Married couples today are getting a divorce due to many different reasons.Usually divorce happens when couples feel they can no longer live together due to fighting or because the love they had when they married has changed. Divorce also can be because of a serious problem like drinking, gambling or the worst in my opinion, abuse.

Poverty was almost like a curse given to Rosa Vargas by her husband, who “left without even leaving a dollar for bologna or a note explaining how come” (29). Many women today with young children are forced to take care of their families as single mothers without the support of the father.

Now gram was yelling at me”(212). This shows that May has a lot of pressure on her shoulders, because not only was her dad mad at her but now her grandma isn’t even on her side. Those are also her only family members, and both May’s grandma and her dad want her to be a completely different person than she is right now. Even though May is upset she always turns the negative into a positive and knows that her grandma and dad are just trying to help her. Another example of how May struggles to make her family proud is how she constantly has to take care of her ill grandma.

Parents often feel powerless when told of their child’s disability (Watson, 2008). The parent/professional relationship is often strained by the parent’s lack of knowledge to influence decisions about their child. Even in cases where a parent advocate is involved, parents feel that these people are often contradicted since, often, their allegiance is to the agency that they work for (Case, 2000).
