Marriage Policies

           Marriage Policies and Divorce Laws

Marriage is an institution where two persons are deliberately engaged and promised to live together through thick and thin. Traditionally, marriage was considered composed of some unbreakable vows and the couple involved had the notion that they had to live with each other until death departs them. Recently, many changes have been taken place in marriage policies and the divorce laws have been made flexible.

Previously, divorce law did not allow the divorce to be initiated by an individual without the consent from his spouse. Thus, divorce was a matter of concern and consent to both of the couple and was held jointly rather than individually. Today, the unilateral divorce law makes it legitimate for a married person to initiate divorce without any consent from his spouse. This surely has made the divorce easier and increased its rate. The liberalization in divorce laws also affected the marriage; the rate marriage is also declining. (Friedberg)

Numerous factors contribute to long-term partnerships. These are:

  1. Mutual dependencies,
  2. Psychological support,
  3. Emotional attachment,
  4. Trust,
  5. Reliability,
  6. Love and sexual satisfaction and so on.

We can avoid divorce. Most of the time the decision of divorce is made impulsively without any deep contemplation. Divorce seems to be easier solution to all unsettlement, refutation or disagreement in marriage.  (Preston, and Richards)

Divorce should not be practiced until there is no other solution to keep relationship alive. Divorce should be the last resort for a couple who are struggling in living together. It should not be considered to be a blessing rather an escape route. Should there any situation or misunderstanding between couple they should not prompted to a divorce; instead they have to try with their last effort to settle things and to make things back to normal. They can consult marriage counselor, can refer themselves to their relatives who can help the get through the unsettling situation, can try to talk to their spouse to make things all right.
