He shook his head. His girlfriend had broken up with him the night before he came home for the holidays. He had spent the whole meal staring into space, his throat tight, while his relatives were chatting around him. The next day he met two high school friends for a drink and told him they had just gotten engaged to their girlfriend.
So it was a long weekend. He felt bad because his girlfriend ended their relationship and even worse because he was unable to be happy for his friends. The situation left him completely alone.
For many couples, holidays are a good time to inform friends and family that they are taking the relationship to the next level. If you know you're going to have the question, "When will you get married," it's fine to say "August 15".
But for those whose relationships are more tenuous, the time that elapses until Valentine's Day brings a series of difficult decisions. Will you take your new love at the office holiday party? For your family dinner? Do you want to exchange gifts? And what kind of gift: a delicate jewel or a cup of coffee with a clumsy cat photo? It is not surprising that many couples are calling for resignation.
Whether you're a couple for a few weeks or you're celebrating two-digit birthdays, escaping for a vacation with your love can tell you more about your relationship than you've ever known before.
Sometimes it can revive excitement, other times it can show you who is really based on how someone behaves. How adaptable are they when things go wrong? How do they treat the hotel staff? Are they spenders or savers? Are they more flow-compatible or structured? It's amazing how your eyes will be open after only a few days together.
