February is often recognized for its extremely popular holiday for lovers,
Valentine’s Day, which occurs on February 14. However, this month
has also become widely recognized for a contradictory reason! Recently,
studies have shown that the amount of
divorces skyrocket in February. In fact, Avvo.com reports that divorce filings
increase by nearly 40% during that time of year. Many wonder, “Why
February? Why around Valentine’s Day?”
Some sources state number of divorce filings increases during this month
for a number of reasons. Below is a list of possible explanations:
1. Couples Discover How Tight They Are on Money
Studies show that in January, more people file for bankruptcy than any
other time of year. Of course, these financial problems become highlighted
soon after, causing many individuals to notice their financial problems.
These complications can cause couples to separate.
2. Holiday Bonuses Have Passed
Because many people receive monetary bonuses during the holiday season,
many persons contemplating divorce may wait until after their spouse has
received their bonus before deciding to file. Of course, once the couple
has received the money, it can be easier for a spouse to make a decision.
3. Better to Have a Late New Year’s Resolution Than None at All
Some people decide to make New Year’s resolutions a little late.
Persons in rocky relationships may decide they want to pursue healthier
and happier relationships at the start of the New Year.
4. An Unfaithful Spouse Has a Greater Risk of Being Caught on Valentine’s Day
During the holidays, people who are cheating on their spouses often try
to please their lovers and their spouses. These types of situations can
become complicated right away, causing spouses to become suspicious and
even aware of the unfaithful acts.
