Author Says Holidays “Busiest” as Spouses Shop for Divorce Lawyers

She says that "divorce is planned prior to the holidays and executed after the first." Ms. Pekala states that many people don't want to rock the family boat during what is typically a festive time of year, out of deference to children, extended families and personal reputations. There may also be psychological considerations of making the first of the year a fresh start. Source: Please click here for the complete story (last visited December 18, 2005, reo).
