Men and women have the equal right. They can do what they want to do. If they love each other, they are going to get married. However, if they lose their love for each other, absolutely, they are going to divorce. In the past, there were a few divorces because there were not many problems like in these days. Rising divorce rates today has been resulted from four causes.
First is infidelity. The main reason often occurs from a man because he goes to work and leave his wife to look after their home and child. He goes to work that means he has a chance to meet other women. Some men not only just talk with other women but have the affairs with those women. Moreover, they may have children outside marriage. In addition, some men may infect the veneral diseases from their paramours. This problem can lead to the divorce of a couple.
Second is the domestic violence. This trouble is very terrible. When the couple has not yet married, they will not know the real character of his or her partner but after they get married, they will know what the truth is. The truth that I mean is violence. Suppose, a man or a woman like to use it, but his or her partner does not like and cannot bear with that violence. Thus, it causes the divorce problem.
Third is the financial problem. Somebody may think that is a little problem but, actually, it is a big trouble. Money is important to live in this world because we have to use money to buy things. If both of men and women do not have money, the other troubles will happen such as disputation that results in the separation.
Last is woman’s independence. In fact, nowadays, women can live alone while men cannot do because the women can rely on themselves. They work and have power as men do. Therefore, when a spouse has some problems that made they cannot live together, the wife agrees to get a divorce because of courage. She can live without a partner which leads to the divorce easily.
Due to those causes, it made the effect to the families which have the children. If their parents got a divorce, they would have the inferiority complex. They may be mimicked from their friends when they were young. Furthermore, they may lack the love or care from their father or mother. Moreover, some kids may addict drugs or be led to the wrong ways because they do not get enough attention.
In summary, the rising divorce rates occur from the infidelity, the domestic violence, the financial problem and woman’s independence. However, to reduce the rising divorce rates, we should give more love and understanding to each other because love and understanding are essential to live in this world.
