Effect of Family Dissolution, Separation and Disorganisation on Children, Partner and the Society.
Olatunji, Prince P. G.
This personal essay highlights a disturbing trend in the increasing divorce rates not only in Nigerian society, but also across the entire globe. The paper notes many cultural differences between how Nigerian society and the Western world perceive divorce, emphasizing that, worldwide, children are always the victims. Of particular concern is the impact that this trend is having on the welfare of children in these broken families. Children of broken families are susceptible to a range of developmental issues that will require careful monitoring and perhaps intervention. The essay recommends counseling as a method of helping family members cope with whatever changes the dissolution of a marriage will bring. (GCP)
