Marriage and Divorce both are the different aspects of someone’s life because marriage creates a sense of love or care and bond of accountability where as divorce is a separation process or bursting bond of responsibility, stirred up hatred in the relationship. The age of getting married in United States is 18 years while in China, the man should not be younger than 22 years and the woman should not be younger than 20 years and late marriage and late child birth is encouraged in China. It has been examined though various researches that the divorce rates are increasing day by day due to various reasons as stated above and Americans marry, divorce and remarry rates are higher than China as it has become the perception of American population that the divorce is the only solution when a couple don’t seem to work out their marriage (Jacobson, and Burton, 2011). Therefore, this has become the main cause of the increasing rates of divorce in the United States.
Apart from this, United States is also juggling with the major issue of same sex marriage as many people are annoyed with this action of American government while, Chinese government have not legally approved such kind of action (Dominican Republic, 2010). On the other hand, the major reason of declining rate of marriage in both the countries is the invention of “the birth control pill” as it has allowed the people to get intimate without getting married with the little fear of an unwanted pregnancy which can be terminated easily. Therefore, both the countries differ in several aspects in their respective legal process of marriage and divorce.
