It seems that even divorce finds a slot within the seasons, and a new study suggests that divorce cases rise twice a year; consistently peaking in March and August. That event is timely, for it’s when the earth warms and cools – during a new season – a time of change – and narrowly escaping the hottest and coldest times of the year.

Common knowledge holds that divorces are common after the holidays. There could be many reasons for this, such as a desire for one more family holiday or not wanting to damper the holiday season for family and friends by announcing a divorce.
