AS Family: 20 mark divorce question general feedback

  • Most of you need to apply more sociologists. Here are some that were used by students in the class:

Coontz; Fletcher; Parsons; Gibson; Goode; Beck and Gernsheim; Sharpe; Giddens; Hart; Allan and Crow; Mitchell and Goody; Leech

  • Always link back to the question; some of you fell into the trap of writing about marriage and/or not linking your reason back to why this might increase divorce
  •  Terms/ideas some of you used:

patriarchy; stigma; norms and values; secularization; confluent love; plastic sexuality; empty shell marriage; socialisation; egalitarian; nuclear family

  • Some of you focused too much on women and whilst this is a very important factor, men are obviously heavily involved too!
