This study is aiming to investigate the psychological trauma that most people are experiencing during and after divorce and deconstruction of life. This investigation takes both of us into the role of St. Athanasius Parish- Fairfield at Mthatha which is at former Transkei in Eastern Cape. The problem which is caused by divorce, is physically, psychological, socially, economically and spiritual draining. The researchers concern through this thesis is to find out the role of the church as it seeks to take care for those affected by divorce. This thesis is an attempt to explore new theological perspective and utilize the available ones, which have already been dealing with issues that address trauma of divorce and to disclose their coping mechanism. The point of departure should be to equip those who embark on pastoral care in order to reach out to people who are based in rural areas who are experiencing the problem of divorce, deconstruction and reconstruction.
