The end of summer means more divorces according to this story by United Press International, rivaled only by Christmas and New Year’s as a peak time for ending marriages.

“You know the phone is going to start ringing like crazy that time of year,” says Gaetano Ferro of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

One reason, say divorce lawyers, is that couples want to take it easy in the summer and wait until family vacations are over and the school year has begun before filing for divorce.
