its true that divorce have a negative effect on young children

but from my experience ,its better to get seperated initially rather than keep continue in bad marriage .

it better you experience hell once rather than experiencing hell over and over .

i watch my parents fighting throughout my childhood and thats the worse feeling a child can have worse than having no parents .

yes very true.... children need to get the right information about their parents separation at the right time.... they also have to face society of being  achild of a single parent...

Divorce is the biggest stigma on womens life and also her own children. The men should oppose divorce rather than 498A/DV act
