January is the month where there are more break-ups than in any other. It is the time of year when couples start to evaluate their lives and if it is compatible with that of the other person. If they will find anything wrong, then you might expect a break-up soon.
There are many reasons for a relationship to break down at this time of the year. One is that people often start to feel lonely during the cold, grey winter months and the holiday celebrations can make things worse, as it reminds them of their solitude.
Many couples are influenced by the events in their lives at this time of year. For example, if they have a great job opportunity that comes up, they might want to take it and relocate, leaving their partner behind.
Financial pressures are another reason that some couples break up. This is often because one person in the relationship is not pulling their weight financially by contributing to bills or rent payments. If this becomes a problem, then they might decide to end their relationship and look for someone else to support them.
Some people also start to feel bored or complacent in their relationships as the end of the year draws nearer. They no longer have anything left to work towards and they can become disinterested in their partner, leading to a breakup.
If you do find that your relationship is on the rocks, here are some tips to help you save it:
* Talk to your partner about the things that are bothering you. Make sure that you are honest and really explain how you feel, rather than keeping your emotions bottled up. If they understand what is wrong, then they may be able to do something about it.
* Look at ways of reigniting the spark that got you together in the first place. Make a romantic gesture, like surprising them with flowers, or buying them a gift that they will love.
* Start planning activities and events to look forward to once winter has passed. This could be anything from travelling abroad or going on an adventure weekend at a local hotel. If you are able to focus on the good things about your life and relationship, then you might continue together for much longer.
