DIVORCE AND ITS AFTERMATH AS SEEN IN SELECTED IGBO NOVELS

CHAPTER ONE

 INTRODUCTION 

1.1 Background of the Study
 Any activity carried out in human society employs the use of language. Language is usually seen as that which is purely human and none instinctive method of communicating ideas, emotions and desires by means of voluntarily produced symbols. Language is also defined as an arbitrary system of symbols which enables man to communicate an infinite number and variety of messages, meanings, intentions, through requests and items of information. It is a medium of communication which helps the members of a community interact and relate with one another. From the above definitions, one can say that language is a means or channel through which information, norms, views, ideas, intentions are disseminated. However, language in any society serves diverse functions and one of its crucial functions lies on language being a means of cultural identity. This thereby draws a relationship between language and culture. In almost all societies, marriage is one of the cultural practices and it can be terminated by either party of the union for one reason or the other through a process called divorce. Divorce or dissolution of marriage is the final termination of a marital union, canceling the traditional or legal duties and responsibilities of marriage and dissolving the bonds of matrimony between husband and wife (The Parsi Marriage and Divorce Act, 1936). Divorce laws vary considerably around the world but in most countries they require the sanction of court or other authorities in conjunction with legal processes. In most African societies, socio-cultural factors or conditions have over the years influenced divorce, and these have been matters of concern to spouses. Reasons that could lead to divorce abound. These include infidelity, early marriage, negligence, barrenness etc. Divorce thereby has many implications on the individuals or persons who are involved in it as well as the society. Instances are seen when children of divorced homes turn miscreants to the entire cultural, economic, religious and political values of society which in turn lead to holiganism, deviance or even terrorism as being experienced in today Nigeria. This situation then calls for a reconsideration of the causes and effects of divorce in society, exploring a more innovative solution to it in other to bridge the gap between the society and the practice of divorce. Effort is also made in this study concentrating on the language use in the practice of divorce. This necessity demands an investigation into divorce in some selected Igbo novels using a sociolinguistic analysis since literature mirrors the society and its culture. Reasons that could lead to divorce could be found in Ọfomata’s Ihe Ọjọọ Gbaa Afọ, Okebalama’s Ọdi
