Meeting your partner’s parents can be stressful whether it’s the first time or the tenth time, especially if you feel antagonized by the family.

If you aren’t ready or prepared, not only can it lead to additional pressure on a shaky marriage, if you aren’t sure that you want to be married, associating with the family can strengthen your resolve to not take things further.

People experience a lot of emotion over the holidays. It is a moment to reflect on previous holidays, past relationships and experiences, you might feel resentment and a regurgement of past emotions. It is likely that the holiday will be the last straw when feelings are already at their peak.

People who may have been feeling that something isn’t right with their relationship are more likely to do something dramatic while their emotions are at their highest. Those little irritations are likely to be heightened at the time.

Couples who aren’t feeling love in their relationship will give the relationship its final death at this time because they feel they are supposed to experience warmth, and happiness and they aren’t feeling it.

When the sex is bad or inconsistent, it usually means a couple is in big trouble. When the sexual spark is gone, there is typically nothing left in the marriage or relationship.
