Introduction 2

1One major change that has occurred in the Western family is an increased incidence in divorce. 2This change is borne out clearly in census figures. 3For example thirty years ago in Australia only one marriage in ten ended in divorce; nowadays the figure is more than one in three (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 1996). 4An interesting issue is why this change has occurred - a question that has been considered by a number of sociologists. 5In this essay, I will seek to critically examine a number of sociological explanations for the 'divorce phenomenon' and also consider the social policy implications that each explanation carries with it. 6It will be argued that the best explanations are to be found within a broad socio-economic framework.
