Divorce rates skyrocket in U.S. amid COVID-19

Divorce rates have spiked in the U.S. during the coronavirus pandemic as couples have been stuck at home for months.

The number of people looking for divorces was 34 percent higher from March through June compared to 2019, according to new data collected Legal Templates, a company that provides legal documents.

The combination of stress, unemployment, financial strain, death of loved ones, illness, homeschooling children, mental illnesses, and more has put a significant strain on relationships.

The data showed that 31 percent of the couples admitted lockdown has caused irreparable damage to their relationships.

What was meant to be will be.
 
Not surprising. Everyone is staying home, finding out what their spouses are really like, and concluding "**** this, I'm out of here."
 
It seems to me that this forced togetherness exacerbated problems and tensions that would have played out eventually. I'd like to see if the divorce rate plummets after things go back to normal. My guess is that the overall rate will remain the same as it was pre-COVID.
