(Introduction) Divorce or the dissolution of marriage is the termination of a marital union thus dissolving the bonds of matrimony between a married couple under the rule of law of the particular country or state. Why do people get divorced? There are many reasons why people choose to divorce each other for example, couples who get married at a very young age, they have entered into an abusive marriage, lack of education, financial problems, extra marital affairs and many more.
