NEW YORK — Couples who were in the midst of breaking up prior to COVID-19 are now thinking twice as more of them are stuck at home with each other as things get tough with the hope of finding different ways to strengthen their bonds.

Divorce Trial Attorney Dror Bikel told PIX11 Morning News said three of the main reasons people are pulling back on divorce due are money and fears of economic instability, health insurance coverage and bonding over fear.

Bikel said as people are stuck with each other, they may rekindle their love and romance. With fears about the future, people are also reconnecting and reengineering their priorities.
