The well being of adolescents has become topic of increasing interest among researchers in general. It
is now regarded as something worthy of empirical investigation by researchers in eliciting without
faking, the true status of the living and parenting conditions of adolescents (Marks 1998; Leug and Jim
Park 2000). Newman (1994) however observed that there has been great increase in divorce rate that
is threatening the marriage institution on the pages of parent media and also on the electronic media.
Worse still, the failure rate of second marriages has been found to be higher than that of first-time
marriages which in-turn has effects directly and indirectly on the involved-child.
