SOC 320 Week 7 Discussion Questions Discuss the positive and negative effects of divorce for adults and children in a family

Discussion Question 1

While we must be careful not to confuse correlation with causation, it is clear that some characteristics (sociodemographic factors) such as socioeconomic status, age, race, social integration, and changing norms can have a negative impact on marriages and are correlated with divorce. On the other hand, it is also the case that it is the interaction between people that leads to the actual disruption in a relationship. Briefly list and describe the interpersonal factors that the Lauer & Lauer text identifies as the more immediate types of complaints, conflicts, feelings, and problems that lead to divorce. Then choose one as an example that you have seen and heard in a particular relationship that ended in divorce. Can you identify any sociodemographic factors that may have had a bearing on the type of interactions that led to the breakup of the relationship?

Discussion Question 2

Discuss the positive and negative effects of divorce for adults and children in a family.

Chapter 14 of the Lauer & Lauer text begins with the question, “Is divorce ever good for you?” The answer, it seems, is that there will probably be short-term negative effects but there could also be long-term positive effects. What are some of the positive and negative effects of divorce? How might a Christian Worldview affect whether a couple going through a divorce treat each other ethically? Describe examples with which you are familiar that illustrate both positive and negative effects. Include in your discussion the impacts – positive and negative – for both children and adults in the family that goes through the divorce.
