Relationship Breakdown: Coping at Christmas

Relationships can be tricky at the best of times, but in the run up to and over the Christmas period they can sometimes be pushed to breaking point.

December is an expensive month which creates its own stress and worry, couples can be forced into spending more time together, often with extended family and in-laws, all these factors (along with increased consumption of alcohol) on an already strained marriage can be the catalyst to think about separation/divorce.

To get through this period, ready to make a fresh start in January couples need to behave considerately towards each other and be fully accepting and realistic of the situation.  As parents it’s crucial that you remain a team, especially at Christmas, you need to put on a united front and always put your children’s needs first.

If, after the festivities you are in no doubt that you want a divorce you should speak to a specialist solicitor as early as possible.  KBL’s Family Team offer a FREE no-obligation meeting to discuss the options available to you and advise you as to the best way to achieve a favourable outcome.  We’ll be there to listen and advise and will remain by your side until you have reached a final settlement, ready to rebuild your life.
