Divorces are becoming available and completely normal solution of a crisis in the family. Although all participants suffer from the divorce, the most affected becomes the child and his future life, no matter a, what age he has to go through this perio. In the study we reflect on marriage and the family, currently going through a crisis. We analyse the divorce as one of the traumatic moments in people's lives and its impact on the child from different points of view. Divorce, however, represents in many cases a redemption from traumatic life situation, therefore the contribution remains open to further professional discussion.
