The Causes and Consequences of DivorceAims
In this coursework I wish to deeply look into what are the reasons formarriage break-ups which consequently lead to divorce and even moreconsequently one-parent families. I also want to ask the questionabout the dependant children in nuclear families. Also another mainimportant area to investigate is which age couples are more likely tohave a marriage break-up, and further more I will look at thedevelopment of divorce over the past decades. Another point in which Iwill be looking at is the changes in attitude towards divorce.
Another area to investigate is whether religion has an influence inthe break-up of marriages. If there was more religion in marriages,would more couples stick by their marriage vowels and try and make themarriage work. One more fragile issue in which marriages break-up isviolence and I will be looking at this matter in great detail.
The reason in which I am investigating this topic is because I wouldlike to know why the divorce rate is escalating sharply. My specificpoint to look at is why marriages divide, and why people divorce eachother. The methods which I am going to employ to perform this researchare by using books, internet research, newspapers and primary sources.By doing this coursework I wish to illustrate the very detailedreasons why people divorce and the consequences of divorce are onsociety.
The background is going to include the past perspectives of divorce atdifferent times, the key theories of divorce and studies on divorce.
The background is also going to contain evidence to support the claimsmade.
…is easy toimagine someone thinking at some point in their marriage ‘this is notwhat I signed up for, nor what I want’, and ‘I have enough years leftto make it worthwhile for me to get out and try again’. Another reasonfor divorce could be that couples get jealous of other so called‘Hollywood’ marriages. They may see certain things on T.V, inmagazines, newspaper images of nice houses and has got them wantingmore, more which they cannot achieve in their current marriage.
Two more influences may play a part in 21st century divorce.
One is time. Increasingly both partners may be stretched by theirjobs. Absence makes the heart grow fonder but not if the reunions arefraught and fleeting. A second factor is the inflated value ofperfection; perfect wedding; perfect baby; why not order up theperfect marriage.
