DIVORCE RATES SPIKE ACROSS CHINA AFTER ‘COUPLES SPEND TOO MUCH TIME TOGETHER DURING CORONAVIRUS QUARANTINE’
You really can spend too much time with your spouse. The manager of a marriage registry in south-western China says over 300 couples have schedule appointments to get a divorce since February 24th.
Officials believe the increase in divorce requests could be caused by the fact that partners have spent too much time in close quarters under quarantine. Another factor could be due to delayed applications due to the council offices closing for nearly a month during the coronavirus epidemic.
