If I was to cite the most common underlying cause people provide as to why they think their relationship has come to an end, it's that they feel they have drifted apart - they don't spend time together, there's no affection, they have separate friends and separate interests. So, I'm really hopeful that the restrictions brought about by the Pandemic have given lots of couples, that might otherwise have separated, an opportunity to reconnect, bond and rebuild their relationship, and that perhaps there will in fact be an overall decline in separations and divorces.
