As well as the adults, children are affected by divorce. Many children blame themselves for divorce. They think that they did something to make their parents break up. Furthermore, they hate seeing their parents argue. Sadly, about half of American children will witness the divorce of their parents. Many children will be affected by divorce unless it can be stopped.
Many married adults try to adapt their marriages to prevent divorce. They may take marriage counseling so that another person will be the mediator. For some couples religion is a problem; therefore, knowing the spouse’s religion before marriage can help. Overall, though, trust is the most important factor in maintaining a healthy marriage.
Therefore, divorce affects everyone in the family, including children. Is it really worth all of that trouble to break a family apart?
