Inquires about divorce have increased, as witnessed by divorce attorneys. They also anticipate that more couples will file for divorce as courts reopen in more states during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s really a make-it-or break-it situation. A lot of the complaints I get [from couples] are they don’t bond, they don’t connect, they’re always busy and the people that want to make it work are getting a rare opportunity to do so,” said Jacqueline Newman, a New York City-based divorce lawyer and author of “The New Rules For Divorce.”

“For every marriage that was on the brink, this is what’s going to push people over,” she said.

TV personality Kristin Cavallari and former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler have recently announced their plans to get a divorce.

“With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce. We have nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of,” Cavallari said on an Instagram post.

Relationships and Divorce During Quarantine

Fox Business reported that the couple had their ups and downs pre-quarantine. According to Newman, some of her clients who were not sure about splitting up with a spouse at first are now ready to do so.

“I have clients that haven’t been ready and they’ve been calling me now saying, ‘get me out of here.’ At this moment, there’s not much you can do,” Newman said.

In China, the quarantine has already led to an increase in divorce filings. The closing of offices likely caused the flood of filings, making delayed requests pile up. More than this, couples stay confined together for an extended period of time, thus bringing up underlying conflicts.
