Divorce is on the rise among middle aged and phenomenon of “mistresses and partners”have emerged.During last few decades, women have became dominant players in social and economic life of Mongolia. Young people want to be independent. All this causes disintegration of the traditional Mongolian familial structure concludes the researcher.
The changing socio-economic condition of Mongolian families require complex solution and development of advanced legal acts and laws. Current trend encourages individualism and thus family relationship may grow cold and isolated. Traditional Mongolian families are based on closeness of family members and sharing of common values and this is directly in contrast with modern life, said the researcher.
