Money worries will help cut divorce rate

We reported in our Newsletter for Professionals that a study by Grant Thonton suggests that money worries in the recession will help cut the divorce rate.


I don't think so. It will stop some people from starting a divorce just at the moment if they, as some do believe me, carefully calculate the best moment to pursue a financial and divorce settlement from their spouse. That is not normally when the economy is poor, their pension is down and the value of their assets reduced. But money worries cause immense stress within a relationship and often people find it is the final straw in a relationship which has been unhappy anyway.

Anybody will know that living in a deeply unhappy house and relationship cannot be sustained for long. The tactical moment to divorce is not an issue for most.
