We are looking for people who have gone through a divorce and are able to explain to us how the divorce has affected their lives. By this we mean all aspects of their lives: their working lives, their private lives, their relationships with others, and even their own well-being. Did they become better and more resilient? If yes, what contributed to that resilience, and their ability to “bounce back”? Did they become more withdrawn from society and felt crushed by the divorce? If yes, why did they succumb to the feelings of inferiority? How did they think that they could have changed it?
We are also looking for people who were affected in some serious way by the divorce of someone that they knew.
We believe that such a study is timely and needed. Today’s society undergoes a higher rate of divorce among married couples. At the same time, there is also a higher rate of separation among cohabiting couples. We seek to understand the effects of divorce on people and society. Needless to say, we do not question why the divorce happened in the first place. That is in the past. We want to learn from the experiences of others in order to distill the principles of what helped them bounce back. It is hoped that the study will help society.
Please feel free to contact us today if you think that you or a friend of yours would like to participate in our study.
