You know what happens when you go through a prolonged recession? Divorce rates drop.
It’s pretty simple economics. It costs more money to live alone in two separate spaces, then to live together in one. It cost money to get divorced, you can live in misery together much cheaper!
You know what happens when the economy rebounds and everyone is getting those new shiny jobs!? Divorce rates increase.
It’s pretty simple economics. Why live with an asshole when you have your own money and can find someone who will treat you like the princess that you are!
Read the whole post over at The Tim Sackett Project (an FOT contributor blog).
If you Google “Tim Sackett” you’ll find our Tim, and a truck driver chaplain. Our Tim is NOT the truck driver chaplain, although how awesome would that be if he was!? He is a prolific writer in the HR and TA space who just happens to also run an Engineering and IT contract staffing agency (HRU Technical Resources) out of Michigan. He also writes every day at his own blog, the Tim Sackett Project. Weirdly, he’s known as an expert in workplace hugging, which was kind of cool years ago, but now seems painfully creepy, but we still love him and he’s fairly harmless. Tim is also on the board of the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP), lifetime Michigan State Spartan fan, husband to a Hall of Fame wife, 3 sons, and his best friend Scout. He also wrote a book with SHRM called The Talent Fix, you can find it on Amazon.
