For as long as I can remember I have been told and learnt that divorce is a bad thing. When you look at it, yes it truly is. It is showing that you basically gave up and weren't able to fulfill a life long commitment you made. But just because you're supposed to be with this person forever according to certain vows that were made at a wedding doesn't mean that staying together is the right option.
Most often times in marriages, kids are brought into the picture. Kids are surrounded by their parents day after day. They hear what they have to say to each other whether it be good or bad. When a couple begins to fight and this becomes continuous, it evolves into a poor environment for children to live in. Children love their parents no matter what but they dont deserve to be surrounded by the negative environment due to their parents relationship. That is why divorce can be a good thing given a situation like that. Divorce has great effects on children depending on how you look at it. Children are being faced with the harsh fighting and cursing throughout their lives that when their parents finally separate, its a sense of relief and it makes living a whole lot better for them, a sense of liberation. According to page 391 of the Psychology, From Inquiry to Understanding textbook, "In the latter case, divorce typically produces no ill effects on children, probably because they find the divorce to be a welcome relief from their parents' incessant arguing."
