TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION OR REPORTS
1. Arrange an appointment with the judge who presides over divorce cases in your community and discuss the divorce problem with him. In this connection secure the statistics for divorce cases over a three-year period in his court.
2. Make a case study of a divorced couple whom you know intimately enough to secure data with reference to the tensions, "real" causes, "alleged" causes, and readjustments following divorce.
