Avvo.com, the attorney rating site, reports that divorces skyrocket after Valentine’s Day.
Attorney Kelly Chang attributes this to two groups of people. The first are people who made a New Year’s resolution to get divorced and are just now getting around to it. The second are people who are waiting to see how their spouse acts on Valentine’s Day and will either reconcile or divorce.
Divorce lawyer Cary Chefetz says some people are just waiting until they know what ther spouse’s bonus and income situation will be in the New Year.
