Introduction: Based on Statistical Center of Iran, the rate of divorce has increased in the recent decades. In this regard, there is a need to investigate the data to identify the key factors that can explain why it happens. Hence, the main goal of this study is to present an analysis of divorce phenomenon; and seek to contribute efforts as regards the social factors related to divorce among Mahmudabad’s couples applying for divorce.
Method: The research methodology was based on quantitative methods (semi- structured questionnaire) to get information and data from couples who were heading towards divorce. The study includes all cases (couples) of divorce applicants referring to “The intervention center in the family to reduce divorce rate (Welfare Organization)” in two years, which in total included 627 cases (1396 and 1397).
Findings: The main findings of this study are mentioned in two parts. At first, the research focused on some socio-demographic variables, such as areas (city or countryside), education level, age, and duration of marriage.
In the next part, the most common reasons related to divorce are mentioned. In brief, extramarital affairs, emotional divorce, addiction to drugs or alcohol, unfamiliarity or lack of life skills training, interference by family or others, sexual dissatisfaction, and economic conditions or money-related issues are cited as the most common reasons for divorce. These can explain why so many marriages fail.
Discussion: based on the mentioned findings, some of suggestions and recommendations are proposed to minimize divorce that play a vital role to prevent or reduce negative consequences of breakup of a marriage in the future including, pre-marital education, life skills training programs, and revising the rules and law.
