    Michigan divorce summerSummer means relaxation, vacation, and family togetherness. But each of these areas is fraught with disaster when a marriage is already on the rocks. There are certain types of divorces that can come during or after summer, and there are some common reasons that catapult the Michigan divorce decision to the top of the to-do list. January may be known as “divorce month,” but August isn’t far behind.

    The Post-Vacation Divorce

    Most Americans vacation in July than any other month of the year. They may look forward to a much-needed getaway, whether as a couple or with the entire family. Some couples see their vacation as a chance to give their marriage one last shot and try to repair frayed connections, or as the last chance to be together as a family.

    However, any vacation is fraught with stress and potential screw-ups: Someone forgets to bring the passports, print the boarding passes, reserve a hotel, pack the beach chairs, bring the vacation credit card, or simply takes their sweet time doing everything when you’re ready to leave, now. Any and every botched responsibility or moment of forgetfulness surrounding a vacation could expose fissures in a marriage and mean disaster for an unhappily married couple.

    And it is post-vacation when a pair may finally decide that their irreconcilable differences cannot be overcome. The goodness they thought might happen away from home never materialized, and it never will. They are disillusioned, disappointed, and tired of trying.

    The Pre-Back-to-School Divorce

    Anticipating the start of the school year may make couples who are strongly considering a divorce accelerate their decision to split. The end of summer signals a return to reality after a lazy summer or highlights a common time of reevaluation. Instead of waiting until the kids’ school year is over, or breaking up the family on a major school break (and ruining holidays in the process), they pull the trigger right before school even begins.

    This choice may not be the best thing for the kids, but for some couples it simplifies the parenting time planning that happens ahead of every school year. They determine who is responsible for buying school supplies and clothes, who’s doing pick-up and drop-off, who’s managing after-school activities, who will be where on what days of the week. Consistency is the main goal of a Michigan divorce that is filed at the end of August, but it certainly doesn’t get any child’s school year off to a great start.

    The Too-Hot Divorce

    When the temperatures rise, so do tempers. Relationship issues that you may have been able to deal with throughout the rest of the year may become unbearable in the hot and humid summer months. Any argument between fractured couples could be the last argument before one person finally snaps and says, “I want a divorce.”

    Heat impairs a person’s ability to think clearly and negatively affects mood. Increased sweating and heart rate trigger the nervous system’s flight-or-fight response. While many people look forward to the unpredictability of summer, unhappily married couples can flounder in the lackadaisical schedule and behavior. Routine helps keep couples together. A break from the norm can also shed light on the cracks in a marriage.
