It may not be that a formal break up or a separation between the couples is the only seemingly end of the relationship between them. Many a times we also hear of and see instances wherein the couple or the husband and the wife are unhappy in the company of one another, and for some reason or the other, most of the times because of the children, they are forced to live together with one another in the same house. But, at times, this becomes impossible and the only option then left is to go for a formal break up, between the partners, which in most of the cases, brings despair to even the other individuals involved in the union, mostly the child or the children. But because of the fact that these days even women, are working equally as men, whether in the home front or at work, and have an independent frame of mind which they have been encouraged to adopt by the social thinkers of our times, there are more cases of divorces than ever before. This is due to the reason that today's woman feel and know that she does not require the assistance of the man in her life to take care of her needs of daily life, which she is very much in a position to cater to. Besides this, with both the man as well as the woman of the house working, there is hardly any time left to spend qualitatively at time, devoting adequate time for the development of the children, with the result that even the children are seen to have troubled times coping without the required assistance of their parents. This speaks for the growing number of children with various problems, which were unknown in the earlier times. These problems are more to be seen in the developed nations of the world than the other nations. The United States of America leads the race in this and Iowa, a state in the Midwestern part of the nation, is no exception to this trend as has been aptly revealed by the Iowa Divorce Statistics.
