This morning when I went for a morning walk with my cousin, she told me a very interesting thing that she had come across the internet. It was a feature on how divorces were contributing in a major way towards the ecological imbalance of the earth! The point of view of the author was that when a divorce or separation occurs, very obviously, the husband and wife splits ways. Till then, along with their lives, they were also sharing household equipments like the refrigerator, the television, the washing machine, the computer, the car or two-wheeler, the microwave, the geyser, the cooking gas connection, etc. but after the divorce, as both go on their separate ways, one of the two is forced to buy one more set of the very same equipments, for their personal use! That leads to more consumption of electricity and natural gas along with increased emission of gasses that damage the earth’s protective layer. This is how a divorce contributes to the earth’s ecological imbalance. Considering the fact that divorces are becoming more common these days, isn’t this a scary prospect???
