We assume the pandemic has people rethinking not only their occupation but their marriage status.
Lauren Cook-McKay from DivorceAnswers.com says “spending more time together, having more time in general and having limited opportunities to leave the house may have resulted in some discovering their partner’s hidden traits, such as extra-marital affairs or dishonest behavior.”
