The most common reasons of divorce:
Divorce or dissolution of marriage is the final termination of marriage, canceling the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage and dissolving the bonds of matrimony between married persons. In most countries divorce requires the sanction of a judge or other authority in a legal process.
Divorce laws vary considerably around the world. Divorce is not permitted in some countries, such as in Malta and in the Philippines, though an annulment is permitted.
The legal process for divorce may also involve issues of spousal support, child custody, child support, distribution of property and division of debt, though these matters are usually only ancillary or consequential to the dissolution of the marriage.
Types of divorce
Though divorce laws vary between jurisdiction, there are two basic approaches to divorce: fault based and no-fault based.
1. No-fault divorce
Under a no-fault divorce system, the dissolution of a marriage does not require an allegation or proof of fault of either party. The application can be made by either party or by both parties jointly.
2. At-fault divorce
Countries which permitted divorces also required proof by one party that the other party had committed an act incompatible to the marriage. This was termed “grounds” for divorce (popularly called “fault”) and was the only way to terminate a marriage. Most jurisdictions around the world still require such proof of fault.
The Destruction of the American Family There are, undoubtedly, a number of causes for the increasing number of divorces and unstable marriages. Divorce used to be considered scandalous and immoral. This contributed to many marriages surviving despite strains. However, the more common divorce becomes, the more natural and expectable it seems. The United States has one of the highest divorce rates ...
Religion and divorce:
Many countries in Europe, such as France, once prohibited divorce, as it is not condoned by the Catholic Church. Sometimes citizens travelled to other jurisdictions to obtain a divorce. No Catholic Church will remarry divorced persons, unless they previously have their marriage annulled, which is only possible in some circumstances.
Most Christian churches treat divorce negatively; however, different Christian denominations vary in their toleration of it. The Catholic Church treats all consummated sacramental marriages as permanent during the life of the spouses, and therefore does not allow remarriage after a divorce if the other spouse still lives and the marriage has not been annulled.
In Islam, divorce is allowed. Islam considers marriage to be a legal contract; and the act of obtaining a divorce is essentially the act of legally dissolving the contract. In Islamic law and marital jurisprudence, divorce is accepted and referred to as talaq. However, divorce is considered the most hated of all lawful things in the sight of Allah.
USA: In 2008, 46% of all marriages involve a remarriage for one or both spouses. It is estimated that 40% of all marriages have ended in divorce as of 2008. The overall divorce rate is in decline in the US, but so is the marriage rate. A 1995 study found a wide range of unassociated factors including frequency of sex, wealth, race and religious commitment.
Europe: One study estimated that legal reforms accounted for about 20 percent of the increase in divorce rates in Europe between 1960 and 2002.
UK: Between 1990 and 2003, The United Kingdom had the highest divorce rate at 6.68 annual per 1,000 people, and the Republic of Ireland the lowest rate at 0.63. The number of divorces granted in the UK in 1961 was 27,000. This doubled to 56,000 by 1969, and doubled to 125,000 divorces by 1972. The increase in divorces has been largely attributed to the introduction of the Divorce Reform Act of 1969. The rate of divorce in the United Kingdom has been dropping in recent years. In 2007 the divorce rate in England and Wales was recorded at 11.9 people per every 1000 of the married population. This is the lowest divorce rate recorded since 1981.
People from broken families are less likely to have successful marriages. This is because of the psychological implications such families bring into their life. According to available psychological evidence, divorce is a major cause of emotional stress and depression (Clarke-Stewart, & Brentano, 2006). Depression as a psychological impairment has been evidently found to factor much in ...
Japan: In Japan, divorces were on a generally upward trend from the 1960s until 2002 when they hit a peak of 290,000. Since then, both the number of divorces and the divorce rate have declined for six years straight.
South Asia: India and Sri Lanka are the two countries that have the lowest divorce rates, around one and one and a half per cent respectively. In this part of Asia divorce is still very rare, although it is more common in South East Asia.
REASONS OF DIVORCE:
There are many common reasons for divorce:
-A lack of commitment to the marriage
-A dramatic change in priorities
There are other causes we see a lot, but not quite as often as those listed above .They are:
-Failed expectations or unmet needs
-Addictions and substance abuse
-Physical, sexual or emotional abuse
-Lack of conflict resolution skills
And the most common reasons:
1. poor communication:
Commonly, couples become unable to communicate in a normal, meaningful fashion. Either spouse’s inability to avoid exchanges which invariably result in conflict is representative of a communication breakdown in the marriage. More often, however, growing differences between the spouses which may have their roots in other mentioned causes are to blame for communication breakdowns. Many emotions may occur as a result of not being able to communicate effectively. In the end, there are high levels of frustration, resentment, and disappointment. The issue of divorce may present itself.
Infidelity It could be argued that infidelity within marriages is a reaction by a spouse to the real breakdown of the marriage, and is not itself the cause. Either way, it is cited as the cause of almost one third of divorces ins the USA. Spouses may be unfaithful consistently during an affair, intermittently, or just once in a one night stand. Common explanations for unfaithfulness include resentment or anger (with the other spouse) and sexual boredom. This occurs when either the man or woman seeks some form of companionship – specifically, physical – in a partner outside of the marriage. There are several different reasons that this may occurs. It is often a way to find something that feels “lost” in the marriage. This is definitely not appropriate to a marriage. The feelings of distrust and betrayal that comes when a wife or a husband cheats are too much to handle, and the offense often is too serious to forgive. On the other hand, many couples have weathered this sort of storm and, after a long time and a long, hard road to recovery, been able to stay together.
Divorce Divorce is as American as apple pie. The bonds that connect one people to another can be dissolved. Our Declaration of Independence was nothing more than our divorce document with England. You could move west, reinvent yourself and be free. Approximately half of all marriages that take place today in the U. S. will end in divorce. (Robinson) This well-known but shocking statistic hasn't ...
3. Physical, sexual or emotional abuse
Where either spouse is frequently abusive towards children or each other, the other spouse has clear grounds for divorce. Physical abuse includes all types violence (fighting, manhandling, and physical bullying of an individual).
Alcohol addiction and substance abuse leads to drastic changes in the behavioural pattern of the addict. Often more than one can handle, the situation is compounded when both partners resort to using narcotics, adversely impacting on the mental, physical and emotional stability of the couple and ultimately ending in divorce.
4. Financial problems:
Economic strain and financial burdens is one of the most common reasons for the collapse of marriage. Disintegrating financial circumstances, incurred debts and disagreements over the allocation of money is sometimes all it takes enough to end an already aggravated marriage. Usually the lack of money can be a reason for divorce too. Related to this reason is the loss of jobs. These days when the world is into recession, there has been an increase in the number of divorces. This is because the couples are not able to live their life at peace because they are not able to earn enough for themselves and also their children. They are not able to live their life like they used to
5. Family and Friends Interference:
Family and friend interference is often a complication in numerous marriages. Parents, siblings, friends, aunts, uncles…I mean, just anyone who is close to the married couple can really put a damper in that relationship by giving their perspective on situations in the marriage that are truly none of their business – despite their best intentions. Though it is said that a mother-in-law is like a second mother to a newly married girl, there are a few females who don’t agree with this. They regard their daughter-in-law to be a threat to their position in the family and fail to recognize that after their son gets married; he needs to give time and attention to his wife also. The result is that intentionally or unintentionally, they create problems between husband and wife, which – if it gets out of control, leads to divorce.
The issue of child abuse is characterized by many contentions and therefore it is a subject of discussion. For instance, some people argues that a physical action will not be abusive if it was not intended to hurt the child while on the other hand, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States defines child abuse as any action that can hurt or result to hurting of a child ...
Just as there are many common reasons for divorce, there are also many ways to avoid these reasons.
Divorces always cost more than marriages – physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Not all marriages fail for the same reason.
Most common reasons of divorce:
1. Poor communication
3. Physical, sexual or emotional abuse
4. Financial problems
5. Familiy and friend interference
