The 7th January is the time when your house looks bare having taken down your Christmas decorations and you’re making a new home for the mountains of presents that the family have received. It’s also the time when you naturally take stock of where you are and where you want to be this time next year.
The 7th January is also known for something else – D Day â€“ and sadly this D is for divorce.
Sometimes called the January Jilt, the 7th January is the date when divorce lawyers are their busiest. Couples have spent two weeks at home together with their extended families and they’ve also perhaps had the added stresses and strains of the financial pressure of Christmas. They’ve decided that enough is enough.
Not so long ago the main reason for divorce was adultery, but now it’s much more common to find that they’re going their separate ways due to simply falling out of love with each other. Couples no longer feel that they have to stay together ’till death us do part’ and are free to part company if and when they wish to do so.
