Florida is known for its mild weather, but the state might experience seasonal peaks in divorces just like other areas of the country. Sociology researchers have collected compelling data that points to biannual surges in divorce filings. According to their study of a 14-year period of divorce data in the state of Washington, March and August consistently marked high points in the numbers of people seeking divorces.
Many Florida couples end up divorcing, and people might wonder the reason why so many marriages end. While multiple factors might be at play, a study points to the relationship between the risk of divorce and the work status of the individual spouses.
