Relationship experts have predicted January 4, 2010 to be the D-Day for divorces.
Experts point out that the first working day after the New Year often witnesses a sharp rise in divorces.
According to Divorce-online.co.uk, it had a record number of clients in December 2009.
Nearly 12 couples divorce per 1,000 married people and Mark Keenan, divorce-online's managing director, believes the rate will see a 2 percent boost this year.
"We have already had over 100 couples ask us for phone-backs on January 4 - something which has never happened before," the Daily Express quoted him, as saying.
