Should you ever ask for a divorce in December?

Should you ever ask for a divorce in December? Yea, why not? If that is when you feel like asking, then go ahead and ask. Of course, if it can wait, I would recommend waiting until January. Most people do. January is the busiest time for divorce filings across the country, and maybe even globally. Why is that? Hard to tell. I used to think it was because people were disapponted with Christmas gifts. But now, I think it’s more a function of January being a fresh, new start and people feeling like out with the old, in with the new, sort of thing. What do you think? Is December inherently a taboo month to ask for divorce? IMHO, it sort of¬†is. I’d wait till January. What is your opinion on this?
