Divorce Rate Increases in New York as Couple are Forced to Spend Time Together

Divorce rates have rapidly increased in New York due to couples staying in for self-quarantine.

 

In a report by Page Six, most of these couples seeking divorce are involuntarily spending time together in small apartments or houses that can cause tension throughout this critical time.

 

Another factor contributing to the increased divorce rates is the recent loss of jobs and plummeting stocks among the wealthy.

 

Divorce Attorney William D. Zabel said in a statement that his clientele increased to 50 percent since the "On Pause" order in New York City.

 

He said: "We’ve had an increased amount of calls in the past week from people seeking representation for divorce proceedings, a 50 percent increase, and I have been hearing the same from my colleagues at other firms."

 

A similar occurrence has happened in China where couples were also divorcing during their mandatory quarantine (read here). According to Lu Shijun, head of the marriage registry in Dazhou,  people mostly young people, are filing for divorce out of impulse.
