Men and women approach marriage and divorce differently. Women are mostly seen to be more emotionally invested in their relationships than men; the strong impact of marital problems and divorce can be greater in women as well. In cases where only the male is the breadwinner of the family, and the woman is a homemaker, the woman may find it very difficult to meet her financial needs after the divorce is done.

Children are highly impacted
