Kentucky Divorce Statistics

Divorce Papers > Divorce Statistics > Kentucky Divorce Statistics

No person desires to live alone, and for this purpose, they constantly seek the company of some or the other individual with whom they desire to share all their thoughts as well as worries together, and share the house and their lives with the person. Towards this, the human beings enter into a wedlock or a formal institution of a marriage, for the purpose of sharing their joys as well as sorrows together with their soul mates. However, many a times we see the break up of the institution due to some or the other reason between the couple or the partners, who are unwilling to compromise on many grounds, and then the only option that is left before them is to call it quits. Couples easily seem to forget all their promises and the vows that they had made to one another at the time of coming together at the altar, without paying heed to even the consequences that might fall upon the other persons who are involved in this institution of their wedlock, especially the child who has to bear the pain and trauma of non agreement between the parents, and then eventually being a witness to their break up. All this has to be borne by the innocent, poor child or the children without any fault of theirs, and at times it has also been observed that they try all their best to make things work out between the couple or their parents. The children of such divorce couples or broken families grow up with a lot of troubles in their growing years, and worst still, at times they retain all these suffering for the rest of their lives, and have problems in mingling with other people of the opposite gender. One reason for the spurt in the statistics of divorces all throughout the globe is the lack of time on the part of the couples to give to each other or to their children, and they hardly have enough time to devote in solving the issues at home with the result that before long, no strategy seems to work, and then the only solution left for them is to drop the curtains on their marriage, without giving a second thought. The second reason for the rise in the number of divorce cases throughout the world can be attributed to the rise in the development of the modern attitude in the women of today, something which makes them feel and not acknowledge the presence of a man in their lives. Today, women know that come what may, with their financial independence they are well in a state to cater to all their daily needs of life. All these reasons have led to the increase in the divorces all throughout the world, and the United States of America can be said to lead the race in this trend. Kentucky, a state in the country is also a part of this havoc as has been proved by the Kentucky Divorce Statistics.
