Abstract

Divorce is on the rise as a prominent social issue within contemporary societies and the term “Talaaq” has been linked with a strong social taboo in Pakistani culture. The present research article investigates “The Post-divorce Issues and Challenges of Divorced Mothers from District Sialkot, Pakistan”. A qualitative phenomenological research design was used to explore the firsthand experiences of the divorced mothers. Purposive sampling was employed to recruit seven divorced mothers as study participants. The data was later analyzed thematically and for enhancing the methodological and analytical processes labelling theory was also employed. The findings revealed that during the post-divorce period, divorced mothers demonstrated a high level of distress in providing the right place to their children in society. Considering the challenges encountered by divorced mothers, this study will be an effort to investigate the socioeconomic difficulties experienced by divorced mothers while socializing and meeting the financial needs of their children.
