Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on main reason for divorce Paper must be at least 1250 words. Please, no plagiarized work! Communication is the key to a healthy relationship in a marriage and with other people. An analysis of the impact of communication in a marriage helps understand how poor communication leads to divorce.
Among the major reasons couples use to seek divorce through a court of law for civil unions and religious institutions in religious marriages are infidelity (Clarke-Stewart & Alison 2). Infidelity occurs when a partner in a marriage is involved in a sexual relationship with another person not a partner in the marriage. Religious teachings condemn infidelity so do the civil laws in most countries. Therefore, when a spouse learns of a partner’s infidelity, it is a sure reason for asking for a divorce. However, the root cause of infidelity is what most people tend to ignore and blame infidelity instead (Senate 84). What drives a partner to have extramarital affairs in most cases is unsatisfied sexual desires. Poor communication skills will see the partner keeps silent on the unsatisfied need. In the end result, the unsatisfied partner will have to find another source of satisfaction from outside marriage. Good communication skills involve listening and expressing oneself clearly (Potter-Efron 82). If the couple were able to express their sexual desires to their partners and learn to listen to each other keenly, most infidelities caused divorces would be avoided.
Finance is another communication-related cause for divorce for couples. The presence or lack of finances can lead a couple to divorce. There is a relationship between finances and divorce (Xiao 346). Financial assets are a factor that attracts some couples to a marriage relationship. However, the same finances are the cause of divorce. When one partner has more financial wealth than the other, insecurity comes in. Unable to express their feeling of insecurity, the partner with lesser finances may ask for a divorce so as to get a share of the wealth for themselves. On the other .hand, when a marriage lacks finances, there is dissatisfaction between the couple. Failure to communicate their dissatisfaction with each other will see animosity brew in the marriage relationship.
