Young Brit-Asian married couples are more commonly living independently from family. Educated daughter-in-laws find it difficult to adapt to the traditional demands by in-laws and in return in-laws find it hard to understand new ways and accept change causing conflict and differences in opinion.

This scene is the visualisation of a divorced British Asian couple with young children.

This scene is a reflection of British Asian parenting and society today. And there does not seem to be a fix to the problem in sight.

Has tolerance in couples and expectations overridden cultural values and impact on future generations? These are questions being asked of today’s British Asian society.

Divorce in South Asian society was once a very taboo subject and very seldom heard of, even in the UK.

Marriage is always seen as a key milestone in Brit-Asian life.

A UK National Statistics report says the highest proportions of married couples under pension age, with or without children, are were in Asian households.

They felt part of mainstream British society much more comfortably than previous generations.

This led to marriage not becoming the priority in their lives because careers, business and status took centre stage. The trend in arranged marriages declined and the concept of meeting your own partners began to grow.

On a Sunday afternoon, a British Asian man waits in a car and you see two young children in the back seats.

A few moments later a British Asian woman walks up and stands a distance away from the car.

However, this shift in education also introduced more freedom and liberalisation in the next generations of British Asians.
