CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
1.1        Background to the Study

However, in modern times, the marital roles of the marriage partners have undergone changes. It is possible now to for instance find the male marriage partner acting as house keeper and the female marriage partner acting as breadwinner.....
