Holidays can be a difficult time for people undergoing a divorce in normal times, but this year adds an extra layer of stress. Happy people celebrating Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, Kwanzaa and New Year’s will be fewer and further between than ever before in American history, at least if they know what’s good for them and behave responsibly during a global health crisis.
One of the most emotionally draining elements of divorce for some people is going through the motions of celebration when your family and your heart are irretrievably broken. This year, there are no Rockettes Holiday Spectaculars, no Handel Messiah sing-alongs, no trick-or-treaters, no door-to-door carolers, no wassailers to avoid on the road, no Wal-Mart tramplings, no Tree Lighting ceremonies, no ball dropping.
This year, no matter how bleak your mood and outlook, the world at large is in even worse shape: Covid-19 deaths increasing, economies suffering, trade wars, stock market failures, forest fires, and grounded airplanes.
If enough of us play our cards right—a very big if—the pandemic will begin to ebb away in a year or two. In the meantime, you have plenty of time to work full-steam-ahead on your divorce settlement negotiations.
Thanks to the electronic and virtual prophylactic measures adopted by the State of Connecticut, it is now easier than ever to file your court papers.
