Why Divorce Applications In New York Spike In Quarantine

According to reports, divorce rates have rapidly increased in New York due to couples staying in for self-quarantine.

It was only a couple of days ago, when Nigerian relationship expert, Joro Olumofin suggested that a social experiment may be borne out of the forced quarantine informed by the infectious COVID-19.

Joro had asserted that spending a lot of time together in quarantine without any distractions is something most couples are not prepared for. He opined that a lot of marriages will be over by the end of the quarantine; well, it appears he may not be hallucinating after all.

In a report by Page Six, 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, reports claim.

Divorce Attorney William D. Zabel according to a number of publications, 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.
