Marriage forgiveness and renewal
In the Quechua people, many families have to distance themselves because of economic need, lack of job opportunities. In most families, the children who are 12 years old leave their communities during school holidays, go to the cities to earn some money for their school supplies, the parents also travel for longer times, the wives stay at home with minor children and caring for their animals.
Very soon the marital problems appear: Adultery and abuse in addition to others. Family leadership is assumed by the mother, which in turn causes other difficulties upon the husband’s return, the children are unaware of the father’s authority and dysfunctional families are born.
