“It seems the Olympics, as well as bringing Britain together, kept couples together too

Online divorce website Divorce-Online reports that the Olympics were good for married couples after divorce enquiries dropped to a summer time low during the two weeks in July and August when the games were on.

The firm believes it was down to the feel good factor generated by the games and more families spending happy time together as Team GB romped to an impressive haul of 65 medals beating their medal haul in Beijing.

Divorce-Online reported a 25 per cent decrease in divorce enquiries from the same time period last year.

However, since the closing ceremony finished the case load has begun to increase again back to normal levels for this time of year.

Mark Keenan, the Managing Director said: “It seems the Olympics, as well as bringing Britain together, kept couples together too as the feel-good factor took over. Many families spent more time together watching the games and the great results allowed them to share this special occasion as a family, at least for a few weeks.

“September is traditionally one of our busiest times of the year as people return to the reality of every day life after the school holidays but this year our busy period has already started after the quiet 2 weeks during the games.”
