Background to the Study
A home is defined as the house, flat or apartment that an individual lives in with his/her family (Hornby, Parnwell, 2010). Family is defined as any two people who are related to each other. This includes genetic connection, adoption, marriage or by mutual agreement. The nuclear family comprised of married couple with their biological or adopted child/children living together in one household. This type of nuclear family is referred to by social scientists as an “intact family (home)”, signifying that the family has been through a divorce or separation by death of a member (Conkline, 2006). Broken homes are defined as one in which one of the partners looses his/her spouse by death separation, divorce or single parenting (Conkline, 2006).
Deborah (2002) sees broken homes as a situation where two spouses separate leaving the children to the hazard of the society. Broken home is a home torn apart (Momoh, 2011). Broken homes occur when husband and wife separate from each other through either natural causes (death) or by human cause (divorce) leaving the care and responsibility of the children to one parent. Divorce could be temporal or permanent. It is temporal when there is still hope of coming together after the relevant laws must have been put in place. This is to ensure that issues that created the temporal separation are settled. But if the divorce is permanent, it means there is no hope of coming together. Divorce has to do with either one of the partners quitting or saying “bye bye” to his/her spouse as a result of infidelity, pride, religion, disagreement, in-laws interferences, alcoholism, and disrespect for one another or bulling (violence).
