Some stressful situations tend to bring people closer together, such as man-made disasters like acts of terrorism. Natural disasters have the opposite effect, sometimes even doubling the divorce rate.
Disaster and Divorce Statistics:
Why Do Natural Disasters Increase the Divorce Rate?
That is not the case in a situation such as Hurricane Irma, where you had days, and, in some instances, a week to prepare. This is where the difference in attitudes and personal coping styles can tear apart a marriage.
If one person does not act in what the other views a timely fashion, such as putting up shutters, buying supplies, making decisions, the other party could become upset, angry, and even shut-down. If a loss occurs following the storm, especially if it was due to one party’s negligence, that may be an insurmountable situation to overcome.
Stress, anxiety, and loss can lead to depression, abuse, violence, and any number of unpleasant emotions and actions.
If post-storm stress has you thinking about divorce, or if you are looking for the easiest, quickest, and most inexpensive way to get a divorce, then Florida Divorce Law’s Basic Divorce package is what you need.
