Chief economist of Moody’s Analytics Inc. Mark Zandi stated in an interview that as the economy stabilizes, couples who have held off divorce due to a tough economy may be reconsidering taking this step, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday, February 18.

Mr. Zandi believes that in the coming years, people may witness a steadily-increasing divorce rate in the country. This is because favorable economic times allow couples to take action regarding life-changing events such as divorce. The report also revealed that the country’s positive housing market has created higher house prices, providing more assets for a divorcing couple.
