Divorce in decline: Cutting the knot too costly for some

The recession, though “most likely over” according to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, has been affecting more than just people’s jobs.

It has, in some cases, made unhappily married couples more miserable because they can’t afford to divorce.

The number of divorces being filed in court is down substantially, according to the Chicago-based Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. In November 2008, they polled 1,600 members, who said divorce filings are down by 40 percent.

Most survey respondents, by an almost two-to-one margin, said they typically see a decline, rather than a rise, in the number of divorces during economic downturns.
