divorce, conflict, family, privacy


Although in Romania the number of divorces is considered to be in a continuous increase, in reality, the data of the National Institute of Statistics show that in Romania, the divorce rate remains constant and in small shares. In 1990, the Romanian divorce rate was 1.42 ‰ and the latest national INS data show a general indicator of 1.39 ‰.

The low divorce rate in Romania does not imply, at the same time, a high rate of marital happiness in the Romanian family. With many cultural influences, the condition of being divorced does not enjoy much tolerance, so some of the potential legal separation decisions are obscured by traditional imperatives that block or delay the divorce.

However, the new legal proceedings after 2010 regarding the option of legal separation at a notary or before the registrar have created the premise of a simplified divorce that avoids the courts, long and frequent appearances, as well as greater exposure.

The study aims to analyze the motivations of individuals for divorce at the notary or the registrar, starting from the dilemma of arguing a simplified legal procedure or a decision related to a better protection of privacy.

The paper is based on a qualitative research, the method used being the sociological survey, and the research tool - the semi-structured interview. For the data collection, the technique of non-probabilistic qualitative sampling of convenience was used.
