When this topic was brought up in class by Dr F Ahmed, i immediately retrospected on my topic for the panel discussion. If one can make a comparative analysis say 10 years ago and current time, we are going to see a mark increased in the divorce rate. Also if one compared the number of students studying overseas or the diaspora, one is also going to see a remarkable increased. So one of the reasons for the divorce could probably due to these scholars trying to get their life partners overseas resulting in culture blending. Since marriage is a life lasting oath in the cause of time you may come to discover the true personality and the cultural differences of the partner. But then that is not the major nor the main cause of divorce nowadays.
A recent poll revealed a clear tendency to blame women for not keeping their husbands happy and a habit of viewing divorced women as unwanted and pitiable.That was in the United Arab Emirates. But what about the United States of America it was not the case. Here we are going to examines of divorce world wild.Some couples often end up having disputes over money. In many cases one of the partners is invariably not happy with the spending habits of the other individual. This can result in massive fights. That money is a contentious issue among couples can be seen from the fact that opinion polls indicate as many as ninety percent respondents reporting fights over money. Likewise over 34% couples indicated that money was one of the major problems.Any form of substance abuse can put a terrible strain on a relationship as substance abuse is often followed with abusive behavior. Many people cannot put up with the addictive behavior of their partners and this causes divorce.
Improper and problematic attitudes towards sex also results in problems within the marriage and this is responsible for eventual divorce. Infidelity in particular has been responsible for breakdown of many relationships and marriages.Immaturity on part of one of the partners and placing excessive demands on the partner are also some of the causes of divorce. The actual figures of marital strife, abuse and violence in marriage are not completely known but studies indicate that around five percent of the marriages experience domestic abuse and this is one of the causes of divorce.Many younger couples complain about too much meddling and involvement of their in-laws in their lives. There are also complains of excessive demands of the in-laws on their time and this puts a strain on the marital relationship. Many times people have unrealistic expectations from marriage and what it is supposed to be like and when this distorted view is not realized, it results in divorce. Lack of communication is also one of the common causes of divorce. Because of lack of communication people are unable to resolve problems and issues that occur within the relationship and the conflicts can in the end cause tremendous strain on the relationship.
