Topic 1: The Cultural Implications of Divorce

Can you guess which of the following statements is true concerning divorce?

  1. In the U.S., almost one in every two marriages ends in divorce.
  2. Two-thirds of divorcing families have minor children.
  3. Approximately one million kids each year see their parents divorce.
  4. Ten percent of adult Americans are currently divorced and are not remarried.
  5. Less than 70% of American children live with two parents.

The answer to the above question is that all the statements are true.  More prevalent than teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, or the death of a parent, divorce is the most common problem facing kids today. Divorce has become a major change factor in our society today, and the ramifications of divorce are profound–both for children and adults.
