Greetings Neighbors,

Everyone is fully aware of the tough economic times right now whether you're affected tremendously or barely affected at all. Along with financial troubles sometimes troubles can arise within your relationship or marriage. One major question today is have the current recession impacted the percentages of divorce?

According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, married couples are actually sticking together during the recession. They also revealed that 57% of lawyers surveyed from the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers reported a decrease in the amount of divorce filings since the end of last year (2008).

Could it be that married couples are realizing it may not be a bad idea to work things out and stick together through the tough economic times, instead of putting an even larger strain on finances by going through divorce?
