shortage of education. Consequently, crime may likely be the end result. These are significantly negative effects of increasing divorce rates.

Secondly, another effect in divorce rates are positive effects. People, who divorce from their partners, want to have better quality of life, since they are unhappy with their spouses. Accordingly, they can work efficiently, which results from fine mental condition. They're not only having more free time to do things, but also being free from their spouses’ murmurs. In addition, divorces also get rid of the violence between husband and wife, everybody in the family gets better in physical and mental health, particularly for children. These are the advantageous effects of increasing divorce rates.

In conclusion, a family is one of the important parts of society, many people had better aware of the significance of relationship in family. Divorce has become the substantial problem because of changing women’s roles, stress in modern living and lack of communication. Nevertheless, there are also the two different ways in effects, which are negative and positive effects. Some couples, which have no children, divorce by consent, therefore divorce should be good solution for couples to deal with this problem. On the other hand, some couples having children in their family should think deliberatively before they end their marriage in divorce; otherwise innocent children probably become victims for this situation. Although people tend to think carefully before they get married, the rates of divorce continuously rise now days.
