 Spain Decides That Divorce is After All a Good Thing

After Brazil, Spain has come out to be the second country in the world where divorce is better accepted socially.

Around 79 percent of Spanish people think that, when a couple is not able to solve their marital problems, divorce is the best solution.

The data was derived from the study "Social perception of divorce in Spain", published in the Revista Espaqola de Investigaciones Sociolsgicas (Reis) by Professor Diego Becerril Ruiz, of the Department of Sociology of the University of Granada.

It also reflects that the acceptation of divorce has increased in our country during the 90's.

The data collected from a complete bibliographical review, reveals that the young, contrary to what could be expected, are not the sector of the population who is more in favour of divorce as a solution.

"They are the sector which disagrees the most," Becerril said.

"Maybe because these generations have been brought up within situations of divorce and have experienced, to a greater or lesser extent, the breakup process," he stated.

Marital status also defines clear situations as regards the acceptation of divorce.

The divorced and separated agree to a greater extent, whereas the widows and widowers are the sector most in disagreement.

In addition, as regards ideology, those who are closer to positions of extreme left are the group that agrees the most with divorce as a solution for a troubled marriage, whereas people closer to extreme right disagree with such idea.

In his work, Becerril has also analysed the data of the World Values Survey, according to which for Spanish people "divorce is the most justifiable behaviour" among a series of proposed social behaviours such as prostitution, abortion or euthanasia.

With an average of 6.42 out of a possible 10, divorce is the most accepted, followed by homosexuality, with a 6.17.

On the other hand of the scales and against the high acceptation of divorce in Spain, the work of the researcher of the UGR has revealed that Japan is the country (of the 35 countries analysed) where divorce is worst accepted socially with just about 30 percent of those polled in favour, followed by Filipinas and the United States of America.
