Hey, did you know that we’re coming up on divorce season? It’s true. It’s a season now.
After the magic of the holidays dissipates and we’re working our New Year’s Resolutions to become the best ‘us’ possible, many couples will come to find that their partner may be the factor that is holding them back from being who they had envisioned they would be.
While February will no doubt center around candlelight, red roses, sensual massages, and romantic evenings for some couples, for many of those who are married, it is the month that statistically, most of them will say goodbye. Among the 50% of marriages in the U.S. that end in divorce, February is the busiest month for divorce all year. How weird is that!? The slowest month? October. Halloween must be good for marriage.
Divorce rates have been going up, and not just within one demographic of people. Long-term marriages among older couples are breaking up, and so are many second marriages. We have an infographic to share with some pretty surprising facts about divorce in America. The most interesting, at least to us, is that 1 out of 5 recent divorce case opinions cite Facebook for evidence. That really goes to show just how deeply social media has been intertwined not just into our daily lives, but into some of the biggest and most difficult decisions we will ever make.
The infographic also covers geographical locations, as well as the average cost and length of the divorce process.
