A major change that has occurred in the Western family is an increased incidence in divorce. Whereas in the past, divorce was a relatively rare occurrence, in recent times it has become quite commonplace. This change is borne out clearly in census figures. For 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: p.45). A consequence of this change has been a substantial increase in the number of single parent families and the attendant problems that this brings (Kilmartin, 1997).
In current times, individuals have evolved a lot in their beliefs of what is socially acceptable. Divorce has become much more accepted and there is less stigma surrounding it than in previous years. This variations in today’s social attitudes has driven people into marriages that are doomed to end in failure. This essay will address some of the main causes of why rates of divorce are skyrocketing in modern society. Some of which includes modification in the law, the changing role of women in the society and the high cost of living.

The second cause of increase in international adoptions to be considered is adjustment in international adoption laws in Western countries. International law as well as domestic laws within the countries have become generally more sympathetic to international adoption than they have been in the past. Sometimes they are even more sympathetic to international rather than domestic adoption. In the United States, domestic adoption is legally complicated, costly, and quiet slow (Tarmann). Due to the strict laws, it is difficult for potential parents to adopt children while they are still infants.
In the United States, it is estimated that 40 percent to 50 percent of all first marriages and 60 percent of second marriages end in divorce. In the same report, the divorce rate in the United States, Denmark, Germany, is reported to be 5.2, 4.1, 3.5 per 1000 people respectively (USCB, 2012). The divorce rates in various countries are also increasing. In Poland, the divorce rate rose to 1.5 per 1000 people in 2004 (Baranski & Kczmarek, 2007).The number of couples who divorced in Turkey increased to 1.6 percent in 2012 (TSI, 2013). Thus, factors affecting the marriage adaptation of couples is an increasingly important area of study.

Divorce laws differ, but in most countries, it requires a sanction of a court or a legal authority. The legal process of divorce may include issues such as child custody, child visitation, distribution of property, effects on children and effects on the couple. Nevertheless, people don’t mind about the consequences that divorce may have, and that’s why the divorce rate is so large. According to a research done by the North Carolina A&T State University, there are about 1,250,000 divorces per year in the United States, and every year, over 1 million children under age 18 are involved in divorce (Long-term Effects of Divorce on
Name: Instructors’ Name: Course: Date: Population Growth and Aging The world is on the edge of witnessing a demographic milestone. Since long ago children always outnumbered their elders but the trend is changing, and soon we may have the elderly outnumbering children. The age structure of most nations in the world has been altering as persons have fewer offspring and live longer. The trend is driven by the decline in fertility rates, remarkable increase in life expectancy, and improvement in healthcare provision. According to a report by the World Health Organization, the number people above 65 years of age is projected to grow from an approximate 524 million in the year 2010 to about 1.5 billion in 2050 (2).
When one considers the bureaucracy a mere decade ago and what it has since become, the changes may be deemed drastic. It can also be said that work including both criticisms and further development should not be discontinued on either Public Administration Nor Public Choice Theory as they both seek to explain and assist in better operations of the bureaucracy. Through the course of this study we can now understand, Public choice theory provided a way in which we can analyze the public-sector organization. Although there are justified criticisms of public choice, they remain minimal in relation to other courses. The emergence of rational choice Agreeing with Shugart II it is also my belief that “Institutional problems demand institutional solutions.” He provided an easy to understand example stating, “If democratic governments institutionally are incapable of balancing the public budget, a constitutional rule that limits increases in spending and taxes to no more than the private sector’s rate of growth will be more effective in curbing profligacy than “throwing the rascals
The elderly population of Maharashtra has increased dramatically from 8.45 million (8.7 percent to total population) in 2001 to 11.11 million (9.9 percent to total population) in 2011, showing a significant growth of 31.37 percent, on other hand share of working age group (15-59 years) population has registered only 24 percent increase and youth population group (0-14 years) has registered a negative growth rate. This shows that the number and proportion of elderly citizens in the total population of the state has sharply increased in last few decades. At the same time the rate of ageing is not uniform across the districts of the state. Some districts particularly lower on the scale of economic development are at the forefront of this transition, where as the proportion of elderly one’s in economically developed districts is low. Such uneven significant shift in the proportion of elderly population in Maharashtra is mounting pressure on variety of socio-economic and healthcare policy challenges.
