Relationships tend to suffer more at Christmas than at any other time of the year and the main reason behind this is the stress and strain that the festive holidays bring.
This is basically so because a good deal of time and resources is invested in organizing and arranging for the occasion. That is, food, gifts and alcohol should all be catered for.
However, the enormous financial impact of the festive season can often lead to more arguments due to over exceeded budgets and unbalanced spending which can then lead to less bedroom action and the romance button fully switched off, making us more distant from our loved ones.
So What To Do?…..
1. Plan In Advance
Plan Christmas in advance by talking earlier with your partner about setting a financial budget to stick to, gift ideas and family matters. I know it may seem hard to believe but men actually can’t read minds, so pre-empt what it is you want out of Christmas and tell him what you would like from him in December and what kind of Christmas you expect. By communicating early on you can ensure that you are both on the same page and ease the tension by knowing what you’re both expected to take care of this Christmas.
