Marriage and Divorce
Tennessee has one of the highest divorce rates in the U.S. Because divorce is so common, it may seem like adjustment to divorce has become easier for everyone involved. In reality, divorce is hard for all family members, especially children. Because of concerns about the negative impact of divorce on children, that Tennessee State Legislature passed a law that requires divorcing parents of minor children to attend a parent education program.
