The holidays are a time of joy and celebration for many couples, but for others, it can be a difficult time. The holiday season is often cited as one of the main times of the year when divorce rates increase. So what are the reasons behind this? And what should you do if you are considering divorce during the holidays?
Why Divorce Rates Increase After the Holidays
There are a number of reasons why couples may choose to divorce during the holidays. For some, the stress of the holiday season can be too much to handle when they are already facing difficulties in their relationship. The holidays can also be a time when families come together and couples may realize that they want different things for their future. Couples might also learn of their incompatibility during the holiday season and decide to end their relationship. Whatever the reason, divorce during or immediately following the holidays is not uncommon.
What to Do if You Are Considering Divorce
If you are considering divorce, it is important to do what is best for your individual situation. You don’t have to rush to a divorce attorney’s office immediately, so if you need the time to financially and emotionally prepare for this process, you can take all the time you need.
You might wish to discuss divorce with your spouse to determine if you believe you can reconcile. If you believe that you can work together to restore your marriage, you might wish to try before beginning the divorce process.
