"Before marrying, you are supposed to know if your partner has all the qualities required including satisfying yourself with her/his behaviour, family, social ability and if she/he can become a social person. You find out that a married person doesn't know even the history of his wife/her husband. Getting into wedlock while the married couple are 'blind' to each other's history, according to Sheikh Mataka, in most cases makes their marriage start to sway once everyone starts showing their real colours.Besides that, Fr Festo Liheta of Kiwalani Parish of the Catholic Archdiocese Catholic of Dar es Salaam says that the increased enlightenment on the rights of women, improved women's income and marital sex problems have, to a large extent, contributed to an increase in divorces.It is not necessary for those who divorce in courts of law to tender their divorce papers to the Registration Insolvency and Trusteeship Agency (Rita) as statistics of the Agency show that the number of divorces has been low compared to the statistics in the NBS survey.Despite a few number of documented divorces, Rita says that the number of the married couples divorcing has been increasing year after year in the country as in Dar es Salaam alone the number of divorcees has shot up from 106 in 2014 to 149 last year, something that tells the real situation of NBS's survey.They also involved religious leaders, but still the husband did not want to listen to anybody, a situation that led to the divorce."I didn't like to go through the ordeal of divorce because we already had a child, but his behaviour made my life miserable. And I'm told that he has already married another woman, who, I think, was the one behind his sudden behavioural change," says Esther.
This is contrary to the past, whereby women tolerated because of getting little income," says Fr Liheta, who carried out a study about marriage breakups.
This means that currently for every 100 people who have reached the age of marriage in the country, two have been divorced.
The study further reveals that out of 100 who are marriageable, 40 are not yet married.
Besides, four couples out of 100 have separated, meaning that their chances of divorce increase if a lasting solution is not found to iron out their differences.
Normally, marriage breakups deny the children the love of both parents.
