Divorce filings drop as COVID-19 lockdown mends marriages

Some experts predicted a flood of divorce filings when city courts re-opened for non-emergency business last month, believing that cooped-up couples would race to declare, “I don’t!”

But the number of married people looking to leave is dramatically down, dropping 45 percent in the last four weeks over the typical monthly average.

Even some who were headed for splitsville before the outbreak got their marriages back on track, lawyers said.


It's an ill wind that blows no good.

If lots of people have got poorer there's presumably less moolah for the about to be ex-wife to make off with.
