Background

important and most publicized aspect of broken home is the effect it has on
children after a marriage has been dissolved; the children as well as the
couple suffer its consequences.

customs influence divorce so too does personality, for example when women see
themselves primarily as wives and mothers and subordinates their needs to those
of their families divorce is less likely. But on the other hand, when woman
focus on their potential for growth and achievement, tolerance or unhappiness
drops, and divorce rate rises.

child who lives with one of his parents is deprived of many things and the
level of his former standard of living will fall if the child lives with
another family he or she may not feel at home often.

(2000), in his law of mental act, said that lack of mental set brings set back
in learning. This implies that adolescent would find it difficult to learn if
there is any unresolved problems that is troubling them. Also many children
that possess ability cannot succeed because they believe that they have
disabilities which cannot be overcome.
