School Holiday Tension!
With child care bills rising and household incomes staying the same it’s no wonder parents are feeling the strain over the holidays.
A study has shown that out of a poll taken as many as a fifth of parents reported considering a separation or divorce by the end of the holidays.
The report suggests that trying to get the correct balance of work and child care as well as financial costs is adding pressure to couples.
This comes with added back up from top divorce lawyers, declaring that when families spend more time together than usual, as they would in holidays, this puts a strain on relationships and helps push them to the brink of divorce.
In the early January, after the holidays have finished, Lawyers have reported seeing an annual spike in inquiries about divorce, a trend which they suggest could be linked to a series of factors stemming from holidays.
Polling for the legal firm Stowe Family Law found that almost 2 out of 10 of parents had re-evaluated their relationship – in some cases including considering divorce or separation – at the end of a holiday period.
