Question description

Instructional Objectives for this activity:
  • Discuss social structure and explain how one's location in this structure affects that person's perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors.
  • Apply the basic ideas and focus of the following three major theoretical perspectives: the structural-functional paradigm, the conflict paradigm, and the symbolic interaction paradigm.
  • Divorce is a major trend in our society. Today, nearly half of all marriages end in divorce. Sociologists see a wide variety of factors that may lead to and prevent this occurrence. In this lesson, we'll explore divorce at length, as well as the stigma that was once associated with it.

    Please respond to all of the following prompts:

    • What factors increase our likelihood for divorce? What factors decrease our likelihood for divorce?
    • What is a social stigma? Is there still a stigma associated with divorce?
    • Earlier in the course we talked a bit about religion. What role does religion play in an individual's choice to avoid or proceed with divorce?
    • Apply symbolic interactionism to the stigma that may be associated with divorce.
