Divorce rate in RI highest in Asia Pacific

Surabaya, E Java (Antara News) - The number of divorce cases in Indonesia has reached 200 thousand each year, the highest rate in the Asia Pacific region, data said.

Serious disputes in marriage have become the main reason for a divorce, Karuniawati, the East Java provincial chapter of the Prosperous and Justice Party (PKS) said here on Friday.

Karuniawati, head of women`s affairs division of PKS said that although the local religious high court (PTA) had suggested solutions, urging the disputing couples to cancel their planned divorce, only about 1,000 couples withdrew their law suits in Surabaya.

Chairperson of the PKS provincial chapter expressed concern over the great number of divorce cases in Surabaya, capital city of East Java province in recent years.

Data showed that the number of divorce cases in East Java alone in 2003 reached 40,391, in 2004 increased to 42,769, but in 2005 skyrocketed to 55,509 cases.(*)

Very interesting. Im trying to think what might've caused our rate to increase so fast. Could it be the higher and higher number of working women (increasing independence, "temptations" etc etc), or indirectly the habit of celebrities which are shown on hourly basis on our TV to cause the belief that its OK to have a divorce?

actually, the divorce rate in indonesia has historically always been very high. so this is by no means a new phenomenon. as to the reasons, i can only speculate ...

WHy the divorce rate in Indonesia is that high ?
It should be a question within so many answer
but according to me those who are ends in divorce does not too mature for a after marriage life. Why ?
They just childish, They don't think for the consequences , like what their childrenn feel and how divoce causes the psychology condition of the child

why? "the grass is greener on the other side" Then only to discover the grass is full of moss, weeds and same old shit.
Moral of the story: every marriage needs work, compromises and compassion.

divorce should be seen as a successful conclusion to a marriage.
