Divorce or Dissolution of Marriage, is an emotionally and economically taxing event. The cost of divorce can often exacerbate the struggles that married couples are already facing during a rough time in their lives. Divorce in a bad economy can be even more difficult during a time when people are out of work, or have decreased hours due to a global pandemic.  Increases in unemployment and income often influence married couples to stay together despite the unhappiness they may be facing. However, when couples feel that their relationship is irreparable and divorce is inevitable, a struggling national economy and dire personal economic situation can often lead to individuals feeling that an immediate divorce is the best solution.
