Expectations Of Divorce In The United States

Satisfactory Essays

In the United States, the expectation is that when you get married, it will be "till death do us part." For this question, develop a post in which you address the following: Is this a realistic expectation or not? What happens when divorce is on the table.
I don’t think this expectation is realistic because marriage is not viewed the same as it was years ago. People get married too young, for religious, financial and other reasons than planning to remain together. I feel that religion plays a part in one of the social pressures that make people feel as if marriage will last forever.
Instead of encouraging people to stay married until one partner dies there should be classes to prepare people for what to possibly expect when they get married.
