With divorces occurring at an ever-growing rate lately, it’s better to be safe than sorry. A new study has recently revealed the time of year when there’s a rise in divorce rates, so watch out.

In the study conducted at the University of Washington, researchers analysed fourteen years of divorce filings and found a pattern in the rates of divorce.

Researchers Julie Brines and Brian Seferini found that divorce rates tend to be at a comparative high in March and August. The two months are in line with the end of winter and summer.

“The timing is not necessarily because these are the best times of year to get divorced, but more they are the least bad time to begin the unpleasant undertaking,” reports Independent.

Brines explained that the end of winter and summer are also the end of holiday seasons, which inject the idea of separation.

“Holidays create expectations of an ideal family life that will not be met and the stress of Christmas or the school holidays can reveal cracks in a relationship. Once a couple has made it through the ordeal, they’ll file for divorce so as to avoid it the following year,” said Brines.
