    Divorce,A Social problem
    In the last two decades there is a raise in divorce rate in Pakistan. The main reasons are:
    Lack of sacrifice, forced marriages, greed, Joint family system, difference in social status and one of the main reason highly career oriented women

    There are situations in which Divorce is the only answer. Divorce is something which is hated by ALLAH, but it is allowed because there are situations where divorce is the only option.

    Surah Al Baqarah:
    ''AND IF YOU FEAR THAT THE TWO (I.e) Husband and wife) may not be able to keep the limits ordered by ALLAH, there is no blame on either of them if she redeems herself (from marriage tie)

    It is not beneficial to raise children in an unstable home. Most of the divorces take place due to lack of communication plus inferiority complex.With the divorce rate on the increase in Pakistan women becoming increasingly independent often placing their careers before family and husband.

    According to a survey most of the lawyers acknowledged that divorce rate is increasing in middle and lower middle class. Financial problems is one of the big reasons for separations. Normally in lower middle class husbands fail to fulfil the demands of their wives, which becomes the main reason of dispute.

    Joint family system becomes the reason of divorce in which, dispute with mother in-law is one of the example. Divorce cases are increasing day by day because women from all segments of society are fully aware of their rights. women want to follow the lifestyle of modern girls as shown in television that's why they don't compromise.

    A ‘tendency towards individualisation’, the ‘pursuit of happiness’, secularisation of the state and society, increased labour force participation of women,the ensuing female economic independence and even the feminist movement have been blamed.

    The Pakistani context is quite different in terms of diverse ‘family’ structures and the high numbers of lone parents and female headed households which characterise western countries today, nevertheless, Pakistani demographic trends also display rapid urbanisation, nuclear households, increasing literacy and labour force participation, a rise in overall age at the time of marriage and decreasing fertility — all of which have been correlated to divorce by demographers

    Marital dissolution also seems have become a topic of some speculation in the newspapers here, particularly the Urdu press. Some contributory factors identified by these papers — petty arguments, ‘egotistical issues’, low levels of literacy, early age at the time of marriage and frequent fracas with the mother-in-law — also lead to a somewhat reductive representation of women.

    Others have identified a growing “awareness” among women, even speculating that “most (women) have the degrees and ... the will, to earn their living. As wives they feel they can afford to take more risks with their marriages.”

    Pakistan’s last census reveals that marital dissolution occurs mainly through widowhood; the number of divorced individuals seem insignificant to that of widows. Also divorce seems more visible in Punjab and Sindh.

    Significantly, after 2002 when the Muslim Family Courts Amendment Ordinance (that a move for khulla be finalised if reconciliation fails and should be done so within six months), was effected, female initiated divorce rose by almost 50 percent the following year. Male divorces also rose by 40 percent.
