The study discovered that traditional and modem counselling played a preventative role in reducing divorce incidences, additionally, meditative and acceptance roles on divorce cases. Literature reviewed information on a global, national and local scale on divorce rates. Rates were higher in European countries as compared to African rates. In Zambia, rates were lower but increasing in the town Kabwe. Trends of divorce in Africa were taken from the study conducted by the McGill University in 2015, which showed that African countries like Namibia Senegal, Togo and Zambia have relatively stable trend in divorce rates; this was attributed to the gap in statistics as most African marriages are contracted under customary arrangements which are difficult to track especially in the trends of divorce.
