These graphs give you a good view of what is the problem of failure marriage in order for us to think all the possible solution which can be used to reduce divorce rate in this small area called paradise. ANALYZING AND INTERPETATION OF DATA The researcher knows that is part of this school based assessment (s.b.a) or report is a very important part which actually carried 20% of the marks overall. Firstly the researcher used the questionnaire that was distributed to the residents of the small village called paradise which had important information of marriage, the causes effects and even possible solution for failure marriage also even which type of marriage mostly occur in the community. Questionnaires was distributed to five males and fifteen to the females but the researcher noticed that all five of the males had been able to filled and returned the questionnaires whereas all fifteen of the females didnât twelve had returned out of fifteen. The researcher also recognized that majority of the residents was at the age between twenty to forty-five years old (20-45), whereas the residents who had been able to response to the questionnaire was living in the small village for five years and even over, which the researcher had a greater advantage because they were experience residents. The three questions that had chosen for the presentation of data were randomly checked and were set appropriately. The first question was what can define as marriage? The researcher gave four options which are a vow, when two persons living together, it is a legal proposal and a legal union that contain a certificate. The researcher noticed that most residents had chosen the first option which is a vow, the researcher realized that what the residents trying to simplify is that when you make a vow your responsibility is to honor and keep it between the persons actually this kind of vow is one that includes god it is a promise that you made their and youâre not supposed to let go until death do us part. When two people made that kind of vow it is no matter all the dangerous path while it is rough or smooth you need to go through, marriage life has steps to go through, this is why the researcher thought why the residents chosen this option the most. The second question was what are the most causes of failure of marriage in paradise? Also this question had four options to choose, the researcher thought that domestic violence would have been the most cause but according to the report it was financial problem, there are two ways which the married couple can solve this problem which is either increase income or decrease expenses. They can increase their income by working together and be able to take responsibilities they should without causing misunderstanding or argument within the family, however they can decrease expenses by shopping for much lower quality but strong materials, avoid buying expensive products. The third question was what is the main role of socialization the spouse should share with each other? The options were love, affection and attention, respect, Adour partners and be at each other side. Most residents choose the first options which were aggressive. The researcher recognized that most married couple does not play that role within the family and they need even couples might be busy with their working schedule without these the relationship will not last for long. The community paradise have a lot of single parent family and sibling household whereas a few of nuclear family which is not a good life standard these single parent family and sibling household can hampered the mind of the youths in paradise these type of family have a great disadvantage of the nuclear families. FINDINGS The researcher observed that during the investigation of this problem for failure marriage is that one of the main cause was financial problems and this does only occur in the community paradise but also the country or around the world and the couples doesnât know how to deal with is matter and due to these situations the government should be able organize special counseling for the families. Secondly the researcher noticed that when fathers are single parents the faces some of the horrible consequences more than the mothers when the mother walk out on the family the husband feels frustrated and this even can lead to being abusive to the child/children which can also lead to much bigger situation. Thirdly is that divorce rate is getting more higher each year which isnât supposed to happen if married couples lived together for five years it is a lot most people get divorce this is terrible for the humanity lives, they made a vow and didnât kept and this happens all around the world, the governments should respect this type of life and find possible solution to reduce the rated of divorce and save the marriages within the countries. RECOMMENDATION AND IMPLEMENTATION The major causes of failure marriage are financial problems, communication problems and also abuse problems that mostly occur in the community. The researcher observed the effects of failure of marriages are depression and challenge of paternal instinct and even this can hamper the children of broken marriages from be educated. These failures of marriages should not be at a high rate or it should not be increasing rapidly every year. In other to solve these issues I would do the possible solution of the following below: Â· Acknowledge that one partner maybe the saver and the other the spender understand that both partners have benefits also agree to learn from each other tendencies and never hide income or debt. Â· Being abuse in any way to avoid this you can seek counseling associations and try to communicate with partners in a loving way. CONCULSION This school based assessment had be successfully completed with the help and explanation the subject teacher and he support of the residents also from the researcher family members.
