Is divorce seasonal?

You may notice that during certain times of the year you hear about more people getting divorced in Texas than at other times of the year. Is this just a fluke or is there something here? Has it ever been shown that divorce is seasonal? 

LiveScience notes a study done on divorces shows that there are two main times during the year when divorce seems to be at its highest, the months of March and August. These months are interesting because they both follow certain times of the year when family plays a huge role. 

March is after the holiday season. The holidays are stressful and can be difficult on a relationship. However, it has been shown that people are not likely to separate during this time. Instead, they try to stick it out and work on their issues. By March, when all the holiday cheer is gone, people may realize there is no fixing the relationship, which could be a reason why this is a peak month.

When it comes to August, the feeling is this falls after the summer months where family vacations occur. Again, like the holidays, people may want to give one last family vacation a try to see if it could revive their marriage. However, by August, it is clear things will not work. It could also be due to school starting and parents wanting to separate the homes before the kids go back to school. 

Despite this data, divorces occur all year. There is no conclusive proof that divorce is actually seasonal. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
