Ever been divorced? Going through it now? According to new research from the University of Washington the two most likely months to split are March and August. The thought is couples avoid filing for divorce around Christmas and New Year’s, as well as summer break because these times are considered to be family time.
They also believe it could have something to do with couples giving their marriage one last chance thinking that spending a happy holiday or a family vacation together will help fix their issues.
They found with a lot of couples this didn’t work, in fact the opposite happened. The holiday often doesn’t live up to those expectations and in fact is so stressful that it’s the last straw.
