“The evidence that the pandemic might lead to an uptick in divorce rates came early this year.
By April, the interest in divorce had already increased by 34% in the US, with newer couples being the most likely to file for divorce. In fact, a full 20% of couples who had been married for five months or less sought divorce during this time period, compared with only 11% in 2019.
Some predict a continuation of this trend, anticipating that divorce rates will increase between 10% and 25% in the second half of the year.”
That’s some pretty bad news going into the holiday season, which can put stress on a relationship in the best of times. Throw in a year of pandemic and it’s a recipe for disaster.
