Family is the smallest, most sensitive and important social system which is furnished and facilitated by a society as a larger social system. Marriage is also another small social system which is the foundation of a family. The dissolution of marriage contracted between men and women by the judgment of a court or by an act of the legislature is called divorce. In other words, it is the legal termination of marriage.
Through marriage two individuals start to live together to continue their conjugal life as well as for the creation of new generation. But divorce has severe impact on the family and ultimately on the society. It fractures a family unit, interrupts child rearing as well as children’s and women’s socioeconomic security in the society.
Though divorce has become more acceptable over time, an inverse relationship exists between socioeconomic status and divorce rate. It has been found that to establish a peaceful conjugal life some factors should be considered such as age at marriage, age gap, accepting couple’s opinion before arranging marriage, physical fitness, social and mental consistency between couples, economic solvency, equal social status etc.
Background of the Study
The stability of family creates a building block for children to progress throughout life. When parents separate, the children are left with no stability causing them to lose basic concepts of childhood that may carry with them throughout life. Children of divorced or separated parents have less success and happiness.
Watching parents take a home from a traditional family lifestyle to a “broken” home by getting separated is very devastating for a child's mental well-being. Recent reviews of literature summarize evidence that children are emotionally distressed by parents' separation. Young children, especially, are depressed and anxious, and they feel torn by loyalties to both parents. Family breakup has become a more acceptable and common in families.
However, family breakup has not become a positive thing yet; it still remains negative. One of the dangerous effects is emotional and financial disruption of children’s lives. Considering the above mentioned issues, I decided to conduct a wide-ranging study in order to understand the effects of family breakup on children.
