Divorce Monday: Today is the day when couples call it quits

Date Posted: 06.01.2014

 The first Monday of the new year has earned the nickname from ­legal experts as it is the most popular day to file for divorce.

Marital strains come to a head over the festive season as people spend a lot of time together and problems are highlighted.
It leads to a deluge of calls to ­solicitors when the children go back to school, which coincides with the first day back to work for many people, according to the website DivorceDepot.
Its survey of 1,000 people found the biggest marital strains were finances, which affected one in three people, followed by excess alcohol, in-laws and rows over cooking and gift buying.
But for 12 per cent, just spending extra time with their partner caused the cracks to show
