4 Relationship Issues That Could Lead to Divorce
Signs Divorce Could Be a Good Option
With many couples both working from home, people are spending more time than ever with their partner, which can take a toll on a relationship and Matt says for many couples this arrangement has been a "disaster."
He notes one study on couples found that intimacy is down for 34 percent, including sex. He also shares divorce is up 20 percent when compared to last year and 34 percent of couples in the survey said that "irreparable damage" had been done to their relationship during the lockdown.
To prevent your relationship from falling apart under the strain of the pandemic, Matt suggests:
- Try to go back to the structure you had in place before the pandemic
- Make sure to spend time apart from your partner each day
- Exercise, which Matt says will help to relieve stress and boost your endorphins
"Sometimes away means better when you are together," Dr. Ian Smith adds.
