 Divorce has a major impact on the family. Every individual of the family will suffer short and long term effects.It can be argued that divorce is the best solution for the children of high conflict, aggressive and hostile marriages.The fact remains that divorce carries with it many negative effects on children, teens, spouses, parents and the extended family members.Divorce impacts the careers of people and the well being of society. People do not consider the great consequences to all the members of the family when they take the path of divorce as their solution to their problems. They will justify in their own minds the right to end the marriage, regardless of the obvious pain it will cause.
