For people in troubled marriages, the holiday season can be one of hope, and one of despair at the same time.

With these factors playing out during the holiday season, many troubled couples wonder if divorcing during the holidays is ever a good idea. A recent report from the HuffingtonPost.com, sheds some light on this issue.
