Divorce rates rapidly rises in New York as couples are forced to spend more time together in lockdown

Divorce rates have rapidly increased in New York due as couples are now forced to stay together for far too long self-quarantine.

Page Six reports that most of these couples seeking divorce are involuntarily spending time together in small apartments or houses that can cause tension throughout this critical time.

Another factor contributing to the increased divorce rates is the recent loss of jobs and plummeting stocks among the wealthy.

Divorce Attorney William D. Zabel said in a statement that his clientele increased to 50 percent since the “On Pause” order in New York City.

He said: “We’ve had an increased amount of calls in the past week from people seeking representation for divorce proceedings, a 50 percent increase, and I have been hearing the same from my colleagues at other firms.”

A similar occurrence has happened in China where couples were also divorcing during their mandatory quarantine. According to Lu Shijun, head of the marriage registry in Dazhou,  people mostly young people, are filing for divorce out of impulse.
