My wife and I are coming up on two years married, but together for 10, and there's no other way I'd have it.

January Is Shown To Be The Most Popular Month For Divorce

For a lot of reasons, January seems to be the most popular month for couples to call it quits and end their relationship.

Newsweek says this is due to a variety of factors.

Some people may just see the first month of the year as a good time for a fresh start.

Other people may not want to have to go through the process of divorcing during the holidays, which would add a lot of stress to an already stressful time of year.

So long as you are sure its the best decision for you and your partner.
