CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1 Introduction
This chapter presents the study background on the impact of marital conflicts on
pupils‟ academic performance. Other sections includes: statement of the problem,
purpose and objectives of the study and significance of the study. It also presents the
research tasks, research questions, conceptual framework, as well as delimitation,
definition of the key terms and organization of the study.

Conflict refers to lack of peace in an environment. In the family context family refers
to a situation whereby the smooth interaction and relation among members of a
family is disrupted because of one thing or another (Holahan & Moos, 2009). Gerald,
Krishnnakumar and Buehler (2006) highlighted the view that parents play a central
role in shaping the child‟s development through their influence. Gerald,
Krishnakumar and Buehler (ibid) add that, studies carried out have found that
children‟s health and social development is most effectively promoted by love and at
least some moderate parental control. According to Adamson and Thomson (2008)
children who live in marital conflict situations suffer severe stress and this negative
affects their academic achievement.

Marital conflict is a phenomenon that destabilizes the couple, disrupt their joy and
mostly felt by women and yet, least recognized human rights abuse in the world.
Worldwide, information on the amount of conflict in families shows that it is not a rare phenomenon. In recent years the rate of conflict among couples is on the
increase on daily basis. Martin (2000) stated that there are over one million conflicts
yearly and nearly fifty percent (50%) of all marriages now end in conflicts resulting
to divorce or separation. Marital conflict rates in the U.S. for example are at 50% for
first marriages, and subsequent marriages are 2.5 times more likely to end in divorce
(Brown, 2012; Campbell, Shaw & Gilliom, 2000).

Statement of the Problem
The problem of broken homes are universal phenomenon which affect both
developed as well as the under developed country. Yet the causes and effects still
persist with varying degree in different parts of the world. In an ideal atmosphere
children should happily live with their parents and appreciate the love of their parents
for healthier and prosperous growth. One of the tasks that should be fulfilled by
parents is to educate their children because the education of the children does not
start from school, rather the live schooling of students started from home.

In the past, students‟ performance was very encouraging irrespective of family
background, married or unmarried, because marital conflicts were controlled through
the intervention of relatives. This is due to the fact that most couples were living in
close proximity with their relatives, they were been checkmate whenever they do
something wrong. But in recent years due to increase in acquisition of knowledge, urbanization and struggling to make earn meets by spouse, they no longer live in close proximity with relations and as such no relation seem to know when spouse are having any form of marital conflict, hence, they cannot be cautioned. This situation
has impact on children academic performance.
