Lawyers across America are reporting a drop in the amount of clients that they are seeing for divorce. This drop in the number of couples filing for a divorce is the mark of a new trend in the recession.
Some people have stated that during a recession, more people will seek a divorce. This recession is proving a little different with more people staying together. One of the major driving factors was that the housing market has lost quite a bit of value. This loss in value has caused the couples assets to be a lot less. Many individuals may feel that it simply wouldn't be worth it to get a divorce.
Almost anyone would agree that individuals should not be in a relationship that is unfulfilling. It will cause more problems in the long term if the only reason a couple stays together is the recession and a fear of future uncertainty.
