Everything has an effect especially communication.

As a NFP teacher and catechist I believe contraception and materialism ( distractive worldly allures) and not receiving the sacraments with a reverent disposition results in stunted personal growth and communication.

Lack of communication. Forgiveness and not accepting the person the way they are and trying to change them. A good marriage is a questions of luck and growing in the same direction and finding the right person. They both have to believe in God, whether they are christians or catholic christians. Need to talk to each other as soon as there is a problem. Luck of trust is another way of destroying a relationship. Mainly forgiving each other all the time, being patient and understanding.

When both parties discovered lately that they are not compatible in many things because of many reasons, and I believe that some working couples are both busy and they sometimes forget to pray and have time together as couples. Some might forget that there are lots of challenges in marriage and these stages are crucial. The couples should face it toggether in God's grace. The main reason is, it is being legalized.

1) society; western society has the highest rate just cos the society encourages it while in africa it's seen as abormination which makes it very difficult and remains the final way of resolving problems b/w couples.

2) unforgiven spirit.

3)selfishness.

#1 reason - communication. It requires listening - that's why God gave us twice as many ears as we have mouths. If people put as much effort IN to a marriage as it takes to get OUT of a marriage , we would have less divorces.

I think if people were following the Word Of God there would not be civil divorce because active believers and followers would work with their spouse and find a way with God's divine assistance to overcome the difficult issues ----- and they would do it in God's own time. Therefore, I think the biggest reason for civil divorce is not living the doctrine of our Catholic faith in our daily lives.
