Does a Bad Economy Stop Divorce?
While financial problems are often cited as a reason for a couple's divorce, it turns out the bad economy may be forcing people to stay together. Many couples simply can not afford the legal fees associated with a divorce and so choose to stay together. However, a bad economy may also make a divorce more contentious. Both spouses want support, and neither is willing or able to give it. While family law offices are busier than ever, people who go through a divorce seem to walk away with less property than they have in the past. With falling home prices and possibly damaged financial holdings, the precious resources that a couple divides during a divorce become more important than ever.
