Divorce is on the rise in Hong Kong and the phenomenon has spread to nearly all sectors of society - rich and poor, young and old. The total number of divorces granted in 2012 in Hong Kong was more than 10 times the number in 1981.
The recent murder cases involving Hong Kong youths have undoubtedly left people shaken and caused many to question just what has gone wrong with our society. Discussions have primarily been about the "hidden youths" in Hong Kong. Typically, they have poor social skills but are very active in the cyber world. Although the murder cases are certainly extreme, the underlying issues must be taken seriously.
