If you are feeling a little down this month, you’re not alone. According to a recent study, January is the most depressing month of the year. It’s easy to see why — the frigid temps, the lack of sunlight, and the lack of funds after the holidays leave a lot of us feeling cooped up inside with cabin fever, depression, and a case of the blahs. Maybe that’s why we get a little ‘testy’ this time of the year. Does winter blues = relationship spats?
The fact of the matter is that all this moodiness can significantly affect your relationship. On average, couples fight more than eight minutes a day in January and have 20 arguments during the month, compared to about 15 fights in the other months.
