There is no doubt that the economy is wreaking havoc on marriages, but it is also having negative effects on divorces. Many couples that would probably have divorced in better times have found that they really can’t afford to split up.
Before the economy took a tumble, divorce was actually easier, at least for couples that owned a home and each was employed. Home values used to increase on a regular basis, so divorcing couples could use the equity in the home to pay off debts and maybe even make down payments on two smaller homes. Some may even qualify to have their debt removed through the services of Naperville debt relief companies.
