CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Divorce is a legal termination of valid marriage. If a marriage is not valid when contracted, there cannot be a divorce because there cannot be a divorce because there was not really a marriage. Martial unhappiness is only as a result of the various factors that predispose martial instability. Marital conflict is inevitable in any society as long as husband and wife are different individuals and their actions are important to each other. With such view divorce is a mechanism for dealing with the pressure and problem inevitably caused by marriage because without marriage their would be no divorce.
The negative effect of parental divorce upon children depend upon factors, including the age and sex of the child at the time, it occurs, the amount of conflict within the family unity, and the degree of co-operation between the divorced or separated parents. Each of these factors, alone or interaction with each other, influences the psychological health of the child and the ability of the child to do well at school.
The manner by which parents, interact with each other, both begin and after the divorce, may have a far reaching impact on the child than the actual divorce itself. Indeed, it is often difficult to separate the effects of divorce from the effects of a conflictual family relationship in this manner, the negative effects of divorce may stem from per-existing differences in the family unit, prior to the divorce itself, and these negative effects may be more related to the emotional separation that precedes the legal divorce.
In general, children who have recently experienced a family dissolution have a more difficult time with education and academic expectations at school than children from a stable family or “happy family”. This is visible in the children’s ability to adjust to the reality of their parents divorce, most circumstances, children of divorce homes, are only disposed to the negative effect of their current family situation such children show resilience in adjusting to the effects of parental divorce. Indeed, children who thrive of their current family situation such children show resilience in adjusting to the effects of parental divorce. Indeed, children who thrive well in family dissolution are more likely to live in homes characterized by other family members support.
Therefore, children do better when parents provide consistent coordinated and understanding qualities in which they monitor their children and provide them with love, kindness and guidance such situation requires a problem-solving approach in which the separated parents deny their children, as a result of parental disagreement.
Despite such resilience, many children of divorced parentage experience intense, long term effects that the impact show negative upon their school performance, and a few children carry this long lasting effects into their own adulthood, this in turn seriously impair their ability to develop and maintain a long-lasting social and mutual relationship.
