Philosophy of Wellness and Personal Relationships
Divorce has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, and there is evidence that changes in the attachment in families and the major cultural shifts in the importance of family have both served to support the increase in divorce rates. Unfortunately, traditional ways of meeting and assessing potential spouses are relatively ineffective, and this has also served to support increasing divorce rates in the modern era. This 5 page paper provides an overview of the issue presented and relates it to the current literature. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
Children's Depression and the Impact of Divorce
A 10 page (M.L.A. style) proposal for researching the connection between divorce and depression among children. The divorce rate continues to increase, as does teen suicide and reports of depression in children. Many of today’s children are living with or through divorce, and some researchers maintain that we are creating divorce-engendered depression in children. The paper discusses proposed methods and provides a theoretical rationale for the study. The MLA-style bibliography lists 14 sources.
Societal Causes of Divorce.
This 9 page paper discusses some of the causes of divorce, and argues that a "culture of divorce," coupled with a lack of respect for marriage and the diminished influence of the church all contribute to the rising divorce rate. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
Premarital Counseling Effects Upon Marriage Length
An 8 page paper describing a quantitative study assessing whether pre-marital counseling positively affects length of marriage. Despite all of the attention that the problem of divorce receives, divorce rates continue to increase. Most couples do not undergo pre-marital counseling, which anecdotally is viewed as being beneficial in strengthening and preserving marriages. The hypothesis tested here is that couples who undergo pre-marital counseling remain married longer than those who do not; results of the empirical study support the hypothesis. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
