The role of the modern family in child rearing is diminishing. The historical role of the fathers is changing – they were the decision makers of the family and they were the main breadwinners as well. The women were homemakers. The emancipation of women has brought their dissatisfaction with their established family role. In the case of a family problem they suddenly could choose to leave the family rather than facing the issue and searching for a solution. Today, obtaining a divorce is often faster and simpler than obtaining many other official documents. The children are those who pay the most for this regrettable situation. Even when the two people are not able to live together any more, the children have the right to have two parents. This is guaranteed by law; however, the real situation is frequently different.
