AFTER CONFINEMENT: DIVORCE EPIDEMIC?

The stress of isolation could affect the relationship.

One of the collateral effects of the coronavirus, which surely was not among the possible consequences analyzed by the government, are the problems of coexistence that have occurred in many Spanish homes; One of the reasons is spending too much time together that has brought back old and new couple conflicts. The closed door exacerbates the annoying effect we sometimes feel towards your partner's little hobbies.
We now spend 24 hours at home and 7 days a week, spending time with our partner more hours than we are used to; the lack of physical and social activity during confinement causes us stress and anxiety, so there are friction of coexistence, and many can decide to end the relationship, for their own mental health.
Just as it happens to us on summer vacations or Christmas, when we spend most of our time with the family, the coronavirus crisis will cause many couples to decide to divorce in Spain as soon as the state of alarm decreed by the Government has ended.

The Chinese city of Xi'an, which has already passed through the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic, has experienced a spike in divorces after compulsory quarantine has ended.
According to information published by the Chinese newspaper Global Times, the increase in divorce requests began to register on March 1, 2020. However, as the newspaper reports, some couples only quarreled during confinement, but once resumed the normal rhythm of life, things calm down; There were even some couples who started the process but repented and gave up divorcing. Some young couples even decided to remarry while their divorce certificate was being printed.

If you want this confinement due to coronavirus not to take its toll on your partner, don't forget:

  • Communication, fundamental.
  • Living together is not a race to see who is better and who does more.
  • Tolerance, we are doing the best we can.
  • Understanding and support, we help each other.
  • Consensus, we are a team.
  • Time for intimate moments as a couple and in solitude too.
  • Not making final decisions at such a critical time as this.

“If you try hard and win, everything will be fine. But don't forget, in the face of frustration and helplessness, zero violence. ”
