Obviously, yesterday was Valentine’s Day. So what does that make today? Usually, it’s the most popular day to file for divorce all year. That’s right, you heard it here first, Valentine’s Day may have the power to make or break your marriage whether you believe it or not.
Valentine’s Day is meant to be a day of celebration of love. A day dedicated to showing our spouses or significant others how much we love and appreciate them. However, for some couples, it’s a day that leave them unfulfilled, or it awakens them to other problems in their marriage, or, in some cases, it’s the day they find out that their spouse gave a better Valentine’s Day gift to someone with whom they are having an affair.
It may seem over dramatic, but Valentine’s Day could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. The holiday comes and goes, and your may feel slighted, unappreciated, or even mis-led.
We understand that many people believe Valentine’s Day to be a gimmick, or just a “Hallmark Holiday.” As it turns out, that attitude causes a spike in divorce papers being drafted, served and filed.
Divorce is never anyone’s first option, but for some people, it’s the best option. When your spouse feels unappreciated, unloved, or unsupported, your home life can take a turn for the worse. This kind of environment can negatively impact your personal life, your work life, and also your children or other loved ones.
