Coronavirus family isolation more likely to produce babies or divorce lawsuits?

Happy first day of spring. Will this be mating season, to the extent that cisgender heterosexual couples are imprisoned within their homes, to be followed by a January 2021 baby boom? Or, as a friend in Manhattan predicts, will the increased togetherness be more likely to lead to additional divorce lawsuits? (New York is a great jurisdiction for a plaintiff!)

How about a research study to measure the correlation between forced work-from-home and family outcomes as a function of square feet per person in the apartment or house?

A physician friend predicts “both”. A lot of babies will be born into the middle of divorce litigation circa early 2021.

[If, in fact, the baby boom theory proves correct, will 2033 be known as the “Year of the Quaranteens”?]

  1. To the best of my understanding, only immaculate conception can work from six feet away. Since immaculate conceptions are rare nowadays, divorce is a more likely outcome.

  2. (Plaintiff advice under California law) Hubby’s income is going down dramatically in 2020. Separate immediately to lock in higher alimony payments.

    Oh sorry, “petitioner”, not “plaintiff”, it’s no longer a lawsuit in CA.
