The Reality of Divorce

A mini-exhibit focused on the topic of divorce, specifically showing the reality that divorce can happen even to those who belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Abstract

The purpose of the project is to take an objective look at divorce rates within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The first part of solving a problem is to acknowledge that there is a problem. This project encourages viewers to recognize divorce as a real problem that should be addressed and informs viewers of various general causes and preventative matters.

I plan to utilize primary and secondary research methods to investigate the problem. I plan to conduct surveys and questionnaires as a part of my primary research. For secondary research, I plan to utilize books, articles, peer reviewed/scholarly journals and more using BYU-Idaho’s library database. Other forms of research include: utilizing the IDEO method cards emphasizing “Learn”, “Look”, “Ask” and “Try”, and utilizing differential qualitative and quantitative research.

Ultimately, the project is meant to showcase the reality of divorce and what can be done to prevent divorce.
