 US Records Rise In Divorce Rates Around Valentine's Day

A new study has revealed that Valentine's Day, which is an occasion for sweethearts to exchange gifts, has increasingly become a time for divorce in the United States.

Data compiled by Avvo.com, a site that offers free ratings and profiles for lawyers and licensed MDs, found that divorce filings skyrocket about 40 percent this time of year.

"Over the past two years we've seen an average increase of 40 percent in the number of requests for divorce lawyers around Valentine's Day, compared to the previous six months," the New York Post quoted Mark Britton, founder and CEO of Avvo, as saying.

"Furthermore, the number of questions about divorce has soared 36 percent during that same time. Indeed, there's definitely a major Valentine's spike when it comes to divorce," he said.

New Jersey lawyer Cary Cheifetz agreed the findings.

"We see a definite spike in divorce cases around Valentine's Day. I see it as a combination of cabin fever, people waiting until after the holidays and most importantly, people waiting until they know what their spouse's bonus and income situation will be in the New Year," Cheifetz said.
