This is an assumption that has been made though because a lot more has to be considered in line with marriage dissolutions because the argument has been challenged to the fact that they overlook financial changes that may occur in the future in the lives of these families (Armstrong 50).
This is a qualitative research method which involves undertaking two interviews amongst 30000 adults from 15000 households in a period of six years. Every three years a new panel of interviewees is introduced, therefore two panels of these interviewees overlap at one point over the years. The survey is carried out by individuals aged 16 and above (Armstrong 44).
The author shows us that it is true that the poverty levels increase right after a break up of a couple but clearly the trend reverts back in a year’s time especially when a financial settlement have been met. “Findings of this study also indicate that a large majority of women entered into low income during the breakup year and remained in poverty for only 1 year (Gadalla 235).”
Additionally, an indication that the survey was shorter term is the fact that it was undertaken within a spell of two to three years. “Similarly, the fact that 3.5% of women and 2.6% of men fell below the LIM for 2 years does not mean that their economic circumstances were unchanged during the 2 years. It only means that in both years, their incomes were below the LIM (Gadalla 236).” The main idea is to show how gender differences affect poverty rates in the event of marriage dissolution. The idea is clearly reflected in the fact that women are becoming very poor in these circumstances.
