Background of theStudy

 

Marriage is a legal union of a man and women  as husband and wife. It is usually formalized through some type  of solemnization, which may be wedding in the church, mosque or contracted in the registry or in accordance with native laws and custom. It is a life-long union full of expectations and obligations. One of these obligations is the expectation that each should help the other to grow, to  promote a life of fidelity and sincerity to each other so that the mutual trust required for the union to grow can be strongly safeguarded. There should be no problem or conflict between the couple that can justify divorce orseparation.
