Calling for Participants in a Research Study
As divorce rates have increased in UK in the last century, many studies have been carried out to study the impact of divorce and subsequently suggest interventions and enhance coping and support for children. However, these studies have focused on majority white populations and seem to have bypassed the ethnic identities in the UK which may have undergone similar dissolution of family.
Though many findings on these populations may be generalized, there be significant differences in terms of coping and impact on children from different ethnic backgrounds and complete generalizations of such studies are not applicable. Researchers have pointed out the importance and relevance of culture in divorce matters (Maundeni 2002) Many other researchers in the past have urged the need for cross cultural studies with differing divorce rates (Lynn, 1990; Kitson & Morgan, 1991; Amato, 1994; Goode 1997; Simons et al; 1999) to allow a more comprehensive theory on divorce.
Divorce has been noted to rise in India and increasing divorce rates have been attributed to various factors such as increasing globalization, westernization and women’s emancipation. However, there is still limited data or literature in terms of causes of divorce or its consequences and impact on divorcing partners or their children. Goode (1993) reported that there was little data available on divorce and he found few researchers in India to commit to this endeavour. One of the reasons for lack of literature on the subject is perhaps because divorce was considered virtually inexistent in India till recent years. However, in view of the increasing family changes and divorce in the Indian context warrants attention towards better management of impact and consequences of divorce in terms of impact, coping and management of divorcing couples and their children.
