Sometimes, your friends and family go against you because divorce is still sometimes seen as socially immoral. On top of that, people also fear being alone. After being in a relationship with someone, no matter how long, you grow accustomed to them and recognizing that they will no longer be there, is hard to accept. For this reason, many millennials are deciding not to take the emotional risk and commit to marriage, because they are afraid of committing and then being left alone with a shattered heart and broken
The negative side of divorce is that families sometimes stay torn apart, therefore: There is a lot of anger, rage that happens because going through a situation like this is not something that is easy, and many emotions become involved. Dealing with their parents can be difficult for some teens, but for many others, they feel as if a divorce will make their family happier without seeing all of the fighting. Handling divorce is so difficult when it comes to teens, and is a process of life. Not all teens have the same reactions that other teens may experience in the different living environments. Seeing that your parents are drawing further apart and are going through many heartache puts teens through a lot of emotion.
There are a lot of reasons why people get married, having kids should not be a reason for people to get married. Although this is a common reason why people get married, it doesn’t usually end well. When people gets married just because they got pregnant or have kids, they are not thinking about their relationship and wether or not they are compatible or right for each other. This could end up badly in the future. For example, when people are not compatible or right for each other, there will be a lot of fights and arguments in their marriage, as they might have a lot of things that they disagree on.
The problems faced within a couple not only affects the two involved in the fight, but also their children’s lives in a negatively manner. Marriage is not viewed as highly in today’s society as years before due to the amount of marriages not lasting and ending in a divorce. Divorce is common today because of couple’s uneasiness to try and work things out by going to couples therapy together or listening to each other. Children are affected emotionally by their parent’s decision of divorce in their relationships with their friends, family and teachers. Parents try to do as much as possible to avoid their children asking about divorce.
There are several reasons that cause people to divorce and this result affects the children. In the U.S., is it common that we see many married people end their relationship with a divorce and most of them are young people. The divorce rates still at a high rate that in the Unites States statistics show, one out of two marriages end in divorce. The current divorce rate may be decreasing however at the same time many people are not getting married so therefore the divorce rates remains low. When people get married and divorce so easily it causes many not to take marriage as something serious.
When two people are in love they are willing to do whatever it takes to make their spouse happy. They may not feel happy, but they feel that if they leave the situation they have failed their marriage. When neither one can bring it upon to each other that it is time to file for a divorce, death is the only thing that might make everything seem reasonable to deal with. Most relationships fail because two people are no longer in love with each other. They are not willing to fix what is broken, so they allow the relationship to fall apart and not be fixed.
Now people get married knowing that if the relationship as a married couple does not work there are chances of requesting a divorce. More of the divorce cases occur because couples are falling apart due to many different reasons, for example; conflict on their marriage, loss of romantic feelings, a spouse committing an affair or some kind of marriage problem. Some of the divorcing couples have children of young age. The children do not have an idea on how to deal with a terrible event like the “Divorce.” Some of the children will have to learn to deal with the divorce at a young age and this dramatic change may cause the child to develop some kind of mental and attitude problems. Parents do not realize in how hard it is for a child to deal with a divorce from their parents.
Often enough the divorce causes children to feel displaced and also to have feelings that their world is coming to an end. These children tend to grow into adults with either extreme emotional detachment and self-esteem issues or they will have strong family values and try to prevent the cycle from repeating itself but the majority of these children grow up suffering from the divorce. Children of divorced parents often enough feel as though the divorce is their fault and become depressed and distant while suffering from low self-esteem since they think that they are the reason their parents split. Many children of divorced parents typically grow up with behavior problems and poor self-images as though they cannot be loved or are not worthy of being loved since their parents divorced, there is the feeling of not being loved at all. The children also suffer because they are now separated from one parent and no longer have both parents in the home.
Loss of contact with friends, schoolmates, neighbors, teachers, and sometimes moving to a new location may bring a lot of psychosocial stress upon the children, and that stress can be very harmful. Since the divorce boom started in the 1960?s, father-mother divorces have increased at an alarming rate. Today more than 1,000,000 kids experience a divorce in the family every year in the United States alone (U.S.A. Today, p. 8). As a result of the divorce, many children live in single-parent homes. This usually results in a drop in income for the family.
Today, all across the United States, there are more and more families splitting up because of divorce. Divorce is not a big deal anymore like it used to be thirty years ago, now couples are starting to get divorces in as little as three weeks after marriage. Divorce is a very heartbreaking process that hurts the couple, and the ones surrounding them. Divorce also comes with many downfalls but there are three main things to consider before divorce. “Psychological...Financial... Impact on children”(“3 Things to Consider...”).
