Most People Get Divorced In March
Divorce is a nasty business and this time of the year business is booming. There has been a surge in searches for divorce information that starts in January and tops out in March, and divorce searches are growing year over year as well.
After spending the holidays together, spouses may come to the realization that they are no longer happy and it is time to end their marriages.
Two main factors that lead to the spike of divorces in March are:
- People often postpone the emotionally stressful and time-consuming procedure until after the holiday season. Or, they stick it out through the holidays for the kids.
- One’s marital status as of Dec. 31 determines whether a person files a joint or an individual tax return.
Sad, but true.
