Why divorce rate on the rise?

Divorce is increasing at an alarming rate in our country. The trend of divorce is spreading across the country like an epidemic. Due to economic turmoil, many families have broken down. Conflict of interest, lack of money, drug addicts, dowry, disagreements and self-esteem are the main reasons behind divorce.

According to the survey, divorce decisions are currently taking place on an average of 37 divorces per day in Dhaka, thus one marriage ends every 38 minutes. 70% of divorces are given by women and 30% by men. But this is only the citys account. In the last 10 years, about 93,000 divorce applications have been filed in the two city corporation areas of Dhaka alone. Who is the most affected by this divorce?

Experts think that boys are not yet ready to lead a family with educated women. They want to have a family with an educated girl, but husbands are unwilling to give full independence or cooperation to an educated girls work life, her personal independence, helping her in some matters. As a result, when an educated girls self-esteem gets hurt, she decides to divorce. Since reconciliation is only for women to do, the girl chooses a life of solitude.

Concerned experts said that although women are ahead in divorce in the city, it is not the picture of the whole country. Low caste marriages or divorces are not always recorded. However, among the lower classes, husbands are the ones who divorce more. Regardless of who the divorce proposal comes from, it is important to consider who is most affected.

Divorce affects children the most. Children are the most affected by separation between parents. Children grow up in such families with various mental problems. Growing up in separation has a variety of effects on the development of children, from newborns to teenagers. Their personality is not properly developed. Family bonds are broken, children are withdrawn from education, emotional and mental development is severely hampered.

Separation between parents creates emotional turmoil for the entire family, but the situation can be very frightening, confusing and frustrating for the children, resulting in children experiencing problems in various ways, including their physical, social and academic functioning. Divorce can cause depression in children

They think that I have no parents, our future is uncertain due to which they cannot concentrate on studies. Also they can afford the cost of education so they stay away from studies. Many children cannot easily accept the separation of their parents. As a result, they go through various mental problems. They feel guilty. Children of families where the parents do not have a good relationship spend their days in a helpless state.

Health means both physical and mental health But when there is a divorce between the parents, apart from mental problems, physical health also suffers. Children are brought up in families. But when the family breaks up, the children are in trouble. As a result, their reluctance in social activities comes. A change can also be observed in their behavior. Many become involved in bad behavior or criminal activities. Because they have no one to guide them.

The children are future of the nation but if they face various problems due to divorce before they reach the future, then the country cannot expect anything good from those children. So this separation must be stopped anyway.

An effective way to avoid divorce is to maintain financial balance. Because the quarrel in married life starts when the supply of money is less than the demand. To avoid divorce, you have to have the mentality of sacrifice. Give a little discount for your loved one. Do household chores together. Never put all the work on one person. To avoid divorce, do not doubt for no reason. Find out the real reason before suspecting others. And the big thing is that it can never be alienated. Because nowadays the divorce rate due to extramarital affairs is the highest.

Emotional closeness or physical touch is very important for the baby. It will depend on the growth of the children and how much attraction the child will develop towards other people and society. Divorce destroys a beautiful family. Parents need to realize that divorce not only hurts them but also their children. So divorce is not desirable at all for the sake of children. To avoid divorce, you have to be aware yourself and make others aware.
