The rising number of divorces in malaysia is something that is preventable and needs to be addressed

  1. 1. The rising number of divorces in Malaysia is something that is preventable and needs to be addressed. Why happen of divorces So, now we know more about divorces but do you know why the divorces happen? There are several reason that causes the happen of divorces. 1. Lack of communication. Distance is created quickly if you don’t share your feelings, don’t tell your partner what’s happening, and keep your feelings to yourself. A successful relationship constantly keeps the lines of communication open. 2. Finances. Money talks and can make your life better or in some cases worse than you was. If money becomes a consistent topic of disagreement, the road to divorce is certain. 3. Feeling constrained. You may feel your marriage is holding you back from achieving goals and taking opportunities. If your partner can’t support you, then they don’t support the marriage. 4. Trust. Do you really trust your spouse? Trust is one of the leading factors in having a successful relationship and marriage. Your marriage is unlikely to survive if you don’t trust your spouse. 5. Quick change in lifestyle. Couples that can’t compromise and meet in the middle are unable to adapt to new changes and be together in harmony. Must addressed: These days, people are taking marriage and divorce very lightly not realising the consequences following those events, especially the impact on children. Malaysia has a high percentage of divorce rates. Based on statistics, the divorce percentage reaches up to 20% per year. Ending a marriage is a long process and it affects the entire family, including children in every aspect of their lives. The effects of divorce on children because those innocent beings will have to face the impact of their parent’s bad decision in marriage and end up being a victim of divorce. Divorce brings harmful effects on children, as it will cause them to go through emotional and behavioural distress, create negative insights of their own future marriage, and reduce their standard of living and well-being as well.
  2. 2. As the effect of divorce, children will go through emotional and behavioural distress in order to adapt to the life after divorce. Children of divorced parents experience more emotional and behavioural distress compared to children with intact families. Among the pain that the children will experience, will effect in their study in poor grades in school. The child will go through various emotions such as anger towards themselves and the parent that initiated the divorce, fear, betrayal, sadness, and rejection. So they difficulty in making new friends and adjusting to the new environment and teachers are some of the factors that will cause poorer grades. Divorce will also cause a child to miss out the role of a parent who usually is the role model, a shoulder to lean on, a helping-hand and a person who corrects them when they are wrong. As mentioned in, boys and girls have different ways of expressing their emotions towards divorce. Boys generally tend to be more violent while girls on the other hand, tend to be more active sexually at a very early age compared to those who come from intact families. Preventable: Make time to connect lovingly with your spouse every day. A couple can significantly improve their chances of marital success by devoting as little as 15 minutes a day exclusively to each other. Take time every day to have meaningful conversations with each other; to listen with the same intensity as when you were dating; to tell each other how you feel about your marriage. Be honest and ask for honesty in return. Tell your partner that even if they are not in love with you at the moment, the least you owe each other is respect. Tell them that you care about fidelity and that you vowed to be faithful to each other.
  3. 3. Talk to your partner about your future. Make time to speak with your partner openly. Communicate your feelings and your wish to acknowledge theirs. Be open to change. Agree to make changes in your routines or interaction if you feel it will help. Make clear that you will try your best, but it might take you some time to get used to them.
