People have been getting married for centuries.
During such traumatic episodes of history as WW2, it was the fear for a beloved person’s life that kept married people together.
Wedlock was solely based on one’s hard work in order to provide for the family and make it survive.
Not everyone is aware of the fact that we have begun a new era of marriages.
The definition and function of it have changed dramatically.
Now, instead of being constantly afraid whether a family will survive the hard times, partners have time to…talk
But do we know how to talk? The question may sound ridiculous to you.
However, finding an agreement and leading a happy joint life with another person is much more difficult than it seems.
Has someone taught us how to do it properly?
We all have been raised in different backgrounds. Every one of us has their own flaws and good sides.
But it frequently happens that the flaws of another person make the marriage an unbearable trap for their partner.
The most common causes of marriage failure are communication and commitment.
Or lack of them. Therefore, more and more people, being frustrated by their wedlocks, decide to get divorced.
For example, in the U.S., there is one divorce every 13 seconds. And there is one that involves kids every 22 seconds, says Survive Divorce.
For the adults who see the situation from their perspective, separation can become a relief. But for a kid, it can become a traumatic experience.
For many partners, their children are the last thing that keeps them together.
However, this is rarely the right solution.
Becoming a witness of disagreeable relationships between parents, a kid might be even more traumatized than after their separation.
If proceeded in the right way, parents’ divorce does not leave a big scar in a child’s memory.
However, very often, the separation between spouses leads to less effective parenting, financial problems, lack of child’s contact with one of the parents, and interparental conflicts.
In this case, the negative influence on a child’s mental health is unavoidable.
The detrimental effects of it can be visible either right away after the divorce or many years after it when a child grows up and builds their own relationships.
